Private birthing and recovery suites: Your labor, delivery and initial recovery will all take place in a comfortable, private suite, which features a bathroom, shower, Wi-Fi, movies and music. Your spouse, partner or support person is welcome to stay with you in the suite the whole time. After your initial recovery, you’ll continue your stay in another private room.

Pregnancy planner: We offer moms-to-be access to a pregnancy planner for free. Expectant moms can sign up for this service in their first, second or third trimester.

Family bonding practices: We promote bonding through skin-to-skin contact and parent-assisted bathing as well as keeping mom and baby together during newborn admission and physical assessment.

Family-centered cesarean: Family is the focus of our gentle cesareans, which can decrease anxiety and lead to less pain medication for mom. With typical cesareans, a drape shields the sterile operating field. With a family-centered cesarean, the drape is placed so that mom can receive her baby immediately after birth and bond with him or her through skin-to-skin contact.

Advanced services, just in case: We’re a level II extended neonatal capabilities perinatal care facility that’s staffed 24/7 with access to neonatologists, OBs and pediatric hospitalists. If your baby needs an even higher level of treatment, we’re backed by the resources at Advocate Children’s Hospital, which offers the highest level of neonatal and pediatric care available in Illinois.”
