Planning a pregnancy or expecting a baby? We want to be your community hospital for maternity services close to home.

Madison Hospital is the first hospital in North Alabama and just the fourth in the state to earn the Baby-Friendly USA certification through the World Health Organization and United Nations Children’s Fund. Madison Hospital has also earned the Alabama Breastfeeding Committee’s Better Bama Babies Award as well as the IBCLC Care Award from the International Board of Lactation Consultants.

To help prepare you for your delivery, Madison Hospital offers the following resources:

  • Board-certified obstetricians

  • Level II (Special Care) Nursery
  • Certified lactation consultants to assist with breastfeeding
