At St. Vincent’s expectant mothers are treated with unrivaled care and new parents are expertly coached in the process of birth. The result is that new mothers and family speak of the calming, caring birthing experience. That’s why generations of families are born at St. Vincent’s. The St. Vincent’s Family Birthing Center staff is comprised of 125 caring professionals who form an expert team with more than 30 affiliated physicians including board certified obstetricians and certified nurse midwives, as well as board certified perinatologists and neonatologists. Forty nurses, all with special training in obstetrics, newborn care and gynecology provide nurturing around-the-clock care. Additionally, more than 50 pediatricians tend to babies born at St. Vincent’s.
The 30-bed Family Birthing Center at St. Vincent’s is entirely comprised of private rooms and provides a full range of pregnancy services including the capability to handle special needs and cesarean section births. Located on the entire 5th floor of St. Vincent’s, the Center’s recently remodeled rooms are decorated with signature colors and home-style touches like bright quilts and include soothing, massage showers, a whirlpool bath to aid relaxation, and fold-out couches for spouses. The comfortable, family-centered design enables the baby to stay in the room with the mother as much as she and the family desire.
Each room has access to the latest medical equipment, which is recessed behind stylish, slide-away panels. During labor doctors use computerized central fetal monitoring to keep close track of the baby’s health. The unit also provides state of-the-art infant security system for 24-hours safety for the baby and peace of mind for parents.
