OSF St. Francis OB/Nursery Department staff have been trained in the concept of family-centered care with one nurse caring for the family as a unit.
Our standard of care includes mother/baby skin-to-skin contact immediately after birth, rooming-in and supporting breastfeeding as much as possible during your stay.
In addition, we have family-focused care recovery, which allows moms to recover with their babies when having a scheduled C-section.
Other features of our Women’s Center include:
- Infant security
- Newborn screenings
- Newborn channel
- Fetal monitoring system
- Baby care instructions

Your newborn's first professional photo is captured digitally by the nurses. If you have brought along a special outfit for your baby to wear, please inform the nurses on duty.
Through the New Arrival tool, we proudly post a picture of all of our newborn arrivals in our online photo gallery with your consent, allowing friends and family to see your new bundle of joy.
