Great Beginnings Start With Us
Mercy Gilbert’s Lund Family Birth Center includes:
Labor, Delivery and Recovery
Family Birth Center suites are generously sized and designed for your comfort and care during labor, delivery and recovery. Each suite features a multi-position birthing bed, private bathroom with a shower and state-of-the-art fetal monitoring system among other equipment necessary to provide quality care for you and your baby. We also have labor tubs available upon request. The “magical hour” that immediately follows the birth of your baby is time to bond with your baby and recover from birth.
Our nursery’s certification allows us to care for non-critical care babies 32 weeks gestation and older. The Birthing Center has neonatologists and neonatal nurse practitioner to care for newborns requiring extra monitoring. Sometimes babies need unforeseen extra care immediately after birth. Our sister hospital Chandler Regional has a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) to care for sick or premature babies.
You and your baby will remain together as much as possible in your postpartum room after your recovery, as long as both of you are doing well. This promotes better bonding. Through the guidance of our skilled nurses and lactation consultants, you will learn to properly feed and care for your baby. If you had a healthy vaginal delivery, you can expect to take your baby home one to two days after birth.
