Pregnancy and Planning
Are you ready for the experience of your life?
Thinking about getting pregnant? The idea can be exciting. A bit overwhelming. And maybe a little scary. However you feel about it, you probably have many questions. What will it be like? How will it change my life? Am I ready?
Well, one thing’s for sure: It can be one of the most remarkable experiences you’ll ever have. And you’ll get lots of support from your doctor and Community Health Network. Whether pregnancy happens now or down the road, we can help you get ready—as you dream, plan and prepare for the experience of your life.
Throughout your pregnancy, you'll have many decisions to make from how to stay healthy to what kind of labor you want. We are here to help navigate you through your questions and decisions during pregnancy.

Read our blog, COVID-19: What Pregnant Women Need to Know, for answers to questions about your delivery plan, visitor restrictions, and newborn care. If you have questions about your upcoming delivery, please call your provider’s office.

Doulas are women who are trained in physical, emotional and informational support during the birth process.
Tour Our Maternity Suites
Community Health Network pioneered the concept of staying in one suite during the entire stay—one room for labor, delivery, recovery and postpartum, or LDRP—for the birth of a baby instead of giving birth in one room and then moving to another smaller room. Get a feel for our maternity suites in the videos below. Click on "Explore" to learn more about all locations and schedule a tour!
Receive consultation, diagnosis and care for infertility conditions, including IVF, egg freezing, genetic counseling, male fertility testing and more.
Having a baby is a joyous occasion, but it doesn’t always feel like it. You’ve probably heard the term “postpartum depression” — more accurately called perinatal depression and anxiety — but you might not realize how common it is. At least one in seven new moms will experience the condition, and 60% of the time it starts before or during pregnancy.
A great way to get support is to talk to people just like you. Our Virtual Perinatal Support Groups meet twice a week for about 45 minutes each, and offer you a chance to meet other new moms who are also struggling with mood changes or the transition to parenthood.
Sessions are free to attend, even if you aren’t a Community patient. You don’t even have to worry about registering — just email us at bhintegration@eCommunity.com for details on how to join:
