Hours: Our obstetrics unit is staffed 24/7
The OB Department at Memorial Hospital strives to provide a patient and family centered environment for the birthing mother and family as they welcome the birth of a new loved one. Our warm and caring nurses are here to support and assist each patient through an individualized birthing process. With a welcoming and warm unit featuring all-private, spacious rooms, our patients and their families can relax and recover in comfort. Our staff’s priority is to care for you and your newborn all while keeping this unit a secure environment and family-centered space.
The choice of care options for the mother includes a variety of services. These include a natural birth, pain control and epidurals which are available to those who want them 24 hours a day, and surgical intervention as needed. We have a certified lactation counselor available as well for anyone needing breast-feeding assistance. Childbirth classes are offered for the preparation of the birth. Other referrals can be made for community services when discharged.
