Labor & Delivery
Committed to excellence in labor and delivery
You have access to private labor, delivery and recovery rooms and a staff dedicated to making your stay comfortable. Our labor and delivery team consists of registered nurses, operating room technicians, certified nurses’ assistants, childbirth educators and unit secretaries who all work together with a goal of providing the best care possible. All Registered Nurses are trained in high-risk obstetrical care and are certified in fetal monitoring.
Our team is experienced in caring for mothers and babies throughout both low- and high-risk pregnancies, and they are dedicated to helping you reduce your risk of complications. A specialist will identify, diagnose and treat any disorders or problems that may develop during your pregnancy. If you need a Caesarean-section, we will take the necessary steps to make sure you have a safe delivery. Once your baby arrives, he or she will have constant monitoring to assure they are comfortable and healthy, and to immediately notify our staff of any changes.
First moments with your newborn
In recovery, we encourage new moms to room with their newborns for more bonding time together. If your baby is in the nursery, you can request that he or she be brought to you at any time. You will also receive instruction on baby care and self-care to assure you’re comfortable with taking the little one home.
A certified lactation consultant is available for any questions you may have about breastfeeding.
Our Postpartum, Neonatal Intensive Care (NICU) and High-Risk Perinatal units are located on the same floor as our labor and delivery suites, giving you and your baby easier access to the services you may need. Learn more about our NICU.
For the security of our patients, the Labor & Delivery floor is a locked unit. Call 915-577-THOP to schedule an in-person visit.
