Regina Hospital's Birth Center is designed to make the
delivery of your baby a joyful occasion. Located on the main floor at Regina
Hospital, and overlooking the Mississippi River bluffs, the department includes
spacious rooms with private bathrooms that include oversized bathtubs and
showers. All of the rooms are beautifully decorated with soothing colors and
Accents include coordinating wallpaper and window
treatments and ceramic tiled bathrooms. Additional room amenities include a
refrigerator and hair dryer. A snack bar is conveniently located within the
unit, just steps from each patient room.
All stages of childbirth occur in a private LDRP room
(labor, delivery, recovery and post-partum) that is designed to accommodate
fathers, family, friends and whomever is significant in the life of the mother
and the new baby. The attractive cherry wood cabinets discreetly hide the
presence of the technology available. Each room includes accommodations for
fathers to stay overnight. Mothers can choose to keep their baby with them in
the room during their stay, or can opt to place the baby in the care of the
nursing staff in the nursery.
The Birth Center includes an inventory of
equipment including fetal monitors, infant warmers and specially designed
birthing beds. Enhanced infant security is also an important part of the design.
Video cameras and secured entrances are part of the plan to ensure safety.
In the event of a Cesarean
Section delivery, double doors are the only separation between the Birth Center and surgery department. After giving birth, and after the mother
recovers from surgery, mother and baby return to the Birth Center for
this is your first baby or you are welcoming another addition to your family,
you will find our classes helpful. Our classes are taught by Allina Health
Parent Educators who are committed to prepare you for the birth experience. Our
classes are offered to meet your needs, with weekday classes held in the
evening or weekend classes.
