Preparing for Your Baby

At Jupiter Medical Center, we understand that a baby’s arrival is more joyful when the parents feel prepared. That’s why we have designed classes and groups to help everyone plan for and adjust to the newest member of the family.

Prenatal Yoga

Prenatal yoga offers a mixture of stretching, controlled breathing and mental focus for women during every stage of pregnancy. While increasing strength and flexibility in the muscles used during childbirth, prenatal yoga may also help expectant mothers reduce stress and improve sleep, and alleviate physical discomfort such as nausea, headaches and lower back pain.

Gestational Diabetes Management Program

Gestational diabetes is a temporary condition in which hormonal changes during pregnancy prevent your body from producing enough insulin. Jupiter Medical Center offers a Gestational Diabetes Management Program, which includes blood glucose monitoring, exercise and meal planning, and lifestyle adjustment. Our goal is to help women understand the problem and manage their health during pregnancy to prevent future complications.

A Personalized Birthing Experience

So your delivery can be a true family experience, our suites offer overnight facilities to accommodate fathers or labor partners. We also offer a lounge so family can be nearby and loved ones can share in the joyous occasion.

Your first decision as a parent will be one of the most important you ever make - choosing your baby's birthplace. To ensure that your individual needs and preferences are met, we provide you with many options and, of course, the information and emotional support to help you choose with confidence the care best suited for your family.

New Options for Pain Relief

Jupiter Medical Center is putting the power of pain management in your hands. We now offer nitrous oxide, commonly referred to as “laughing gas,” for pain relief during labor. The mixture of nitrous gas and oxygen is inhaled through a mask, which allows delivering moms to breathe it in when they feel the need. As the only labor pain relief method that is cleared through the lungs, the effects of nitrous oxide are gone within a breath or two. It has no known effects on the baby and can be used in conjunction with other methods of pain management, including epidurals.

Level 2 NICU – Opening November 2019

Preparing for your baby’s arrival is an exciting time. Even when you’ve planned every detail, your little bundle of joy may decide to make a debut before your due date. Jupiter Medical Center’s Level II De George Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is equipped to deliver babies as early as 32 weeks gestation. The NICU provides families with access to world-class neonatologists.
