The nursery is ready. The hospital bags are packed. You’re getting ready to welcome a new baby into your life, and you want everything to be just perfect. We want everything to be perfect for you, too, and we’ve been working hard to upgrade our facilities to ensure everything for expecting parents is as joyous as possible.
Here’s what you can expect from the newly upgraded Birthing Center at University of Maryland Charles Regional Medical Center.
Upgraded Labor-and-Delivery Rooms and C-Section Operating Room
Every update we made during our Birthing Center renovation has been made with you in mind so you can enjoy the life-changing experience of welcoming your new child. That’s why we expanded all of our labor-and-delivery rooms for added privacy and to ensure maximum comfort for you, your support person, and your newborn.
In addition to a bed that can be adjusted for various positions throughout and after labor, each room includes a television, wifi, a private bathroom with a shower, and easy-to-use controls that adjust room lighting to a variety of brightness levels and colors. And if you ever need the assistance of a nurse, they’re just a tap away with a connected bed remote.
As a part of these renovations, we’ve also made several enhancements and upgrades to our cesarean-section operating room. So no matter what kind of birth you’re expecting (or not expecting), our Birthing Center has you covered.
Enhanced Security for Peace of Mind
The safety of our patients is our top priority, and we make no exceptions for even our newest, littlest patients. While in our Birthing Center, you, your support person, and your baby will receive special matching ID wristbands. Your baby’s tag is specially designed to notify nurses if it loses contact with the baby’s skin or is taken outside of designated areas.
Additionally, our Birthing Center is constantly monitored by security cameras and is protected with locked entries to ensure the most secure environment for our growing families.
Expert Staff Always On-Hand
There’s nothing more important than knowing that you and your baby will be taken care of by expert medical staff. And at UM Charles Regional Medical Center, we have an OB-GYN and a pediatrician on-site 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, so you’ll be in good hands before, during, and after labor.
After delivery, our experienced lactation consultant is available to help new mothers with advice and strategies for breastfeeding.
