Family-Centered Birth Care
Whether you deliver at Women’s Hospital or at the BirthPlace at Alamance Regional Medical Center, you can expect family-centered maternity care. That means:
- Your care team will help you make informed choices about your labor, birth and postpartum care
- Families are kept together as much as possible—your support person can be by your side 24/7 and your baby stays in your room with you throughout your stay
- You’ll be able to hold your baby skin-to-skin immediately after delivery whenever possible
- Maternity nurses provide hands-on education so you gain confidence bathing, changing, soothing and feeding your new baby
- You’ll have access to breastfeeding support from certified lactation consultants
Family-Centered Cesarean Birth
If you deliver by cesarean section, you’ll have options for a family-focused birth experience whenever possible. Your support person can be by your side and you’ll be able to hold your baby skin-to-skin and attempt breastfeeding, if desired, immediately after birth. If you’d like to watch your baby’s delivery, ask your birth team about a clear drape or lowering your drape.
