Specialized Maternity Services

We provide the extra care women, babies, and their families need.

Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBAC)

Jackson Health System fully supports vaginal birth after Cesarean (VBAC) deliveries in accordance with American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists’ practice guidelines. If you have a history of Cesarean delivery, it may be possible to experience natural birth with your next baby. Before proceeding with this procedure, we advise that you consult with one of our OB/GYNs to ensure you are a good candidate.

Circumcision

Circumcision is available to all infants younger than 5 weeks old who weigh less than 11 pounds. Several methods are used to minimize discomfort and calm the baby during the procedure, including a topical anesthetic cream, Marcaine/lidocaine injection, or a pacifier dipped in sweetened water.

Circumcisions are conducted at our Pediatric Urology office. Call us at 305-585-3627 to schedule.

Safe Sleep Program

When you choose to deliver your little miracle at Jackson Memorial Hospital, you are also selecting a hospital that earned a Gold Certified Safe Sleep Champion designation from the Cribs for Kids® National Safe Sleep Hospital program.

This highest-level certification means staff go above and beyond in a pursuit to reduce sleep-related deaths by promoting practices and education for infant sleep safety.
