Obstetrics

Have you heard?  More Moms than ever are choosing Capital Region Medical Center for their childbirth experience! Because our physicians, nurses and other medical professionals on the obstetrics team believe that each childbearing experience is unique, Moms work closely with the team of caregivers to design a care plan that’s right for them. The cornerstone of our obstetric care is education and family involvement is promoted throughout the process. 

familyHome-Like Comfort

All patient rooms are beautifully decorated and provide privacy and homelike comfort in order to enhance the bonding process between parents and infants. For patients with uncomplicated pregnancies, the entire birthing process takes place in one room - Labor, Delivery, Recovery and Postpartum (LDRP) room.

The Family Maternity Center is located on the first floor, just inside the Main Lobby, of the Medical Center. The unit contains five LDRP rooms, six extended recovery rooms, a well-baby and Level II Nursery and a c-section room located within the Family Maternity Center.

Be sure to take the 360 degree virtual tour from the link on our home page.  To schedule a personal tour or to learn more about the Family Maternity Center, please email the Childbirth Education Coordinator, or call (573) 632-5366.

Infant Massage
Touch is a very powerful element in human bonding, as are communication, both verbal and non-verbal, and prolonged eye contact.  Infant massage encompasses and supports all these vital aspects of bonding.   Infant Massage has many benefits to parents, infants and children. For parents, it provides relaxation, helps build parents' self-esteem and promotes bonding with their child.  For infants and children, it makes the child feel loved, promotes better sleep, boosts the  immune system, helps digestion and provides sensory stimulation.  Instructors of infant massage believe that every baby deserves respect, tenderness, warmth and a listening heart that is freely given as we share the techniques of infant massage. If you are interested in attending this class, email the Childbirth Education Coordinator, or call her at (573) 632-5366.
