Welcome to The Women's Pavilion
at Eliza Coffee Memorial


Congratulations on the approaching arrival of your new baby. As The Birthplace of the Shoals, we know what a special occasion it is to have a baby, and with our more than 80 years of experience in caring for Moms and their newborns, it's no wonder that more women in northwest Alabama choose ECM.

At The Women's Pavilion we offer expectant parents prenatal educational opportunities, and the highest quality medical care.

Once upon a time there was a child ready to be born.

So one day she asked God:
They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow,
but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?

Among the many angels out there, I chose a special one for you.
She will be waiting for you and will take care of you.


But tell me, here in heaven, I don't do anything else but sing and smile; that's
enough for me to be happy.

Your angel will sing for you and will smile for you every day,
and you will feel your angel's love and that will make you happy.

And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me,
if I don't know the language that they speak?

Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever
hear, and with much patience and care, your angel will teach you how to

And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?

Your angel will place your hands together and teach you how to pray.

I have heard that on earth there are bad men. Who will protect me?

Your angel will protect you even if it means risking her life.

But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore?

Your angel will always talk to you about me and will teach you the way
for you to come back to me, even though I will always be next to you.

At that moment there was much peace in Heaven, but voices on earth could
already be heard, and the child in a hurry asked softly: Oh God, if I am about to
leave now, please tell me my angel's name.

Your angel's name is of no importance; you will call your angel “Mommy.”
