Lovelace Women's Hospital – the first and only hospital in the state devoted to women's health – is growing to meet the needs of New Mexico. Lovelace Women's Hospital, which delivers about 3,600 babies every year, will help your delivery be as comfortable and memorable as possible. We offer moms and babies a broad spectrum of care. Whether you are considering a water birth, natural birth or a traditional delivery, you can feel confident that Lovelace Women's Hospital is here for you.

We also offer prenatal assessment, antepartum testing and 24/7 maternal-fetal medicine coverage. During labor, delivery and recovery new mothers stay in one of our comfortable, private birthing rooms. Equipped with the latest technology, each room is designed for a relaxed, comfortable birth experience and includes a private bathroom, telephone and television. Additionally, after delivery, our staff will coach you on breast-feeding techniques and provide you with comprehensive educational materials.
