About Your Stay on the Birthing Unit

After 20 weeks gestation, you may report to the birthing unit for evaluation, treatment, or monitoring. Your healthcare provider will discuss and review with you a plan of care at the time of admission so you and your Family understand why you are being admitted.

Your stay will vary in length based on you and your baby’s healthcare needs. Mothers in labor will remain in the birthing unit for delivery of your newborn and for the immediate postpartum period then you will be transferred to the Mother-Baby Unit.

While on the unit, a nurse will be assigned and dedicated to you and your needs throughout your entire stay. Your nurse will assist with providing your medical care, support you during your labor and delivery, answer your questions, encourage you and act as your advocate.
