Before Delivery

Pre-Admission Appointment

We are dedicated to making your baby's birth a positive experience from the moment you come to The Women's Hospital. The first step in achieving this goal is to ensure a fast, smooth admission process. To serve you better, we begin the pre-admission process anytime after 24 weeks - hopefully before you notice the first signs of labor.

During this appointment, our Pre-Admission Nurse will
  • Collect insurance information.
  • "Enroll" your baby in the Web Nursery. (optional)
  • Answer your questions about labor, delivery and newborn care.
  • Begin your hospital chart and present consent forms for your hospital stay.
  • Begin baby's birth certificate

There is no fee for the appointment, and you may choose to complete pre-admission in person or by phone.

You may schedule your pre-admission appointment by using the online scheduler below or by contacting the Pre-Admission Office at 812-842-4170. We ask that this appointment be done around 30 weeks of pregnancy.
