Lourdes Little Miracles Birthing Center 

Caring for moms and babies is what we were meant to doChildbirth is a uniquely personal journey, full of joy, hope and anticipation. At the Lourdes Little Miracles Birthing Center, we’re committed to supporting you every step of the way. With experienced, compassionate staff and private, home-like suites, we deliver the perfect environment for new beginnings.

 

Comfort and privacy

All of our birthing suites and postpartum rooms are private, and are beautifully decorated to create a welcoming atmosphere for you, your baby and your family. 

Each room offers:

  • Comfortable bed with a variety of recline and adjustment settings
  • A bathroom and shower
  • Additional bed for a partner or guest
  • Television
  • Rocking chair
  • Breakfast table and chairs
  • Inviting colors and decor

Following your recovery from childbirth, you will be moved to a quiet, homey postpartum room. At this point, your baby may stay in the newborn nursery if you’d like time to rest, relax and recover.

State-of-the-art care

Each of our birthing suites is equipped with the latest technology for traditional vaginal births. All cesarean deliveries are performed in our obstetrical surgical suite, which is located on the same floor and equipped to handle any obstetrical emergency. For babies who are born premature or have special needs, our Level II nursery, located just across the hall from our postpartum rooms, provides ventilation and advanced monitoring.

A team of support

We work with you and your doctor to provide personalized care for you and your baby. Our gynecologists, pediatricians and nurse anesthetists are here when you need them — before, during and after birth. In addition, one of our registered nurses is available to answer your questions and offer advice at any time during your pregnancy or postpartum.

Safe and secure

The Birthing Center uses multiple security features to keep infants safe, including identification bracelets, a state-of-the-art security system, 24-hour video surveillance and special badging for Little Miracles staff members.

Photography

Cameras and camcorders are permitted in the delivery room. Videotaping is allowed, however, the video operator must obtain permission from the delivery obstetrician and follow all delivery room instructions. For the safety of mother, baby, and staff, tripods may not be used.
