The Women’s Services Department at Fairview Park is devoted to the health of women in our community and surrounding areas. The Women’s Services Department cares for women that require hospitalization and treatment by an OB/GYN physician.
Labor & Delivery
Our Labor, Delivery and Recovery (LDR) is an eight-bed unit specially designed to provide a comfortable, soothing, home-like atmosphere for your labor and delivery. Each Labor & Delivery nurse has received specialized training in Fetal Monitoring and is trained to assist you and your coach in breathing techniques and relaxation exercises.
For women who require cesarean section, Labor & Delivery has a dedicated operating room staffed with nurses and scrub techs who specialize in caring for mother’s and newborns.
We encourage you to call for a Great Expectations Tour of our facility. We will give you a tour of a labor room, postpartum room, and a view of the nursery. We also will answer any questions you may have. Please call (478) 274-3445 for an appointment or click here to view a schedule of classes available.
Newborn & Level II Nursery
All newborns are assessed and stabilized at birth by a certified neonatal resuscitative provider. Your newborn may remain in your delivery room with you during your recovery period. We encourage you to hold and breastfeed your newborn during this time. After your recovery, the newborn is transported to the newborn nursery where he/she is closely monitored by nursery nurses to ensure he/she transitions well. Weight and measurements are obtained at this time, as well as newborn pictures. The approximate time in the nursery is an hour.
Offering a Level II Nursery gives Fairview Park Hospital the capabilities to care for sick newborns. The nursery nurses are trained to stabilize these newborns and provide the additional care that they need.
The security of your newborn is very important to us. After delivery, we band your newborn with a security band and an identification band. We also provide mother & significant other with a matching identification band.
We encourage you to participate in one of our Breastfeeding, Newborn Care or Sibling classes to help you & your children prepare for your delivery. Find to a class or call (478) 274-3445.
The Women's Center includes a thirty-bed obstetrical/gynecological unit that cares for women who are having difficulty with their pregnancies, mothers who have experienced birth or loss, and women who require certain gynecological procedures such as hysterectomy, bladder repair for incontinence and various other associated procedures relating to women’s health.
