Choosing a Provider for Your Baby

During your hospital stay your newborn will be looked after by the hospital's pediatrician-on-call. After your discharge from the hospital, you will need to make an appointment with a pediatrician or provider of your choice for follow-up care for your baby. Please try to choose your child's provider prior to your delivery date if you do not plan to continue seeking care through Bozeman Health Family Pediatrics 406-414-4900.

Pre-Natal Education

Before a mom-to-be is admitted to the Family Birth Center, she has many decisions to make. We ensure you are aware of your choices, help you with making those decisions, and work hard to fulfill your wishes. We offer tours, educations, breast feeding courses and sibling classes.

Prospective parent tours, visiting our birthing and postpartum rooms with customized beds and other comforts, are offered every month. A childbirth course is taught by experienced nurses, covering prenatal health and the challenges of pregnancy, caring for a newborn, and everything in between.

Prenatal breastfeeding classes taught by certified lactation counselors share tips and techniques for successfully feeding your newborn. A new baby also means life changes for older siblings, so we offer classes for expectant brothers and sisters, which cover what they can expect and how they can help.
