For your very special delivery
We know that you want to give your baby the healthiest start possible. That's why we offer the latest medical technology for your delivery. Our obstetricians and anesthesiologists offer 24-hour coverage to assist your personal physician and/or midwife. Together with our team of skilled nurses and lactation specialists, we're here for you every step of the way, from pregnancy to delivery and beyond.
While most deliveries are normal and healthy, if specialized support is needed, we have direct access and special transport to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Randall Children's Hospital at Legacy Emanuel, which provides the highest level of neonatal care in this region. That's real peace of mind.
Comfort and privacy
Throughout your entire stay, all your care is provided right in your birthing suite or postpartum room. You'll have a private shower, TV, VCR, and stereo system and a day bed for a family member or friend.
If you need a Cesarean birth, the procedure will be performed on the same floor as the birthing rooms. Once the procedure is completed, you'll return to the comfort of your private room.
After delivery, it's time to bond with your baby. We take extra-special security measures to ensure that your baby is safe and snug throughout your entire stay.
