From the moment you arrive, you and your family will be surrounded by the support of distinguished physicians, highly trained nurses and other care providers who are committed to your baby’s well-being and your family’s finest birthing experience. Northwestern Medicine strives to provide the highest quality medical care to meet the unique needs of women during and after their pregnancy.
High-comfort, high-tech birthing suites: When it’s time for your baby’s arrival, you’ll settle in to a private, home-like labor-delivery-recovery suite equipped with the latest technology. Rooms are large enough to accommodate mother,
significant other, infant, staff, and additional visitors comfortably. The size allows for quick conversion into a procedure room to support normal and high-risk deliveries. Several of the rooms are equipped to accommodate water birth hydrotherapy during labor upon request.
Skilled care for special deliveries: Northwestern Medicine specialists are fully prepared to care for multiple births (such as twins, triplets or quads) and emergency cesarean deliveries. Experienced labor and delivery nurses offer the care and support you need through every stage of childbirth, and maternal–fetal specialists are standing by to handle any complications. For your safety and that of your baby, a neonatologist is present during a cesarean delivery. An obstetrician and anesthesiologist are available 24/7 to meet your needs.
