Our OB's and Women's Health Providers

INSPIRE Award Recipient

For two second consecutive years, we have been named an INSPIRE Hospital of Distinction for our work toward reducing infant mortality. The health and well-being of our mothers goes hand-in-hand with this journey. You and your baby are in good hands.

COVID-19 Vaccines

Norton KDH OB/GYN providers encourage all women who are currently pregnant, were recently pregnant, or planning to become pregnant to consider one of the COVID-19 vaccines. The vaccines have proven to be safe and effective. Pregnant women are at higher risk for serious illness from the COVID-19 virus. Vaccines help protect mom and baby. Studies indicate that mom can pass protection onto her baby. Questions? Call us at 812.801.0856.

Specialty Care for Expectant Mothers

Through its providers, Norton KDH offers advanced care most mothers would find only in larger cities:

  • VBAC (vaginal births after cesarean section) is available for appropriate candidates. Talk to your OB provider before becoming pregnant again or during one of your early OB visits. Together, the two of you can determine whether VBAC is right for you.
  • Wireless monitoring which gives mothers the ability to walk around while in labor, a form of natural pain relief.
  • Peanut balls, exercise balls used to help open the pelvis and ease labor.
  • Warm showers, another natural pain relief option. We offer shower areas where laboring moms can sit and be soothed by warm water.

Mother-Baby Education

To assist expectant mothers, Norton King's Daughters' Health offers a variety of prenatal and family education classes. For details, contact the perinatal educator at 812.801.0990.

Each expectant mom will attend an obstetrics P.R.E.P. visit during week 36 or 37 of her pregnancy. This visit is done with an OB nurse and allows mom to complete necessary hospital and labor and delivery paperwork ahead of time. Individualized education is also provided, along with childbirth information. A tour of Mother-Baby Unit is provided. Partners and siblings are encouraged to attend. Each expectant mom receives a free tote bag.

Ask your personal doctor about your obstetrics P.R.E.P. visit, or contact Cheryl Dean at 812.801.0990 or deanc@kdhmadison.org.

4D Ultrasound

4D Ultrasound

4D Ultrasound Scan in Madison, IN

Parents-to-be are excited to meet their baby! Now, expectant parents can view incredible images of their baby before he or she is born thanks to this amazing technology. For an upfront fee of $125, patients can have their own OB 4D ultrasound experience! Up to 10 family members and friends can be invited to share in this 4D OB Ultrasound where images are displayed on a large flat screen television. 3D images are taken by the technologist and put on a disc for the parents to take home with them.

When is the Best Time for 4D Ultrasound?

For optimal imaging, 4D Ultrasound exams should be scheduled between 27 and 30 weeks of gestation. The best time for a 4D Ultrasound for twin pregnancies is between 24 and 26 weeks of gestation.

OB 4D Ultrasound exams can be scheduled by calling our medical imaging schedulers at 812.801.0440 or 812.801.0686. Please note that you do not have to be a patient at Norton KDH to take advantage of this special offer.

Please Note:
OB 4D Ultrasound is not a diagnostic exam; it is for entertainment purposes only. Insurance does not cover OB 4D Ultrasound exams; they are self-pay only.

There are occasional limitations with OB 4D Ultrasound exams. For example, sometimes the baby’s position, amniotic fluid, or gestational age may affect the outcome of the images.
