Obstetrics


There is nothing quite like the sound of a newborn baby's first cry as he or she enters the world. In the Obstetrics Department at Iroquois Memorial Hospital, we hear it nearly every day... yet we never tire of it. We believe that each birth is special, and we show it in the way we care for new moms and babies.

Our experienced nursing staff is specially trained in obstetrical care. They provide emotional support and comfort measures that will help mom and her labor coach and closely monitors the health of mother and baby as they go through the birthing process. Our luxurious Birthing Suite has all the comforts of home - yet is equipped with leading edge technology that enables your physician to closely monitor the health of mother and baby as they go through the birthing process.

Our Certified Lactation Consultant is available for new moms who need help breastfeeding. Our technology is state-of-the-art... from the fetal monitors that assess a baby's vitals during labor to the infant warmers that help make baby feel comfortable and cozy while they are measured or tested.
