Inside The Maternity Center

The birth of a child is a normal, natural process that profoundly affects women and their families.

At Holy Cross Hospital, our team of experienced childbirth professionals will work with you and your support person throughout labor and delivery. Your obstetrician, anesthesiologists, neonatologists, registered nurses and other health care professionals collaborate to provide the best possible care to you and your baby.

When you arrive at the hospital to have your baby, you can be assured you are in good hands. We'll make sure you get everything you need - from simple words of encouragement to the latest monitoring equipment and pain management assistance - to ensure a smooth delivery.

We support labor choices including natural childbirth, vaginal birth after cesarean section (VBAC) and the participation of doulas. With sensitive and sophisticated care, you can be sure your childbirth experience will be safe and emotionally satisfying for both you and your baby.

Throughout labor and delivery, you and your family will be in a private, homelike labor, delivery and recovery room (LDR) complete with cable television, a private bathroom, sleeper sofa and other amenities.

Our unit includes 24 state-of-the-art labor and delivery rooms and is equipped for cesarean sections and high-risk births.

After a period of recovery, you and your baby will be taken to our maternity suites to recover in a quiet, comfortable and private setting.
