The Birthplace Video
When required, Caesarean section deliveries are performed in the surgical services department. Epidurals are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. There is also a triage/observation area where the assessment and management of pregnancy-related or high-risk complications at any gestational age can be performed.
Our Birthplace is staffed with Registered Nurses trained in electronic fetal monitoring and certified in CPR and neonatal resuscitation. Our staff is also extremely supportive in initiating and maintaining breastfeeding with new moms who choose this preferred method of infant nutrition. Finally, it's our practice during the entire delivery and recovery period to support rooming-in for all babies to promote bonding with new moms and family members and to establish breastfeeding.
