What to Expect
From low-intervention birthing rooms to fully equipped operating rooms for emergency situations, Pennsylvania Hospital offers a rang of prenatal options for each woman's unique needs. The Labor and Delivery Unit provides quality medical care in a relaxing modern setting. This unit features a maternity admissions area that offers mothers privacy and comfort for their early labor examination.
Our homelike labor and delivery rooms offer mothers the convenience of staying in the same room before and during birth and for a short period after delivery. Each room has a warm, comfortable atmosphere with a private bath, rocking chair and soft décor. All necessary medical equipment for mother and baby is stored out-of-sight until needed.
The Labor and Delivery Unit includes eight labor, delivery and recovery rooms, four high-risk labor rooms and a four-bed recovery area. The unit is fully equipped for cesarean births that are pre-scheduled or for emergent cesarean situations.
You have many options when it comes to managing the pain of labor. Our staff will help you make pain management choices that suit your individual needs. Physicians specializing in pain management (anesthesiologists) are on site 24 hours a day. Our staff is also trained to coach you through natural childbirth in which pain medication is not used.
