Labor and Delivery

What to Expect During Childbirth

At Saint Vincent Hospital’s Center for Women and Infants, we offer 10 warm and comfortable Labor and Delivery rooms, which allow you to deliver and recover in the same room. The environment is welcoming for you and your baby, and the rooms are equipped with the latest technological innovations used in state-of-the-art childbirth centers (including wireless fetal monitoring). During your labor and birth we offer you:

  • Natural birth, supporting you with relaxation techniques, position changes, music, birthing ball, and lots of encouragement
  • When continuous fetal monitoring is required, our wireless monitors allow you to move freely and even shower to support your choice of a natural birth
  • Periodic medicine to promote comfort
  • Dedicated obstetrical anesthesia staff available around the clock should you choose an epidural during labor
