Birthing center in New Mexico

Nice new choice for new mama’s in New Mexico

Lovelace Women’s Hospital announced it will open its new 16,000-square-foot natural birthing center in November. Located on the first floor of the hospital, the goal of the center is to provide a comforting atmosphere for new mothers and their families, and reportedly will be the first hospital in New Mexico to also offer water birthing services.

Water births may provide many benefits to the mother and infant, such as pain relief and a less traumatic birth experience for the baby. This new service is being introduced to meet the growing demand of mothers, families and providers who seek a more peaceful and natural birth process.

The addition of the natural birthing center complements the hospital’s continuum of care and birthing services. Highlights of the center include:

•               four private labor/delivery/recovery/post-partum rooms with water birthing tubs;

•               18 private patient rooms for postpartum recovery;

•               two fireplaces in lobby areas; and

•               staffed with certified nurse midwives and ob/gyns.

Each room will feature a home-like atmosphere with warm finishes and soothing colors, and wood style flooring; flat screen TVs and Wi-Fi and in-room sleeping accommodations for a guest.

Lovelace Women’s Hospital also offers a traditional birthing option in a 41-bed mother-baby unit, high-risk ob services with maternal fetal medicine 24/7, an expanded 53-bed level III NICU, 16 labor and delivery rooms, and an 8-bed pediatric observation unit supervised 24/7 by pediatricians.
