Maternity Care Overview

“We recognize that no two families, and no two births, are alike. You may be a single mother. You may be a surrogate mother. You may have a spouse or a partner. Every family is looking for something different.

Our Family Birthing Centers provide expert care from the minute you decide to have a baby until well after your child is born. But we don’t stop there. In this beautiful place where babies enter the world, you’ll find something beyond clinical expertise. Here, you’ll find respect for individual choice.”

“Edward Hospital provides a full range of pregnancy and baby services, including:

Innovative, specialized treatment: You’ll have access to ultra-innovative technology, enhanced birthing methods and specialized care for high-risk births and multiples.
Medical expertise: You’ll have your own dedicated birthing team, including board-certified obstetrician-gynecologists and specially trained nurses.
Comfortable private rooms: You’ll have your own private, deluxe, fully-equipped birthing suite and mother/baby room so you and your family feel at home.
Fully-equipped nurseries: Your baby will have access to the highest level of care provided in the Level III Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
Helpful resources: You’ll have access to a variety of classes to help prepare for pregnancy, childbirth and caring for your newborn. We also know the transition to parenthood can trigger a wide range of emotions and we’re here to help with our Cradle Talk and Nurturing Moms programs.”

“What makes us different: Many expectant parents have trusted us with their care, and it shows. Edward-Elmhurst Health welcomes over 5,500 babies into the world annually.”

“With our individualized approach, you guide your birthing plan your way. From innovative, specialized labor and delivery services to private birthing suites, deluxe family amenities and highly-equipped nurseries, our Family Birthing Center combines state-of-the-art technology with personalized, expert medical care — all wrapped in the comforts of home.”

Private birthing suites: “When you have your baby with us, you get your own private birthing suite. It’s as close as you get to the comforts of home, combined with expert medical care and technology, for a first-class experience. Your luxurious, modern suite comes with a private bathroom, a flat screen TV, and a couch that converts into a bed for your partner’s comfort.”

Comfort measures: “During labor, we’ll help you achieve the comfort level you desire. Some women give birth with mild pain or discomfort, controlled by comfort measures, relaxation and breathing techniques. Others prefer medication to control pain. Our labor and delivery nurses are trained to assist you with various techniques, such as use of birthing balls, warm showers, massage, position changes and relaxation. If you desire pain medication, such as analgesics or epidurals, our anesthesiologists are available 24 hours a day to meet your needs for pain relief. ”

The Golden Hour: “After delivery, you and your baby will stay in your private birthing suite for approximately two hours to recover. This is a great time for you and your partner to get to know your newborn. It’s also an important time for mom and baby bonding. Skin-to-skin contact with your baby has scientifically proven benefits: baby’s temperature, heart rate and blood sugar stabilize faster. And both mom and baby’s stress hormones are reduced by skin-to-skin contact. This is a good time for you to start breastfeeding, if desired. For these reasons, we generally discourage visitors during the first hour after birth.”

Post-partum massage: “Every new mom at Edward Hospital is offered a complimentary neck and shoulder massage from our certified massage therapist, who will come to your room the day after your delivery.”

Commemorating your baby’s arrival: “During your stay, you have access to many different resources to celebrate your baby’s arrival:

  • Baby portraits: We work with experienced photographers to capture your baby’s first photograph with a natural, artistic style. Your professional mini photo shoot can take place right in the comfort of your private room and can also include other family members.
  • Cradle Club: Through the Edward Hospital Foundation’s Cradle Club, you can commemorate your baby’s arrival with a beautiful keepsake footprint medallion that includes your baby’s name and birthdate.”

“We know you want the best for you and your baby. We’re committed to providing you with a safe, optimal birthing experience geared toward your individual needs and preferences. Because that’s what every new mom deserves.”
