Are you expecting a new addition to your family? Southeastern Med’s Childbirth center delivers!
From the moment you find out that you are pregnant, the childbirth center can help you prepare for the safe delivery of a healthy baby.
The Childbirth Center is located on the 1st floor of the Medical Center. Our unit is comprised of two areas: Labor and Delivery and the Mother-Baby Unit. Upon arrival you will be greeted by our friendly, caring and competent nursing staff. Our department offers modern technology in a home-like atmosphere that provides comfort for you and your family and promotes bonding with your newborn.
Our philosophic approach to the care of our patients is known as Family-Centered Care, which includes Skin-2-Skin and Mother-Baby Couplet Care. This type of care allows parents flexibility to be with their baby to the extent that they wish. The Childbirth Center is a locked unit and maintains enhanced infant security measures for your peace of mind.
This unit is a Level 1 Perinatal Center, and participates in regionalized care that provides referrals and transports for women with high-risk pregnancies and/or babies born with serious conditions who require a higher level of care if necessary to Ohio State University Hospital, Columbus Children’s Hospital, Riverside Methodist Hospital as well as tertiary centers located in the Akron/Canton area.
The Childbirth Center provides education on a wide variety of topics for newly expectant parents, including preparation for labor and birth, breastfeeding and infant care. In addition, the Resolve Through Sharing Program (RTS) offers support to parents who have lost a child as a result of a miscarriage, stillbirth or neonatal death.
