Personalizing Your Experience
At St. Elizabeth, your labor and delivery experience can be tailored to your individual needs and desires. We work with you to account for your individual and family traditions, customs, and beliefs and incorporate them into your baby’s birth. This personalized approach yields high-quality care that starts your baby’s life off on the right foot.
Our skilled nurses,with more than 100 years of collective experience, provide expert, specialized care throughout your stay. In addition, should you need it, our NICU provides a highly rated quality of care that’s unmatched by any other in the state.
Going into Labor
If you’re unsure of what to do after you go into labor, follow these steps. Please note: If your situation is an emergency, you should go to the emergency department (on the west side of the hospital) or call 911.
After your baby’s birth, we will help you get settled in your postpartum suite. A nurse will teach you about postpartum self-care after delivery as well as caring for your baby, including bathing, cord care, feeding and circumcision care, if needed.
Your newest family member will join you in your room so you can continue getting to know each other. We encourage you to make decisions and be involved in your baby’s care while at the hospital. To help you learn more about infant care and parenting, every room has 24/7 access to the Newborn TV Channel, a resource developed by national experts.
