At the Johnson Memorial Hospital Maternity Care Center, we’ll treat your growing family like a part of ours. We want you to feel like you’re in the comfort of your own home, with all of the modern technology to insure a safe, healthy delivery.
During a Pre-Admission Visit and Education (PAVE) appointment, moms-to-be and their families will have an opportunity to fill out all necessary paperwork and receive educational materials prior to admission.
Our 12 private LDRP rooms offer you the comfort of your very own bedroom. When it comes time to deliver the baby, they convert into a state-of-the-art delivery room in a matter of seconds. An operating room also is available inside the Maternity Care Center for C-sections.
The rooms also feature:
Even though you likely won’t be staying with us long, we want to make sure you’re comfortable the entire time. A kitchenette is stocked with snacks and drinks 24/7, and we also offer room service. Breakfast is served from 6:30 until 10 a.m. and lunch and dinner are served from 10:30 a.m. until 6 p.m. If you like to sleep in, we offer a continental breakfast cart with extended breakfast hours.
In our nursery, the latest monitoring equipment will keep a close watch on your bundle of joy. A security system keeps all of our babies safe and sound in their cribs.
Our staff has many other pieces of special equipment including fetal monitoring and surveillance systems; infant care warmers and isolettes; infusion pumps; phototherapy equipment; hearing screeners; and oximetry equipment.
Educating yourself is the first step in preparing your family for the birth experience and beyond. Moms-to-be can register to attend a free program, Great Expectations, where you will meet health providers and other providers who serve women and children. You will learn about the birth experience and hospital environment when you deliver your new baby and be equipped with helpful resources.
Great Expectations is held quarterly at Johnson Memorial Health and coordinated by the hospital's maternity care center and the office of Johnson Memorial Women's Health Specialists.
The class is led by a certified lactation consultant who will help you find support on all aspects of breastfeeding and infant weight checks. You'll have a place to share your experiences and concerns with other moms.
While getting ready for delivery of your baby, we recommend you also learn how to properly prepare for the trip home. These partners provide free inspections on properly securing your child into their safety seats.
