When the addition of a baby is in your future, let Spencer Hospital’s team be your health guide through pregnancy, delivery, breast-feeding support and pediatric care as your child grows.
When choosing a provider for you and your growing family, Avera Medical Group Spencer, a department of Spencer Hospital, has several physicians who provide maternity and pediatric care.
As your pregnancy advances, you will be encouraged to enroll in a variety of Childbirth Education courses. You can register online for any class under Events & Classes.
Tours of the Birth Center are provided within the Special Delivery Childbirth Class. If you choose not to enroll in this class yet would like a tour, please contact us at (712) 264-8300 extension 6314.
Visits from family members and friends can be quite enjoyable for new moms who often are eager to introduce their little one to family and friends. Please respect the wishes of the patient regarding how much or how little visitation he or she would like. For the health and safety of our patients, please do not visit if you or a child is ill and have an infectious disease such as a cold or the flu. Mom & Baby Quiet Time is scheduled each day from 2 – 4 PM to provide new moms the opportunity to quietly rest or nap. The front entrance is locked at 9 PM; afterwards, admission can be gained through the Emergency Department entrance on the northeast side of the hospital.
During your pregnancy and after delivery, you will have many questions. We encourage you to visit with your physician and care team about your questions and remember that not all information presented on online sites is accurate. We do recommend a few information sources for you.
From your first appointment to delivery day, Spencer Hospital is with you every step of the way through your pregnancy journey.
Labor & Delivery
When it's time to welcome your baby into the world, the Spencer Hospital Birth Center offers a comfortable, relaxing environment for new moms and babes.
To breast-feed, bottle-feed or to do a combination of both is a very personal decision. For many moms and babies, health evidence points to numerous benefits of breast-feeding.
