Giving Birth

We’re Ready

When it’s time to bring new life into the world, our award-winning team of doctors and nurses in the women’s health department are prepared to make the birthing experience as comfortable and simple as possible. In order to do so, we offer a variety of birth planning options. Every mother has different preferences when it comes to giving birth, so we find joy in catering the birth experience for each individual mother.

Your Delivery, Your Plan

There’s a lot that goes into planning for a baby. A birth plan is a document that is shared with the doctors and nurses who will be taking care of the mother. It shares birth preferences for things like managing the pain associated with delivery, the position you’d like to give birth in and even lists who you would like to be in the room with you.

It’s crucial to understand that flexibility is a key attribute to developing a birth plan. Sometimes, there are certain unforeseen circumstances that require alterations to the original plan.

Safety First

Giving birth in a hospital is the safest option when it comes time to have a baby. Here at Union General Hospital, we have the most up-to-date technology and the most qualified and caring physicians who are prepared for any unplanned situations. We use the latest 3D Ultrasound equipment to take a non-invasive look at the baby while it’s still in the womb. This helps us detect any potential issues. We are also readily available to assist with the pain associated with childbirth, if that’s a requirement of your birth plan.
