Mother and Infant Care

PH-Mother-and-Infant-Service-logoWe are so pleased to provide a new off-site service for families in our community preparing for the birth of a child. Through our Mother and Infant Care service, parents can meet with a Christian Science nurse to

  • discuss birth options in the St. Louis area (home, birth center, or hospital)
  • learn the practical ways the Christian Science nurse assists during labor
  • understand the care provided for mother and infant afterwards.

The Christian Science nurse will give continuous practical assistance and support throughout labor and birth and remain with the family for up to 12 hours afterwards to care for mother and infant. The service also provides for follow up visits during the first week after birth.

It is our joy to serve families at this precious time! Please contact Penny Swank, the Director of Christian Science Nurses Training, for more information, including rates – (314) 965-3833 x 590.
