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, and these ideas are promoted throughout the process.
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—the labor, delivery, recovery and postpartum (LDRP) room.
The obstetrics unit contains five LDRP rooms, six extended recovery rooms, a well-baby and level 2 nursery, and a C-section room located within the Family Maternity Center.
Capital Region provides a variety of classes are offered to prepare families for the birth of their baby. Classes include a breastfeeding class, beginning childbirth preparation class, parenting class and sibling(s) class. All classes are free of charge. View our current class schedule.
