Birthing Locations

Birthing services are available at our three suburban hospital locations: Willis-Knighton South & the Center for Women’s Health, WK Bossier Health Center and WK Pierremont Health Center. Each creates a homelike atmosphere to provide you and your baby a happy birth day.

Couplet care at Willis-Knighton keeps mom and baby together to support family centered care. We minimize the time of separation because studies show this practice encourages bonding, supports breastfeeding success and helps build baby’s immune system.
