Princeton Baptist Medical Center Implements Birth Navigator Program

Dec 18, 2018

Princeton Baptist Medical Center is excited to announce the Birth Navigator Program, its newest offering for expectant mothers. The Birth Navigator Program, which is spearheaded by Marcia Davis, RN, IBCLC at Princeton Baptist Medical Center, is designed to act as a personal guide for the journey to motherhood. While there are many special moments to look forward to when expecting, there is a lot to accomplish before welcoming baby. To help balance the two, Princeton Baptist Medical Center introduces the Birth Navigator service designed to help expectant mothers plan for the months leading up to delivery day.

A number of different Birth Navigator sessions – some of which are available at no cost - include:

  • Gift of Motherhood: This session is designed to help expectant parents prepare for childbirth by sharing information on all possible scenarios that can occur during labor and delivery. Interventions are discussed as well as epidural anesthesia and C-section deliveries. A tour of the OB and mother/baby unit is included.
  • Natural Birth: Intended for mothers who desire an unmedicated birth, this session will discuss everything there is to know about natural childbirth. Comfort techniques like water labor and lamaze coping strategies are discussed. A tour of the OB and mother/baby unit is included.
  • Breastfeeding 101: This private one-on-one session introduces expectant mothers to every aspect of the breastfeeding process. Your navigator will teach you how to initiate breastfeeding and explore some of the common concerns associated with breastfeeding. Partners and support persons are encouraged to also learn how to support breastfeeding mothers.
  • OB/Hospital Tour: We welcome expectant parents to take a tour of the OB and mother/baby unit at Princeton Baptist Medical Center before the big day arrives. We will provide information about the hospital and what you can expect when you give birth at our facility.

“In a world where everything has become so automated, it is refreshing to be able to offer this level of tailored customer service for our patients,” said Pat Franklin, RN, BS, manager of Women and Infants, Princeton Baptist Medical Center. “Being pregnant is one of life’s greatest miracles and should be an enjoyable experience, but often competing priorities and societal pressures add undue stress on mother and baby. The Birth Navigator Program goes beyond the traditional prenatal services to offer a more one-to-one approach.”
