About the Family Birthing Center:
Rideout dedicates two floors to the celebration of new life with our new
Family Birthing Center, Well Baby Nursery & Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
Expectant mothers will be taken care of by a compassionate team of dedicated
and knowledgeable experts – skilled physicians, experienced maternity
nurses and other members of the health care team.
During labor, mothers will be accommodated on the firth floor in a spacious
private suite with large windows and comfortable sleeping and seating
accommodations. The fifth floor also offers two C-section rooms, an ante-partum
testing unit and triage.
Following delivery, mothers and babies move to the fourth floor where they
enjoy private suites until they are ready to go home. Each suite has its
own private bathroom and shower and is large enough to accommodate a bassinet
as well as family members. A Well Baby Nursery and six-bed Neonatal ICU
designed to treat our tiniest patients is also located on the fourth floor.
