Individualized care and comfort are emphasized at the Froedtert Menomonee Falls Hospital Birth Center. You and your family will have room to move about in our spacious labor, delivery, recovery and postpartum (LDRP) suites, and our staff will provide the support you need during your first hours and days of parenthood.

You and your doctor will decide when it is time for you to come to the Birth Center. When you arrive, a registered nurse will assess your contractions, check your baby and ask questions about your health, pregnancy and labor thus far. Your support person will be able to stay at your side through most of your assessment.

During labor, a registered nurse will monitor your labor and baby. Your nurse can also help you with pain relief. Pain relief options include massage, a warm shower, moving/repositioning, IV medication and epidural anesthesia, administered by a certified registered nurse anesthetist (CRNA). (CRNAs are available 24/7.)

If a C-section is needed, we have two conveniently located C-section suites. One support person may stay with you throughout the C-section.

Most births are uncomplicated, but should complications arise, you’re in good hands. All of our nurses are certified in neonatal resuscitation, and neonatologists (physicians who specialize in the care of newborns) are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

After You Give Birth

You may be exhausted, exhilarated — or both — after delivery. Registered nurses will continue to monitor your condition, while other health care personnel attend to your baby’s initial needs. As you bond with your baby, we strongly encourage “kangaroo care” — skin-to-skin contact between parent and child — as it’s been shown to regulate babies’ heart rate, breathing and temperature.

You’ll be able to remain in your room throughout your hospital stay; your support person is encouraged to stay as well. Your baby will remain in your room too, with staff available to provide assistance and answer questions as needed.

If your baby is premature or needs extra care, he or she may spend time in our Level II Special Care Nursery. Our Special Care Nursery includes private rooms, with space where mom and dad can hold, cuddle and spend time with their baby.
