You will labor, deliver and spend your initial recovery period in one of our private birthing suites, complete with private bathroom. The room is equipped with all the necessary equipment, including a special bed for labor and delivery, to ensure a safe delivery while maintaining a home-like environment. Laboring aids, such as a rocking chair, labor ball and squatting bar are available.
Queen’s has an OB anesthesiologist on the unit, available 24 hours a day for the laboring mother’s pain management needs.
After delivery, you and your baby will have time to bond in your labor and delivery suite. This is the perfect time for you to begin to get to know your baby, and also to breastfeed if you so desire. Partners, grandparents and siblings are welcome in the delivery room.
