New Life Center
Patients benefit from personal, relationship-based care

Before they even go into labor, patients at Froedtert Health St. Joseph Hospital’s New Life Center know they are in good hands. Te New Life Center’s family-centered care starts during a woman’s
pregnancy and continues even after discharge from the hospital.
“Giving birth is a very personal experience. Te New Life Center staff, physicians and midwives
are focused on delivering healthy babies while providing an exceptional experience for mothers and their families,” said Rebecca Jagusch, BSN, RN, manager of the New Life Center.
From Education to Delivery St. Joseph’s offers childbirth preparation, infant care, lactation and sibling classes. During the childbirth education classes, parents gain the tools and resources they need to be prepared for birth.
“So many of our laboring and new moms say they encounter things they remember talking about in class,” said Jen Harper, RN, a labor and delivery nurse and prenatal educator. “Taking the class really helps recall information more when a woman is actually in labor.”
“ The nurses educate mothers about options that are available
to cope with labor.”

Patients stay in one of 12 beautiful, comfortable, labor, delivery, recovery and postpartum rooms for the duration of their time in the New Life Center. Te rooms include a TV, DVD player, cable TV and a couch that pulls out into a twin bed so the patient’s support person can spend the night.
Te New Life Center also has a Level I Special Care Nursery, where certain infants with health problems can receive the help they need. Te Special Care Nursery serves babies who are born at 35-weeks gestation or later.
