Labor & Delivery
At Metro Health, we feel that knowledge and preparation are the keys to a successful and stress-free labor and delivery. Here you will find resources that will prepare you for labor and delivery, and get you ready to welcome your new baby.
When you deliver your new baby with us, you can count on receiving the passionate and expert care that our community expects from Metro Health. You will be cared for by a highly trained team of physicians, specialists and nurses in facilities that are designed with state-of-the-art technology for comfort and convenience. We have 24/7 pediatric and in-house neonatal nurse practitioner coverage to assist with any additional medical needs of you or your newborn.
We emphasize immediate skin-to-skin contact between mother and baby to foster the mother/child bond. We are one of the only hospitals in the area to offer Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT) to examine or treat a newborn having problems with pain or feeding. Additionally, we utilize the latest technology with HUGS tag transmitters to ensure your baby stays safe and secure on our childbirth floor. There are also Child Life Specialists on hand to provide the best experience possible for a new big sister or brother and hands-on child seat safety education to new parents.
