Labor and Delivery – Your Birth Experience
When the big day finally arrives The Birth Place is committed to providing you with the birth experience you always imagined. With safety as our top priority, our staff will guide you through this truly remarkable and memorable event.
What To Expect
For Women in Labor
If you have labor signs or symptoms, please call our OB nursing staff at 715-483-0576. They will assess you over the phone and you may be instructed to come to The Birth Place at St. Croix Regional Medical Center.
If you are in labor, you will be admitted to a private labor and delivery suite.
The progress of your labor will be monitored in the labor and delivery room using continuous or intermittent electronic fetal monitoring.
If you would like pain relief, an anesthetist is always on call. If you prefer an un-medicated delivery, your nurse and physician or midwife will assist you — providing both experienced coaching and helping you to be as comfortable as possible during labor and delivery.
Assuming there are no medical complications, mothers and babies stay together from the moment of birth. All newborn exams are done at the mother’s bedside.
