Pelican Club - Exclusively for Expectant Parents

Pelican Club - Exclusively for Expectant Parents

A discussion at a Pelican Club eventBecoming a parent can be one of the most fulfilling experiences of your life. Along with the mounting anticipation of welcoming your new baby into the world, parents-to-be must also make preparations for their growing family.

Designed for soon-to-be parents, the Pelican Club at Morton Plant Hospital is our way of helping new parents plan for their precious new arrival.  

Membership in the Pelican Club comes with a host of great benefits! Benefits include gifts and special discounts from our sponsors on everything from maternity wear, baby furnishings and equipment to educational toys, home meal services, child play classes and more. The Pelican Club also provides the opportunity to talk with area pediatricians. Our goal is to make planning for your new little one fun and easy. Best of all, membership is FREE and easy to join! Simply register and attend one of our "Get Acquainted" mornings.

Occurring four times year, our "Get Acquainted" morning events kick off your Pelican Club membership while also helping you tackle your planning to-do list. At our Pelican Club events, you:

  • Get exclusive access to some of our area’s best pediatricians! Choosing a pediatrician before your baby is born is an important step in planning for your new little one. At our Pelican Club events, we’ll have a short presentation by an area pediatrician that explains some important things that you should know when choosing a doctor for your child. You’ll also have time to meet and talk with six to eight different pediatricians from our area. This gives you an amazing opportunity to ask important questions to different physicians and potentially find a physician that you believe can care for your baby.
  • Meet some of our amazing Birth Center staff! Hear from some of our remarkable clinical staff about our birth center and what to expect should you decide to deliver your baby at Morton Plant Hospital. 
  • Get help with preregistering for your baby's birth. Registering with us in advance of your baby’s birth allows you to focus on welcoming your little one to the world instead of hospital paperwork. We have staff on-site that can help you navigate the registration process and answer any questions you may have. Ready to register now? Registration is also available online.
  • Tour our Birth Center at Morton Plant Hospital.  During our events, we also offer a tour of our birth center. Touring the center allows you to see several areas of our facility if you choose to have your baby with us. You don’t need to wait for a Pelican Club event to tour our facility. We offer free tours several times a month along with a variety of other education opportunities including newborn care and breastfeeding classes to help you prepare for your new baby. See all our available tours and classes.
  • Meet some of our sponsors. We’ve partnered with area professionals and businesses to provide lots of great offers specifically for our Pelican Club members. Several of our sponsors attend each event and we provide time for our members to talk with the sponsors. View a full list of our sponsors.
  • Meet other expectant parents. Whether it’s your first baby or you’re expanding your family, our events allow you to meet and get to know other expecting parents that will be welcoming a new baby too. 

We would love to have you as Pelican Club member! To register for an upcoming event, please call (727) 462-7500 or register online to attend a Pelican Club "Get Acquainted" morning.
