The Birth Place
You and your family are experiencing a very special time with the approaching birth of your baby. The staff at Midland Memorial Hospital West Campus wants to be a part of this important event in your life. Our staff is dedicated to helping you prepare for the physical, emotional, social, and financial changes that you face.
Labor and Delivery
The Labor and Delivery unit has state-of-the-art monitoring capabilities. It consists of 7 private, spacious labor/delivery/recovery suites and 2 Cesarean Section operating rooms. These suites are designed to provide you and your family with a positive and memorable birth experience. The home-like atmosphere is enhanced by hardwood floors, comfortable sofa and chairs, rocker, private bath, television, and mother's bed, which converts to a birthing bed.
Complimentary therapies for the labor and birth process will be provided.
These therapies include:
Anesthesia staff specializing in Labor and Delivery is available 24 hours a day.
You will be admitted to the Post Partum Unit approximately 2 hours after the birth of your baby and will become the "center of attention." The Post Partum nurses will care for you both physically and emotionally. The unit includes 24 private rooms equipped with a bathroom/shower, television, and phone.
Our courteous nurses will bring you your baby and return him/her to the nursery when you need rest. This will be a time to learn to care for your baby: how to dress, bathe and feed your infant. You may also keep your baby in the postpartum room as long as you desire. Provided they show no signs of illness, visitors, both adults and children, are welcome.
If you are breastfeeding, you may visit with one of the lactation consultants to learn more about the nursing process.
Before you are discharged, you will be served a special congratulatory meal that you select from our special menu.
The Nursery Unit is fully staffed with experienced nurses 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The newborn baby is admitted to the Nursery Unit approximately 1 hour after the birth and spends a short time under observation. This allows the nurse to perform a complete physical assessment of the baby and give him/her their first bath. Dad may sit by the baby's side during this observation period.
Before your baby is discharged a routine hearing screening will be conducted.
