Through pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum period, we’re here to provide our moms, newborns and families with skilled, compassionate care creating memories that will be cherished for a lifetime.  

Family-Centered Childbirth 

Giving birth is a normal, natural and uniquely personal life-changing event. Choosing where to deliver your little bundle of joy is one of the most important decisions you’ll make. Our families are encouraged to remain together throughout the birth process, and share in the celebration of new life and renewed love.

Labor/Delivery/Recovery Rooms (LDR)

At Lourdes new mother’s go through labor, delivery, and recovery in the same room. Each LDR provides a home-like atmosphere with a comfy bed that transforms into a birthing bed, a television, private bath with shower, a rocking chair, a table and chairs, and a separate bed for Mom's partner. Our beautifully furnished birthing suites are each equipped with the latest state-of-the-art technology.

Epidural Anesthesia

During labor, epidurals can be administered upon request with no up-front fee or class attendance required. A certified nurse anesthetist is available 24-hours a day.  If you have questions or would like to view a video on this anesthetic procedure, please call 270-444-2983.

Obstetrical Urgent Care

All cesarean sections are performed in our obstetrical surgical suite which is housed in the labor and delivery area.

Visitors Welcome

Your family and friends are welcome to visit you in your private LDR. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. There’s room for everyone in the family waiting room, conveniently located nearby.


Cameras and camcorders are permitted in the delivery room. Videotaping is allowed, however, the video operator must obtain permission from the delivery obstetrician and follow all delivery room instructions. For the safety of mother, baby, and staff, tripods may not be used.

Brahms’ Lullaby

When you hear your newborn's first cry . . . listen for the sweet lullaby. Brahms’ lullaby is played throughout the hospital in celebration of each new little miracle born at Lourdes.


Lourdes Little Miracle Birthing Center is located on the second floor of the main building. For more information, please call 270-444-2243.
