Mount St. Mary's Hospital

Family Centered Caesarean Birth
Posted at 11:37 AM, Nov 23, 2016

When you are admitted for labor, your doctor or midwife will be called to manage your delivery.

Your doctor may come to the hospital to deliver your baby or have another provider cover for him or her. 

We always have an in-house physician available around-the-clock to care for you. 

You will also have a labor and delivery nurse to help you through the process of labor. In addition to helping with comfort measures, your nurse will:

monitor your progress, the baby’s heart rate, and contractions
identify complications
help administer medications
Labor and delivery nurses are assigned to just a few patients in order to provide individualized attention to each mom.
