Private Birthing Suites: Private Birthing Suites: Beautiful, homelike, private suites (that will be updated in the near future) where you will stay during labor, birth, and postpartum. These family-centered suites were designed with you in mind; allowing for a private birth experience with enough room for your family or support group to share in all phases of your stay. After the birth of your baby you have the option to move into a cozy postpartum room with a queen-sized bed to begin your family’s bonding.
Experienced nurses: Our Birth Center is staffed by Registered Nurses with over a century of combined years of experience! Continuing education is a top priority; all of our nurses are certified in basic life support, advanced life support in obstetrics, advanced fetal monitoring, neonatal resuscitation , and stabilizing care of sick infants. Our nurses have all completed Empower breastfeeding support training. Many nurses on staff have also achieved Fetal Monitoring Certification as well as Lactation Consultant Certification, and we have two nurses that are certified car seat technicians.
Support: RAMC Birth Center is proud to provide you with a nurse navigator who can help you throughout your pregnancy and connect you with the resources that you may need. Our nurses are doula-trained and able to provide emotional, physical, and educational support during childbirth. We also have several Lactation Specialists on staff to assist with any breastfeeding concerns.
Individualized Care: From water birth to pain relief options to when you’d like to eat, RAMC recognizes that you are in control of your experience, and that means letting you decide what’s best whenever possible. It is our goal to keep you informed and involved at all times during your stay. Prior to childbirth, your nurse navigator will meet with you to review your options and discuss your preferences.
Extras: The most exciting part of giving birth is meeting your new baby, but we like to shower you will all the little “extras” as well! Mini massages provided by our Massage Therapists are offered to all new moms. Dad (or mom’s support person) is able to order meals from the room and have them delivered free of charge. A special celebration dinner is made just for the new parents to enjoy by our Culinary Services staff. A baby book and newborn photos printed to a keepsake printout will help you remember this day for years to come! A swaddle sleep sack (donated in part by the RAMC Foundation) and gift bag full of goodies from Nuk as well as a hardcover book for baby from the Reedsburg Education Association are presented.
