Birthing Locations

Birthing services are available at our three suburban hospital locations, Willis-Knighton South & the Center for women’s Health, WK Bossier Health Center, and WK Pierremont Health Center. Each creates a home-like atmosphere to provide you and your baby a happy birth day.

Because we support family-center maternity care, you and baby will move from the birthing suite to the postpartum floor where you will room together. We’ll minimize the time you are separated from your baby. Why? Studies show that this helps to encourage bonding and supports breastfeeding success. This is called “couplet care,” and we’re pleased to offer this at Willis-Knighton.

Visit each of these locations to see our birthing suites.
