Hutchinson Regional Medical Center's private labor and birthing rooms offer a warm environment with skilled and helpful care providers–and technology readily available to support your birthing experience. Our birthing center is designed to make you feel at home, with private baths, comfortable furniture and a sleep sofa for an overnight guest.

If you have a scheduled or emergency cesarean section, we're equipped with designated labor and delivery operating rooms. In most cases, your spouse or significant other will be able to accompany you through the procedure

Getting to Know Your Baby

After your recovery, you and your new baby will move to a maternity room. We practice mother baby time because research indicates that keeping a baby with its mother is better for both mother and child as they get to know each other. This means you and your baby will remain in the same room throughout your stay.

All newborn care–including bathing and checking vital signs–takes place in your room, and family members are encouraged to participate. Your significant other is welcome to stay overnight and assist you with caring for your new baby. During this time, your patient care team will support you and your baby as you get to know each other and recover.

Our expert nursing staff members receive training and certification in specific lifesaving procedures, so you can count on them to know your baby's body and how to respond quickly to unexpected or challenging situations.

If you plan to breastfeed your baby, our certified lactation consultants will help get you started comfortably and confidently.
