Planning For Your Baby’s Birth – Our Stork’s Nest Program

We’ve created our Stork’s Nest Program to help you plan for your baby’s birth and answer questions you may have about what to expect during your delivery.

At around 35 weeks, please contact Chante to arrange for your private appointment. You can reach her at 765.599.3193 or by email at

During your private appointment with a registered nurse, she will listen to what you want and help you customize your Birth Plan. We are very flexible in trying to meet your individual preferences and special requests. Just talk with your physician about plans for your baby’s birth and let the nurse know at your Stork’s Nest visit about your plans so we can make arrangements to meet them when possible.

We will need the name of the pediatrics or family medicine provider you have selected to care for your baby. Before you leave the hospital, we will make your baby’s first appointment and send appropriate information to the new provider. If your provider is not part of Henry Community Health, please bring their phone number and address with you so we may contact them.

The nurse will help complete pre-admission and other required paperwork. Completing this paperwork allows you to spend more time after delivery enjoying your new baby and visiting with family and friends.  She also can help you register for classes and you’ll meet some of the nurses who will care for you and your new family when that special time comes!

Your Birthing Suite

Our spacious private Birthing Suites were designed with comfort in mind. The beautiful earth tones and serene garden motifs promote a calming, soothing environment. Each suite includes amenities such as a TV, DVD player, internet access and an in-room mini refrigerator. Beautiful cabinetry keeps  medical equipment out of site during your laboring experience, but close at hand for delivery. Your private bathroom with a seated shower gives an opportunity to shower soon after your baby is born. To allow you to share every minute of this extraordinary life event with a special support person, each Birthing Suite has a comfortable sleeper sofa for your support person to rest.
