Here, moms-to-be will find all of the amenities for a pleasant birth experience in one of our 15 comfortable birthing suites. These rooms are designed so that moms do not need to move from room to room as they deliver. Known as LDRP rooms, moms stay in the same room throughout their hospital stay. Each suite includes a birthing bed, fetal monitor, infant warmer, and all of the necessary equipment for a vaginal delivery. The fetal monitor is equipped with a remote surveillance system which allows nurses and physicians to monitor your labor and the baby from several different locations around the birthing center. After the baby is born, the delivery equipment is removed from the room and the baby is placed in an oak bassinette. Should a Cesarean delivery be necessary, there are 2 surgical suites located within the birthing center; as well as anesthesiologists available 24 hours each day for epidurals or any surgical emergencies that might arise. All efforts are made to make your birth experience as pleasing as possible.
One support person may stay with mom. A recliner chair is provided for the comfort of this person. Visitation for all other persons is from 11am - 8pm daily. Video taping of deliveries is not permitted.
Each room has a full sized television. Telephone and wireless computer access is available in each room, so that you can keep in touch with other family and friends. To help keep mothers comfortable, our new room service menu service provides moms with the ability to order meals and snacks from a menu each day from 6 am - 630 pm, throughout their stay.
Additional services for newborns includes: hearing screen testing, Hepatitis B vaccinations, newborn photos, and Babies-on-line for family and friends to view the new addition to your family from their computers (special security measures are in place). A pediatrician is available in-house at all times to assist with any baby care that may be needed, until your own baby doctor visits.
Full time lactation consultants are also available to assist with any breast feeding concerns a new mother might have.
