What to expect
Obstetricians, family doctors, and midwives all deliver babies at Women & Babies Hospital. If your maternity provider has determined you are high-risk, we offer the services of a maternal-fetal medicine specialist (perinatologist). These highly trained physicians work hand-in-hand with your doctor or midwife.
When it’s time for your delivery, you can choose from a variety of birthing and labor options, along with the most advanced pain relief. Neonatologists, anesthesiologists, and obstetrical physicians are in-house 24/7.
Your family’s safety and peace of mind are first priority. We’ve taken the necessary steps to ensure your baby’s well-being, including 24-hour on-site security, supplemented by the latest in security technology and an identification badge process.
Wrist bands are required to stay on your newborn at all times to properly identify your baby for treatment, medications, and any procedures that are necessary.
Upon admission, you may receive one or more wrist identification bands, which should not be removed until you are discharged from the hospital. The hospital uses bands for patient/parent identification and to communicate medical information to hospital staff. Color-coded bands are used as medical alert devices for specific conditions. To avoid confusion, do not wear charity bracelets or other bands on your wrist when you come to the hospital.
After your delivery, we provide infant medical screenings and, for babies who need it, the most advanced Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in the county.
