Blank Children's Hospital

Maternity Services

At Blank Children's Hospital, we are proud to partner with the maternity centers at Iowa Methodist, Iowa Lutheran and Methodist West Hospitals to ensure newborns receive the best in care should an emergency arise during delivery. At Iowa Methodist, our neonatal specialists are just seconds away from the maternity unit. At Iowa Lutheran, a neonatal transport team nurse attends all delivers and at Methodist West a neonatal nurse practitioner is on-hand to provide advanced care if needed. Should a baby need specialized care after delivery, our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is ready.

Our Neonatal Transport Team travels across the state to help care for newborns in need at other hospitals' maternity center. Should a baby need advanced care, our transport team is just one call away.
