When you choose the Family Birthing Center at Lawrence Memorial Hospital, you're choosing to give birth in a compassionate and comfortable environment. Our team of the most dedicated doctors, certified nurse midwives and nurses work together to deliver quality, attentive care for you and your baby.
If it's important to you, it's important to us. We know you have devoted much time and thought to plan your unique birthing experience. At Lawrence Memorial Hospital, our
lower-than-average C-section rate means we do our best to follow the birthing plan you and your doctor or midwife have agreed on.
When you arrive at the hospital for your delivery, we'll monitor your contractions and the rate and rhythm of your baby's heart to ensure you and your baby receive the best possible care. Our telemetry fetal monitoring equipment also combines safety with mobility – as we monitor your baby's well-being and the progress of your labor, you are free to walk around your room and the birthing center, and even relax in your private whirlpool tub.
Your labor and delivery experience will take place in the privacy of your own fully equipped birthing suite or one of our dedicated Cesarean section suites.
After delivery, you and your baby will share a relaxing and cheerful private room with large windows, a flat-screen TV and a whirlpool tub. Sleeper sofas welcome your overnight guest.
If your baby needs a little extra attention, he or she will be cared for by registered nurses and medical doctors specially trained in the care of premature and sick infants. Our
Level II Special Care Nursery is supported by neonatalogists, equipped with the latest technology and staffed by competent, compassionate professionals.
It sometimes takes infants and new mothers a little while to get used to breastfeeding. Experts in our Infant Nutrition Center and The Perfect Fit provide personal lactation support to help you and your baby learn to work together to make sure nutritional goals are met – even after you go home. And, because hospitals play an important role in making the experience easier, LMH is also a proud participant in High 5 for Mom & Baby, a program that aims to improve breastfeeding success in Kansas through hospital care that supports nursing moms and babies. We are proud to say our new moms have a very high breastfeeding rate of 90 percent.
Our team of the most dedicated physicians, certified nurse midwives and nurses in the region has helped deliver thousands of healthy babies. We work together to provide attentive, compassionate care for you and your baby during pregnancy, delivery and beyond.
We invite you to “Journey through Parenthood” with us by participating in educational classes and programs that walk you through the stages of parenthood. We also offer childbirth classes online and in-person. From prenatal care to parent support groups, we want to help keep you and your family healthy for life.
