The birth of your baby is one of life’s most significant and exciting occasions. The BirthPlace at Longmont United Hospital is designed to offer you a comfortable, warm, and caring environment to deliver your baby. Our skilled and dedicated nurses and staff will make every effort to help you have the best experience possible. Your health and safety are our primary concern. We welcome the whole family to the birth of your baby, if that is your desire.
During childbirth, we offer the special care you need in a home-like atmosphere. You will be able to have your baby – labor, deliver, and recover in your own private room with a whirlpool tub. When it is time to deliver your baby, your suite converts into a sophisticated delivery room complete with the latest equipment technology such as an electronic fetal monitor and a warming bassinet for the baby. The birthing beds adjust to various labor and delivery positions for maximum comfort.
As soon as possible after your baby’s birth, you will be encouraged to touch, hold, and cuddle your new baby to begin the important process of bonding. At the BirthPlace, you may keep your baby with you as long as you desire. We do encourage you to have your baby in the room with you as much as possible to facilitate bonding and a good start with breastfeeding.
