Obstetrics

We provide a "family centered" approach to the birthing process that begins before the birth of the baby and continues after discharge from the hospital. Expectant parent classes for parents and family prepare for the birth and care of the baby. Mothers have a choice of pain control options during their delivery and spacious birthing rooms where fathers and other family members can be present are available.

“Professional Care with a Personal Touch” is what you can expect from us.

Here's what our patients say...

“We came here thinking St. Louis was the “best of the best” but DCH staff went above and beyond to show us that they are just as great when it comes to a positive experience.  Driving the extra miles from Lawrenceville was well worth it – especially for something so important.  We had a great experience here and would absolutely recommend DCH and Dr. Atienza to anyone.”
- Kevin and Shana Strange
