We encourage family closeness and participation at each stage – before, during and after the birth of your baby. That's why our spacious labor, delivery and recovery (LDR) suites allow you to labor, deliver and recover in an atmosphere that looks more like home than a hospital.
Each room is individually and beautifully decorated in soothing and pleasant colors. The birthing bed adjusts to your individual birthing preference. There is even an adjustable recliner for fathers-to-be to nap on. Each private bath is equipped with a shower and luxurious jacuzzi, which can help relieve back discomfort during the early stages of labor and assist the healing process after delivery. There's also a remote control television and VCR. C-section and recovery room care are provided by our staff in the Center.
Sharing Your Birthing Experience
The staff at OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center wants your delivery to be a positive, memorable experience as your family grows. During your labor experience, your labor coach is allowed to be by your side to help you through each stage of labor to the birth of your little one. We know there are often other family members who wish to be present as well. We allow two other support people in addition to your coach to share in your birth experience.
