Bringing a child into the world is a profound life experience. At Riverview Health Maternity, we provide a soothing and luxurious childbirth environment—staffed by skilled maternity nurses, obstetricians and pediatricians—that’s designed around the needs of expectant mothers.
Riverview Health Maternity staff ensure all your needs are met with care and efficiency throughout your childbirth experience. We ensure you remain comfortable by providing an array of pain relief and anesthesia options. Riverview Health Maternity staff and obstetricians also try to adhere as much as possible to your labor and birthing preferences, while ensuring the health of your baby.
For women delivering via Cesarean section, surgical suites are conveniently located in the same location as the other birthing suites.
Riverview Health Maternity offers an optional program called the Golden Hour. The Golden Hour provides one hour of quiet bonding time between mother and baby immediately after birth. During this time, staff members provide privacy and encourage family and visitors to do the same.
In addition, Riverview Health Maternity offers the services of certified lactation consultants for those wishing to breastfeed their newborn. Consultants provide guidance and assistance to help establish a healthy breastfeeding relationship between mother and baby. Riverview Health also offers a weekly breastfeeding support group.
