Labor and Delivery

Birth is a special event – and your child's birthday is no ordinary day for either of you.

Being pregnant and giving birth to a child is an amazing time in a woman's life. After months of waiting for your baby to arrive – and when labor finally begins – the anticipation of holding your baby in your arms can be one of the most joyous emotions you'll ever experience.

For more than 100 years, generations of families have experienced the miracle of birth with us

At St.Vincent Women's Hospital, our Labor and Delivery services are designed to help you enjoy the best birth experience possible in a comfortable, healing environment where our focus is on caring for your mind, body and spirit.

Your Unique Birth Experience

Because the birth of your baby is a uniquely personal event in your life, our Labor and Delivery services provide you with options to help make your birth experience truly one-of-a kind. We call it Monogram Maternity because it's personalized for you, your family and your baby. When you meet with your Monogram Maternity Nurse Navigator you will discuss your personalized plan of care for your baby's birth, including pain management options. You will also discuss comfort measures and other elements important for creating the right birthing environment for you and your baby. Our labor support options include:

Your Journey

When you arrive at St.Vincent Women's Hospital – whether you are in labor, scheduled for an induction, or planning to have a cesarean birth – you will check in at Guest Services, then will be escorted to our Labor and Delivery department located on the second floor. Upon arrival, our Triage Unit staff will address your health care needs. When you are admitted to Labor and Delivery, our nurses will make you comfortable in one of our private suites that include upgraded amenities such as flat screen TVs, wireless Internet access, comfortable recliners, and 24-hour room service. Following the birth of your baby and initial recovery, you and your baby will transition into one of our private Family Care Unit rooms where you will enjoy couplet care – your nurse will care for both you and your baby – during your stay.

At St.Vincent Women's Hospital, we are prepared to be your hospital of choice during this special time. Let us partner with you as you begin your journey into parenthood.

This is the birth of your baby. We make it happen your way.
