Having a Baby at South County Hospital


Congratulations on your pregnancy or on taking the first steps to become pregnant! Pregnancy is a life-changing experience, and it's vital that you have the best information and resources available during this milestone life event.

South County Hospital's obstetrical program is designed to meet your needs and address your concerns. As your pregnancy progresses, you will learn about changes taking place in your body, advice on exercise and nutrition appropriate for a particular month, labor, delivery, postpartum care, and much more.

During your first obstetrical visit, you will receive a free copy of Your Pregnancy and Childbirth Month-to-Month, a comprehensive book that encourages you to be informed about your pregnancy and empowers you to work with your doctor or midwife as an active participant and decision maker during one of the most fulfilling times in your life.

Award-winning Care

South County Hospital has been named a Women's Choice Award hospital since 2015. This designation is one-of-a-kind and identifies the country’s best healthcare institutions based on female patient satisfaction, clinical excellence, and what women say they want from a hospital.

We were also the first hospital in RI to be designated Baby-Friendly. This mark of excellence encourages and recognizes hospitals and birthing centers that offer an optimal level of care for infant feeding and mother/baby bonding.
