Maternity services we offer
You and your baby will be cared for in the warm, nurturing atmosphere of a labor, delivery, recovery and postpartum (LDRP) room. Should you give birth by cesarean section, you will be taken to an operating room and returned to your private room after the procedure.
Amenities at our birthing center include:
- Convenient bedside admission
- Nine private birthing suites
- Dedicated 1:1 laboring nurses
- Dedicated operating suites
- Access to a lactation consultant
- A family refreshment center
Our LDRP rooms provide ample space for you and your family to get to know your baby. Here, you will have the opportunity for hands-on experience caring for your newborn with guidance from your nurse when needed.
Neonatal intensive care unit (NICU)
Sometimes, special care is needed for infants after childbirth. Our Level II NICU provides an enhanced level of care for newborns who need extra monitoring and attention as a result of prematurity, illness or other issues.
As part of our focus on minimal separation following birth, our hospital provides rooming-in options for mothers, their spouse/partner and the new baby. Rooming-in refers to keeping your baby in the same room with you to sleep. This is an excellent way to begin bonding, and it helps mothers develop confidence in handling and caring for the newborn.
Board-certified lactation consultants provide support and education during and after your stay. We also offer breastfeeding classes to provide tips and tricks for feeding your newborn.
We support and encourage breastfeeding, as it has benefits for both mom and baby, including:
- Reduced risk of developing chronic diseases, for both the baby and mother
- Helps many new moms with weight loss following birth
- Helps the new baby develop a strong immune system
If you have any questions, please call the breastfeeding line at (615) 326-2229.
