Nurse Navigator

You have so many things to think about…getting the baby’s nursery ready, baby showers, prenatal appointments, picking baby names….

We want you to feel confident throughout your pregnancy and as ready for the big day as possible.  Let our Guiding You Maternity Program nurse navigator, Erin Neu, guide you through your pregnancy every step of the way. It all starts with a free, face-to-face childbirth planning session. 

Erin has unique qualifications. In addition to being an RN who has worked for more than 15 years in Franciscan Health’s Labor & Delivery and Postpartum units, Erin, her husband and their 10 children were all born here. So she’s well versed when it comes to pregnancy, childbirth and delivering at our Indianapolis hospital — you could say it’s her passion. 

DURING YOUR FREE APPOINTMENT

You’ll meet with Erin to determine risks or health factors that could impact your pregnancy, discuss childbirth options and begin creating your personalized birthing wish list. You’ll also consider the benefits of breastfeeding and whether you can make it work for you, learn about available resources and classes, take a tour and get preregistered, all in your first visit.

After your initial face-to-face appointment, you can continue to work with Erin to make sure you complete your birthing wish list or make changes prior to delivery, schedule and complete your car seat safety check and more.

The Family Birth Center at Franciscan Health Indianapolis ​offers recently updated and expanded modern facilities and state-of-the-art technology that will make your hospital stay as peaceful and comfortable as possible.  And, should you and your baby need it, we have the only Level III NICU in south-central Indiana. 

Bronchial Thermoplasty: Treatment for Severe Asthma

“Bronchial thermoplasty has been proven to effective to improve quality of life in adults who suffer from asthma, decreasing attacks, reduced emergency room visits and time lost from work or school,” said Dr. Faisal Khan, interventional pulmonology director at Franciscan Health Indianapolis.

Asthma, a chronic lung disease with no cure, commonly causes recurring periods of wheezing, chest tightness, shortness of breath and coughing. When triggered, severe asthma causes the airways in the lungs to narrow, leading to the onset of an asthma attack.
