Family Birthplace – Obstetrics Care
MMC offers a Labor, Delivery, Recovery, Postpartum (LDRP) approach to obstetric care in Ashland, WI. LDRP is both a concept of offering the ultimate birth experience and the assurance of optimal medical care during birth.
LDRP allows expecting mothers to have the childbirth experience they desire, while having the assurance of an expert medical team should any complications arise with the pregnancy and delivery.
Our LDRP suites allow the mother-to-be and her partner to be in a room that has a homelike atmosphere. Each birthing suite has large windows allowing for natural light, along with plenty of room for family to stay. There is also a hide-a-bed for family members who want to stay overnight. Other amenities include a private bath with whirlpool for mom, rocking chair, flat screen television and wi-fi. Take an online tour of our birthing center.
At first glance, the room may feel like a bedroom, but it is a state-of-the-art delivery room. All necessary tools and resources are within reach for our expert team of nurses and attending physicians. Should complications arise during delivery, resulting in the need for surgery, the surgical unit is just steps away.
We strongly encourage expecting moms and their partners to visit us prior to delivery and to take advantage of the education classes we provide before, during and after pregnancy. We also encourage you to complete a birth plan that you can share with staff, so we can work with you to create the birthing atmosphere and experience you prefer.
We know this can be an overwhelming time in one’s life. That’s why we have also created this simple checklist of what to bring to the Family Birthplace and what we provide.
