When you arrive at Highland Hospital, please enter through the main lobby. Take the purple elevator to the Family Maternity Center, located on the third floor. Your admitting nurse will assess your progress in labor and begin the admission process.
You will labor, deliver your baby, and recover in one of our twelve birthing rooms. These private rooms are designed to provide a relaxed atmosphere so you can fully appreciate the birthing experience. Each birthing room is equipped with a whirlpool bath or a shower to help you stay as comfortable as possible during labor. You will have access to a full range of pain relief options, including alternative therapies and epidural anesthesia, as you prefer.
Should you require a Cesarean delivery, the Center has operating rooms fully equipped and readily available for Cesarean deliveries, complicated deliveries, and multiple births.
Your medical team will keep one another informed of your progress through our online information system, ensuring that every member—your OB/GYN, midwife, nurses and others— know exactly what is happening and when they are needed in the birthing room.
Most deliveries go just as hoped, but there may be times when your baby may need a little bit of extra care. As an affiliate of UR Medicine, we have a direct line to Strong Memorial Hospital and their Maternal-Fetal Care Program. You and your new baby deserve only the best.
