Schneck's Family Life Center

New beginnings start at Schneck's Family Life Center - whether you are expecting your first or adding another to your family. Our staff is dedicated to helping you welcome your newborn in a remarkably personal way. And, our state-of-the-art facility is home to many of the finest physicians, nurses, and staff in southern Indiana. When you're expecting the best possible care - we deliver.

It only takes a moment to see what makes the Family Life Center different. It looks and feels much more like home than a traditional hospital. With spacious birthing rooms, state-of-the-art equipment, comfortable post-partum rooms, and family-friendly practices, the comfort and happiness of new mothers and their new bundle of joy is our focus.

Here, the entire childbirth experience takes place in your private room with your family and friends by your side. In addition to five labor and delivery rooms, the Family Life Center has a surgical suite and recovery room for C-sections.

Your baby stays close to you from the moment of birth until time to go home. Baby's golden hour... first bath... first weight... first measurements... All the beautiful things that happen when your baby is born will happen at your bedside, and you can share them when you stay close to home.

BABE Appointment

The Before Admission Baby/Mother Evaluation appointment takes place a few weeks before delivery and streamlines the admission process so you aren't juggling paperwork while in labor!

During your visit, an OB nurse will help you prepare and finalize your birthplan. The nurse will also complete your hospital admission/OB paperwork, review your past medical history, and determine any additional education or information that may be of benefit to you. At this hour-long appointment, the nurse will discuss what to expect when you arrive at the Family Life Center to deliver your baby. Schedule your B.A.B.E pre-admission visit after your 36th week of pregnancy by calling (812) 522-0435.
