We honor your labor and delivery choices

During your labor, a highly skilled nurse assists you and your support person and provides information and reassurance. We want to meet your goals. Pain management during childbirth is about patient choice and you may change your choice of pain management at any time. We are here to support you throughout the labor and delivery experience. This could include:

  • Coaching through an unmedicated delivery
  • IV pain medicine
  • Patient-controlled epidural anesthesia
We offer no-cost doula support

A doula is a person who is trained to provide continuous and nurturing physical, emotional and informational support to a person during labor and delivery. Studies have shown that when doulas attend birth, labors are shorter with fewer complications, babies are healthier and they breastfeed more easily. Our doulas assist with births at no charge, depending on availability.

Providence doulas:

  • Stay with the laboring person throughout their labor and delivery
  • Provide emotional support and physical comfort measures throughout labor and delivery
  • Assist the laboring person with position changes, relaxation techniques, breathing and rhythmic guidance
  • Advocate for laboring person’s wishes
  • Nurture and protect the laboring person’s memory of the birth experience
  • Allow the birth partner to participate at their comfort level

Immediately following birth, we encourage skin-to-skin, which fosters the first feeding experience and promotes bonding with your baby. Bonding is an important part of the recovery process. Babies who are stable stay with their parents throughout their stay and are supported and prepared for their transition home by highly skilled nurses in the BirthPlace.

High-tech care
  • Our wireless fetal monitor system allows your doctor and nurses to check on you from any computer, at any time. Without wires to worry about, you are free to change positions for comfort and to walk around the BirthPlace during labor.
  • The BirthPlace surgical suite provides the necessary technology should a cesarean section be required.
  • Highly trained physicians and nurses care for babies who may have additional health needs, such as antibiotics or respiratory support.
