MOBILE – Expectant parents and families are invited to the "Expectant Parents Extravaganza" on Tuesday, Oct. 26, at USA Children's & Women's Hospital. This free community event will be open from 6-9 p.m., with USA employees and students invited to a "sneak preview" from 5-6 p.m.

USA Children's & Women's Hospital is among less than ten freestanding hospitals nationwide dedicated specifically to the health care needs of children and women. The hospital's Hollis J. Wiseman Neonatal Intensive Care Unit offers the area's most advanced care for premature and critically ill newborns.
Comprehensive birthing services include special maternal/fetal medical care for high-risk pregnancies, private labor and delivery suites promoting family centered care, and a Mother/Baby unit with private rooms for the newly delivered mother.
