Maternity center amenities

From before your labor starts to after you give birth, we provide comprehensive childbirth services to make your entire experience memorable and unique. Along with virtual visitation and in-room dining, our maternity center offers a wide range of amenities to make your stay more comfortable, including:

  • Birthing suites: Our oversized labor, delivery and recovery (LDR) suites allow you and a support person to go through the entire birth process in the same room. You are then transferred to a private postpartum suite for the remainder of your stay.
  • Family waiting area: A comfortable family waiting area is just steps from our LDR rooms, postpartum suites and the nursery.
  • Lullaby button: To celebrate your newborn, we provide a lullaby button you may push to announce the safe arrival of your baby.
  • Pain management: We offer nitrous oxide gas as an alternative to traditional pain medication for labor. Some women choose this instead of (or in addition to) an epidural. To further customize the birthing experience, mothers can self-administer the nitrous oxide through an on-demand flow delivery system, which is available in all stages of labor.
  • Professional newborn photos: If desired, the hospital provides a professional photographer who can take pictures of our newborn during the postpartum period of your stay. Digital photos are made available at a secure web nursery, which lets parents share photos of their newborns with friends and family around the world.
  • Well-baby nursery: The well-baby nursery is the area in which we perform baby's standard exams. It is also a nurturing place for baby to stay when you need assistance. However, we do promote minimal separation at our hospital. Unless special care is needed, your baby may stay in the room with you as much as you like.
  • Wireless fetal/maternal monitoring: Wireless fetal/maternal monitoring is a flexible monitoring solution that does not require repositioning. It provides greater freedom of movement during labor and a more comfortable birthing experience. It also significantly reduces the likelihood of maternal/fetal heart rate confusion and produces consistent, reliable data for patients with a high body mass index (BMI).

Childbirth classes

Our Pregnancy Journey series focuses on different stages of your pregnancy. These classes can help you and your family prepare for your little one's arrival. They cover topics such as what to expect at doctors' appointments, signs of labor, pain management and newborn care. The series is broken into three parts:

  • Pregnancy series 1: 20-27 weeks pregnant
  • Pregnancy series 2: 28-33 weeks pregnant
  • Pregnancy series 3: 34+ weeks pregnant
