Maternal Child Care (Labor & Delivery)

Labor & Delivery Services

The Maternal Child Care Flight staff understands that birth is a personal, life-changing event and is dedicated to providing the highest quality of care and making this a memorable experience for our patients and their families.

In the absence of complications, the patient controls every aspect of her birth experience. Our nurses, technicians, midwives and obstetricians are there to support the patient throughout the labor, delivery and postpartum period. Best of all, your baby remains with you for your entire hospital stay. 

Labor and Birth Accommodations

We encourage you to work with your healthcare provider to decide on a birth plan that’s best for you. Our care team is here to support you through all phases of labor.

Delivery Rooms

We have six private Labor Delivery Recovery rooms and five private postpartum rooms. Each postpartum room includes its own mini fridge for your convenience.

Each room is equipped with a state-of-the-art infant security system to ensure newborn safety. We have also incorporated features to keep your loved ones comfortable, including in-room sleep accommodations for your spouse or birth partner.

Visitor Guidelines

Currently, we allow two visitors at a time. Visitors may be interchanged. Siblings under the age of 12 are allowed, but need to be accompanied by a caregiver who is able to look after them.

Pain Management

If requested, we can provide anesthesia services for pain relief. We currently do not offer water laboring tubs, but we do have showers to help support vaginal delivery without medication.

C-Section Operating Suites

If a cesarean is planned, we have two operating suites located in the unit. Dedicated staff are there to provide specialized care in a comfortable and calm environment.

Virtual Tour

A virtual tour is available of the Maternal Child Care unit.

Lactation Support

We want to help you reach your breastfeeding goals. Our nurses and technicians are here to help and answer any questions you may have.

We have an International Board-Certified Lactation Consultant available to you, Monday through Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The Lactation Consultant may be reached at 702-679-9646.
