Labor and Delivery Services

Dominican Hospital's Birth Center has state-of-the-art, fully equipped birth suites capable of both low- and high-risk deliveries.

We have the latest Phillips fetal monitors with a feature that allows all nurses on the unity to view your and your baby’s health and stability from a central location. Our telemetry units (monitoring your baby’s heartbeat and your contractions) allow you to walk around wirelessly. For your safety, all of our nurses are certified in advanced fetal monitoring.

We have birthing stools, exercise balls, and a Jacuzzi to offer support with natural childbirth, and an operating suite in the Birth Center, in the event of a Caesarean Section. Anesthesia is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for your comfort and pain control.

Each labor suite includes its own TV, DVD player, stereo and bathroom with large tile shower.

We are proud to provide you with everything you need to make your birth experience just the way you want it. Family and friends are welcome to experience the birth with you, or remain in the comfortable waiting area.

We encourage bonding with your newborn from the very start. Your healthy newborn will remain in your room, with you, during your entire stay. To increase safety, each suite has the materials needed for infant resuscitation in the event of an emergency. In addition, a skilled neonatal nurse attends each delivery to ensure your baby's safety.
