Pregnancy and Delivery Care Team


Pregnancy Care and Delivery: Why Choose Vanderbilt

  • Experienced doctors: Every member of our team is specially trained for caring for women during pregnancy, labor and delivery. This includes board-certified obstetricians, certified midwives, maternal-fetal medicine specialists, nurses specializing in obstetrics and labor and delivery, and obstetric anesthesiologists. We have the skills and training to care for any woman’s pregnancy, including those at high risk of complications.
  • Specialized expertise: When you’re pregnant, the best-laid plans may change. By choosing Vanderbilt, you can be sure you have everything and everyone you need, whatever happens. If you or your baby need a specialist, our colleagues are at the ready. If your baby needs special care before or after birth, we have the most advanced Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and the Fetal Center at Monroe Carell  Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt.
  • Personalized care: Our team works with you to develop a care plan to meet your unique needs. We consider everything from the type of delivery you want to any medical challenges you might have. From nitrous oxide for pain management during labor to birthing balls and tubs to on-call doulas, your goals and comfort are important to us.
  • Convenience:  You don’t have to choose between convenience and the best possible care. We partner with hospitals throughout the region to allow you to deliver close to home. Prenatal care is offered at our Vanderbilt One Hundred Oaks clinic as well as women’s health centers in other communities. High-risk deliveries usually occur at Vanderbilt University Hospital in Nashville. In other cases, our clinicians also deliver at Northcrest, Williamson and Maury Regional medical centers.
  • Advanced care: As part of a large medical center, our team and their colleagues can address complex medical problems that may affect a pregnancy. These include diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, lupus, seizure disorder, loss of an earlier pregnancy, history of drug or alcohol use, or a history of pregnancy complications such as preterm labor or preeclampsia. We also care for women pregnant with multiples.
