As your due date approaches, you’ll want to acquaint yourself with both the place and the particulars of your upcoming birth experience. This program includes a guided tour of our Women’s Hospital, which includes Labor & Delivery, Well Baby Nursery, and the Mother/Baby Wing. There will also be a question and answer session with our professional staff as well as a presentation discussing what to expect from admission to discharge.
Group tours are held four times a month and last approximately one hour. Extended families are invited. If a young child should become restless and disruptive to others we ask that the child be escorted out of the room. Many families find it easier to make child care arrangements for younger children.
In addition to attending our maternity orientation we recommend that expecting parents take our Childbirth Preparation class. This series of classes is designed to prepare couples for childbirth. Topics including relaxation, breathing techniques, stages of labor, and the birth process are covered in the Childbirth Preparation class.
This tour is recommended for both parents. Pre-registration is required.
