Our Story Begins With You, the Family
The Birthing Center at Wellington Regional Medical Center is devoted to providing quality healthcare and promoting family unity.
Our primary focus is on nurturing families and empowering them to make choices. Because every family is different, you are encouraged to participate in joint decisions with healthcare providers regarding the birthing process: your physical surroundings, birthing assistance and partner participation.
If you haven’t already done so, now is a great time to schedule your tour of the maternity unit so you can meet our wonderful staff! Call 561-798-9880.
We hope that you and your family will appreciate the privacy and security of our delivery rooms. Our private labor/delivery/recovery rooms are warm and cheerful — the perfect setting to welcome your new baby. You’ll also have the comfort of knowing that our neonatal intensive care unit is only steps away from your room if your baby should require more advanced care.
A security sensor will be placed on your baby to ensure their safety. You’ll have comfort of mind knowing that the maternity unit is secured 24 hours a day. In-room accommodations are available for fathers or partners, and siblings are welcome to visit after new brothers and sisters are born.
Family choices are important as physicians, midwives and maternal infant nurses guide mothers through labor and childbirth.
After delivery, your maternal infant nurse will continue to care for you and your baby during your hospital stay. The nurse will also serve as a source of information and education in making appropriate plans for your baby’s wellbeing. In the event of a Cesarean section, two surgical delivery rooms are immediately accessible and board-certified anesthesiologists and neonatologists are available 24 hours a day.
Personalized care is what best characterizes the Birthing Center. You will find the staff very knowledgeable and nurturing and always available to answer your questions allowing for a smoother, more enjoyable delivery experience.
All new mothers “room in” with their babies to facilitate bonding. However, should you need to rest, “babysitting” services are available at night. A certified lactation consultant is available upon request to provide individual assistance and instruction on breastfeeding.
Welcoming a new addition to the family is a reason to celebrate and we want to help you do it in style with a gourmet prepared dinner for two on your last night in the hospital. Dinner includes your choice of expertly prepared steak, seafood, pasta or chicken as well as delicious sides and desert. Additional options are available for new parents with special dietary restrictions.
Share Your New Addition With the World
We know that all of your friends and family are excited to see photos of your new baby, so we have made it as easy as possible to share the great news using Snapchat. While in Wellington Regional, be sure to check out our “It’s a Boy” and “It’s a Girl” Snapchat filters available on the Snapchat app and easily share photos of your new baby with the world!
A photographer is available to take pictures of your new baby during your stay with us. With your permission, your baby’s photo can be posted on a secure website so other family members and friends can share in your joy.
