The obstetric unit is located on the second floor of Saint Alphonsus and is designed to make your labor, delivery, recovery and postpartum recovery as comfortable as possible. Our spacious, private, homelike birthing suites are furnished with a television, shower, phone and crib. Jacuzzis and VCRs/DVD players are available by request. Your support person is welcome to stay with you (if you or your support person is a minor, parental consent is required).
Other immediate family members or designees are welcome to join you and your support person as partners in your delivery experience or to await the exciting event in our comfortable family waiting room with a TV and snacks and drinks available for purchase. The obstetric staff works with you and your physician to design a birthing experience that meets your personal wishes, (including the type of anesthesia you prefer, if any) to help ensure the health of you and your baby.
After your delivery, you and your baby may stay together in your room as much as you wish. A licensed lactation consultant is available to support and encourage breastfeeding. Should your baby have special needs, he or she will be cared for in our fully equipped nursery just across the hall from your room.
