A Cesarean surgical suite is located in the Birthing Center in the event that a surgical delivery is necessary during your childbirth. Along with your physician and surgical team, a neonatal nurse practitioner and respiratory therapist will be present to ensure that your baby receives optimal care at delivery.
You and your partner will have ample opportunity to visit with your baby during the course of the C-section. When the procedure is completed, you, your partner and your baby will be relocated to the post-anesthesia care unit for further evaluation. Breastfeeding can be initiated during recovery. The goal is to keep you and the baby close together throughout the entire process.
