Karen’s Place Maternity Center

Karen's Place Maternity Center, located in Ashland, Kentucky.

Karen’s Place Maternity Center (KPMC) provides residential treatment for pregnant and postpartum women with substance use disorders. KPMC is located on the campus of King’s Daughters Medical Center in Ashland, Kentucky, and welcomes up to 21 mothers and expecting mothers at a time.

Karen’s Place Maternity Center opened in 2018 to give expecting mothers hope on their recovery journey. Since its opening, KPMC’s staff and dedicated doctors have helped welcome dozens of babies into the world, 76 percent of which have returned to the center with mom in five days or less.

Services Offered:

Statistics show 19 in every 1,000 babies in the state are born with Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) signs or symptoms. Symptoms include: seizures, sleep deprivation, excessive weight loss, and developmental issues. At Karen’s Place Maternity Center we help to decrease those symptoms and lessen days spent in the hospital.

Clients have the opportunity to receive residential treatment the entire length of their pregnancy and up to three months post-delivery while learning neonatal care skills. Baby and mom live together at the facility, giving mothers in recovery an opportunity to develop the critical early bond with their baby.

While at KPMC, mothers receive individual counseling along with weekly recovery small group and group therapy sessions. State-certified case managers work with each client to improve their recovery environment by addressing family, educational, housing, and vocational needs.
