At KVH Hospital, we believe each birth is a unique and personal experience. With a highly skilled team of physicians, nurses, and other health professionals, the Family Birthing Place provides a safe, comfortable, family-centered maternity care environment.
We've combined a relaxed birthing atmosphere with the security of being in the hospital. Special Labor Delivery Recovery Postpartum (LDRP) suites are designed for the comfort of new moms and their families. These suites allow moms to remain in the same room throughout labor, delivery, and postpartum stages.
Suites are private and include a birthing bed, rocking chair, TV, DVD player, and a convenient sleeper sofa for an overnight adult guest. Many also include a whirlpool tub. All the necessary medical equipment to safely care for mom and baby are built into cabinets and can be accessed as needed during the birthing process.
We have one designated surgical suite that is equipped for Cesarean births. However, should you or your baby need specialized care you may be transferred to another hospital that provides high-risk obstetrical or newborn care.
