Labor, Delivery and Recovery
For the birth of your baby, we’ve prepared a private, spacious, Labor, Delivery and Recovery (LDR) suite. With an adjustable bed, and sofa sleeper for your significant other, our suites are designed to increase your comfort during labor. Each suite is also fully equipped to help ensure a safe delivery and outstanding medical care for the first hours of your baby’s life.
After your baby is born, you have had time to recover, and we know that your baby is doing well, you will move to another private room in our Women’s Pavilion.
Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)
Glenwood also offers the services of the area’s finest Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), including highly trained neonatal physician specialists, nurse practitioners and nursing staff. You can have peace of mind in knowing that the NICU is located right down the hall, should complications arise during delivery.
We encourage mothers to keep their new babies in their rooms as much as possible. Rooming in gives families time to bond and helps new parents learn how to care for their infant with the professional assistance of our nursing staff.
We offer lactation assistance for mothers who choose to breastfeed. All our nurses are trained in lactation and can help you learn the best techniques for feeding your baby and how to be sure your baby is getting enough milk.
