FCMC LABOR & DELIVERY

Family Birth Center

Giving birth is a highly personal experience. With our renovated maternity suites and postpartum rooms that feel more like a spa getaway, we provide a comfortable setting to welcome your family’s new addition.

“I had a great experience with the arrival of my son. All the nurses and doctors were wonderful and professional. I wouldn’t have wanted to have my baby anywhere else.”

Our Services

Our #1 Priority Is The Care Of Mother and Child.

LABOR & DELIVERY

Our birthing suites are pretty sweet. All rooms include large tubs with a speciality step for ease of entering, a couch that turns into a bed for your coach to stay with you throughout labor, large screen TVs, free wifi, and state of the art fetal monitors that give you the ability to walk around during labor.. With 1:1 active labor nursing care, all our nurses are trained via the Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses. We also have an operating room to handle c-sections and on staff nurse anesthetists (CRNAs) for epidurals. Our entire staff is open minded to supporting the birth plan you desire in a safe environment for mom and baby.  

Providers: Dr. David Beckstead, Dr. Stuart Knapp, Dr. Daniel Patten

Nursery

The health and safety of your newborn is our priority. We encourage rooming in after delivery, but also have a nursery to care for your baby. In the nursery is where your newborn will receive hearing, congenital heart, and metabolic screenings, as well as immunizations. Located by the nurses desk to give that extra love and attention, and set in a secure facility with an infant security plan, all nurses that care for your newborn are certified through the NRP (Neonatal Resuscitation Program).

POSTPARTUM

The most important member of our team is you!  After labor and delivery, we are attentive to your postpartum care and provide a calming environment to encourage skin-to-skin comfort right after delivery so you can bond with your newborn. Our large postpartum room has a deep tub to soak in and nurses provide newborn education for mom. The nurses that watch over your newborn also watch over you. When nurses change shifts, a bedside handoff report is done with the details of your delivery and post delivery needs to ensure a continuity of care. Your same doctor that delivered your child will also come in for a postnatal visit. When it’s time to go home, you receive a gift pack that includes a stroller and necessities to get you through those first few days.

PRENATAL

We strive to treat each and every expecting parent like a VIP with prenatal options flexible to your needs and schedule. Our “Growing Expectations ” program includes classes in childbirth preparation and lactation, complementary for our patients. Anyone considering birth at FCMC is encouraged to call for a tour of our labor & delivery suites, nursery and postpartum areas. For parents already receiving care through Willow Valley, this prenatal tour will include pre-registration. “Growing Expectations” also offers Big Brother/Big Sister parties for baby’s older siblings, scheduled around you.

LACTATION

We offer the gold standard in lactation with an IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant) and CLC on staff and on call for your lactation needs. In addition, our nursing staff attends annual lactation training to keep current in providing the best breastfeeding support. We offer one-on-one breastfeeding help in postpartum recovery, during your hospital stay, and for outpatient and in-home consultations. Lactation support is available for anyone, regardless of where their baby is born. As part of the “Growing Expectations” program we offer prenatal lactation classes for you and your partner free of charge. To schedule a lactation consultation call: 435.554.1098.

With every bundle of joy, capturing those first images is possible with a professional photographer that provides one free picture with baby’s photo, foot, and weight. You can also choose to have your news celebrated on social media and our nursery website page for friends and family to share.
