Single Room Maternity Care
Your entire birthing experience takes place in a large, comfortable and private suite. We've designed it with you and your family in mind. There's a state-of-the art birthing bed, monitoring system, and a private bath. We concentrate on what's really important – the birth of your child. With our highly qualified and experienced physicians and nurses you and your baby will receive quality obstetrical care. Our nurses are known for their gentle touch and concern for new moms and their babies. We know that no two mothers, babies or births are alike. At ALMH Family Maternity Suites, we encourage family involvement and individuality.
During labor and delivery, you will have one of the nurses assist you in every way possible. You will always be informed of your progress and a nurse will administer any medications ordered by your doctor. Your partner or support person may remain with you throughout the labor and delivery and may help coach you through the stages of your baby’s birth.
And when your baby arrives, you’ll have some time to be with your newborn before he or she is taken to be admitted in the nursery. At that point we’ll check your baby’s heart rate, temperature and monitor other important indicators of a newborn’s health and well-being. Throughout your stay with the Family Maternity Suites at ALMH we will care for you together in your private suite. We will we encourage you to keep your child in your room as much as you desire – day and night – to help you establish a warm and nurturing relationship. If you need a rest, we are happy to hold and care for your little one.
ALMH is proud to provide state-of-the art infant security with the HALO Security System to ensure your peace of mind.
