Pregnancy and Childbirth
Expecting? Expect the very best at United Regional. We offer personalized care before, during and after pregnancy. Prenatal and Childbirth Classes are offered for expectant moms so that they will be well-prepared for the delivery, and classes on Infant CPR and Breastfeeding. We also offer a Special Siblings Class, which is designed to help future big sisters and brothers understand more about the birth of their new sibling. Click here to see a list of classes.
The Mother & Baby Unit
The Mother & Baby Unit in the Bridwell Tower is the perfect place to meet the love of your life, your baby. It has a comfortable, home-like atmosphere and includes labor and delivery rooms, with leading-edge technology, antepartum and postpartum rooms, C-Section rooms, and a Level II Nursery. And with our experienced and caring staff, you can relax knowing that you and your newborn are in capable hands.
Most newborns will stay with their parents in family-centered post-partum rooms. But if an infant is premature or born with medical issues, such as jaundice or infections, our Level II Special Care Nursery and its team will be on hand to provide specialized care. The Level II Nursery has advanced equipment to care for complex conditions premature babies often experience including infant CPAP, Giraffe beds, and infant ventilators.
Tour the Facilities
Most families will have plenty of opportunities to get acquainted with the Bridwell Tower birth facilities before delivery, since tours are offered monthly. Tours are held the last Sunday of every month at 2 p.m. in the Mother & Baby Unit.
Reservations can be made for tours and classes by contacting Call-A-Nurse at (800) 982-9799 or (940) 764-8570.
