Labor and Delivery
Labor and Delivery Unit at North Suburban Medical Center
Focused on You and Your Baby's Health & Safety During Childbirth
When the big day comes, expectant moms will go to North Suburban's third floor Labor and Delivery Unit to be assigned a room and evaluated for labor. Moms arriving for scheduled inductions, external versions, or Cesarean births, please check in at the main admissions desk.
Your Baby. Your Choice.
Throughout your time at our hospital for childbirth, we will be asking you what you want and how we can help. What's important to you and your baby is important to us. The Women's Center team will do everything they can to provide a personalized experience that meets your needs.
North Suburban's State of the Art Birthing Facility Features:
- Spacious birthing suites with a shower and sleeping accommodations for spouse/partner
- Birth balls, rocking chairs and squat bars to use while labor progresses
- Surgical suites for women delivering by Cesarean section or for post-birth procedures
- Flat-screen TVs with DVD/VCR/CD combination units
- Internet access
Following delivery, mom and baby are moved to a private Mother & Baby Suite where they continue recovery until their hospital stay ends.
One-on-One Care for Mom and Baby
At North Suburban, each expectant mom is assigned her own nurse. She is highly experienced in childbirth and she will help you throughout your delivery. Plus, each baby has their own neonatal nurse practitioner watching after them as soon as they are born. One nurse for mom and one nurse for baby.
Childbirth Pain Management
North Suburban Medical Center offers 24 hour anesthesia service to provide quick relief from the discomfort of labor. For mom's choosing a non-medicated birth, we have squat bars, rocking chairs and birthing balls.
We accomodate all levels of involvement for families. Our goal is to help make your child's birth as memorable as possible while making sure that mom and baby are always safe. Families are allowed to be in attendance during the childbirth process and we have a comfortable waiting room nearby for additional visitors.
