We perform interventions both in utero and after birth. Learn more about what to expect.

Families Together

As part of Augusta University Medical Center—and connected via a short walkway—the Children’s Hospital of Georgia is the only medical complex in the state where both mother and baby are cared for under one roof. This means that as soon as she is able after delivery, a mother may be wheeled from the OB unit on the 7th floor of the adult medical center to the neonatal intensive care unit on the 5th floor of the children’s hospital, in order to see and help care for her child. 

A Place to Call Home

Since one concern is the risk of early labor, families from outside the area may be asked to remain in Augusta starting a few weeks prior to the delivery date—a potential hardship. But unlike other centers, an on-campus Ronald McDonald House is located just a short walk away from our hospital front doors. Opened in 2015, the Ronald McDonald House offers free housing for any family with seriously ill children.
