Offering a New Environment for Birthing at WK

The NestWillis-Knighton has researched what mothers to be want for birthing and we’re responding with the NEST, a comprehensive program of services that reflects a family friendly atmosphere. Our phased renovation plan launches at WK Pierremont Health Center early in 2022 and will follow at South and Bossier.

You and your doctor will develop your birthing plan and then we’ll deliver the ideal environment to enhance the occasion. At the NEST, you will labor, deliver and recover in the same room.  (This concept is already available at WK Bossier Health Center). The transformation of the entire labor and delivery unit — hospital rooms, nursery, lactation and consulting rooms, and waiting areas — is designed with a residential feeling, reinforcing hospitality in the hospital.

Comfort is a key factor throughout – from the specialized beds for you to the HALO® Bassinest® beds for baby to the guest furnishings to accommodate your birth partner for an overnight stay. Subtle lighting, relaxing colors, light wood tones, solid surface countertops have a home design touch.

The en suite bathrooms feature style and comfort too with a sleek vanity area that includes built-in hair dryer to a spacious glassed-in shower.  We’ve also added a spa robe and luxury linens to enjoy during your stay at the NEST.    

Expect an elevated dining experience with a complimentary gourmet meal for two to celebrate your special occasion. While you can also choose comfort foods from our traditional hospital menu, you can also order from the special NEST Spa Menu crafted exclusively for you. Just let the menu assistant know what sounds good to you.

One of the most uplifting features of the NEST is art and photography from local talent that reflects our community and Willis-Knighton’s deep ties to this region.

We look forward to welcoming you to the NEST where we are proud to work with you and your doctor to deliver the next generation.
