Seton Center for Women and Children

To get you and your baby off to a healthy and happy start, you'll want to see your doctor regularly throughout your pregnancy. You'll also want to learn all you can about childbirth and caring for your newborn. St. Vincent's Seton Center for Women and Infant's Health is a wonderful resource to help you do this.

The goal of our Seton Center is to offer new moms and families consistent information and support. Our programs will help you stay healthy during pregnancy and prepare you for the birthing experience. We also offer information and classes for siblings, infant healthcare and skills to manage your new life.
