A Birthing Experience Focused on You
When you’re ready to deliver, you want to know your birthing choices will be respected. At University Health System, our first priority is keeping you and your baby safe during delivery. We also accommodate as many of your birth plan requests as we possibly can.
We honor your wishes and tend to your needs with the world-class medical care only a teaching hospital can provide. When you choose University Hospital for labor and delivery, you can expect a physician to deliver your baby and other experts to support you during labor. You’ll also have access to:
Immediate pain relief through our in-house anesthesiologist who works only with patients on our women’s floor
Specially trained nurses who love caring for new mothers and babies
Private rooms for delivery and recovery
Operating rooms inside our Labor & Delivery unit for scheduled and emergency Cesarean sections
Multi-layered security to safeguard your newborn
Family-centered experience before, during and after your delivery
Couplet care so your baby can stay by your bedside for early bonding (for births without complications)
Breastfeeding support and other guidance you may need to care for your baby at home with confidence
