Women’s Care Team

Baptist Health Women’s Care is proud to be the exclusive provider of the CenteringPregnancy® prenatal program in Western Kentucky. Centering is a model of prenatal care which empowers women through assessment, education, and support in a small group setting.

Baptist Health Women’s Care works closely with the March of Dimes and supports its mission to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.

In 2007, we were invited to join a national project called “Healthy Babies Are Worth the Wait” sponsored by Johnson & Johnson Pediatric Institute, the March of Dimes and the Kentucky Department for Public Health. This was a three-year initiative with the goal of preventing prematurity in six regions of the Commonwealth.

Providers at Baptist Health Women’s Care follow the guidelines and recommendations of their professional organization, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.

We are proud to be a part of the Every Woman Southeast Initiative, an initiative to share and develop expertise on preconception / interconception health care, policies, research, programs, social marketing, and evaluation in order to improve the health of women and infants in our region of the United States.
