Your First Trimester (Months 1 to 3)

    We offer customized tours for you (moms-to-be) and your family. One
    is a special educational tour to help expectant parents make decisions about your hospital care as well as your labor and birth options. We also have special tours for the soon-to-be big brothers and sisters. Call 402.219.7000 to set up your tour.
  • Check your vaccination records
    It is very important for you to ask your provider’s office for your immunization records to determine if, and when, you last received the Tdap vaccine (Tetanus, Diptheria, and Pertussis). Pertussis (also known as whooping cough) is a highly contagious respiratory illness. The commonly used vaccine for whooping cough gives protection for less than ten years, so unless you were re-vaccinated as an adult, you could get whooping cough.
  • Read or learn as much as you can about your pregnancy 
    Check us out on Facebook ( for great tips on eating and exercise as well as information on the changes you and your baby are going through.

  • Financial planning
    Contact your insurance company and “pre-certify,” if needed. We will work with you and your insurance company to meet the goals you and your partner have set for the birth of your child. We also have a payment plan for people who are not insured. For assistance with financial planning, call 402.219.7152.
