Wesson offers all the benefits of a large teaching hospital, including the only neonatal intensive care unit in the area, plus a small-community feel with a focus on the needs of patients and their families, says labor and delivery nurse Tracy Saracino. While medical interventions are available for patients who want or need them, the staff also happily supports women seeking natural births. The unit offers support every step of the way, from prenatal classes for expecting families (including a "Daddy Boot Camp" and classes for grandparents and sibs), interpreters who speak a wide range of languages, lactation consultants and even a car seat installation program.
