One of the most joyous events a family can experience is the birth of a child.
MaineGeneral offers a range of pregnancy, childbirth and newborn care services, classes and amenities in our warm and inviting Maternity & Pediatrics center at the Alfond Center for Health in Augusta. This includes our Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and Pediatric Hospitalists.
We offer many birthing options, a comprehensive childbirth and parenting education program
and support groups to complement your choices and needs.
For more information about any of our maternity education classes, or to register for an upcoming class, call 1-855-4MGHINFO (1-855-464-4463).
Our doctors provide personal, state-of-the-art obstetric care, including routine pregnancy, high-risk conditions, cesarean delivery, vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC) and tubal ligations.
Our providers also include certified nurse-midwives who provide comprehensive ob/gyn care and offer water birthing to those who are interested in that birthing option.
To complement our Maternity Services, we also rely on the expertise of pediatric professionals trained to treat children from birth through adolescence.
Additionally, two of our practices – Kennebec Pediatrics
and Winthrop Pediatric & Adolescent Medicine –
are devoted to newborn and children's health.
