What Makes the Birth Experience at Woman’s Different?

  • A 1-to-1 nurse-to-patient ratio means mother and baby receive all the support, expertise and compassion they need. We’re one of the few hospitals in the U.S. with such a nurse ratio in labor and delivery.
  • We respect your birth plan, whether you want natural birth or an epidural, want to try a vaginal delivery even though you’ve had a cesarean before, or want to try a birthing ball, various birthing positions or massage techniques. You are welcome to bring a doula with you, though our labor and delivery nurses are trained in many of the same techniques.
  • Our newly renovated rooms are designed to feel as much like home as possible backed by state-of-the-art equipment
  • We have board-certified anesthesiologists, OB/GYNs, maternal-fetal medicine specialists and neonatologists 24/7 to handle any unexpected issues.
  • Extensive mother-baby bonding after delivery, even for those born by cesarean section, during the critical ‘golden hour.’ Rather than keeping a baby in the nursery, we let each mother recover with her baby in her arms if she wishes.
  • If you need rest after a long labor, you may sleep while your baby stays in the nursery. The choice is yours.
  • Breastfeeding coaching and support after delivery is available 7 days a week.
