Birth Center

Restricted visiting guidelines due to flu

Effective Dec. 20, we have restricted visiting guidelines to protect all patients, visitors and staff due to influenza.

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 hardwood-style floors.

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.

Birth Center features

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.   

Cesarean birth

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 care. 

Tours and classes

Starting January 1, 2019, we will partner with Amma Parenting Center to offer pregnancy, parenting and newborn care classes to help you prepare for childbirth and healthy childhood development.

Amma teachers are current in the fields of obstetrics and perinatal education and strive to make classes fun and interactive.

Classes will be held at Amma designated locations throughout the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, not Regina Hospital. You can take a class at any location even if it's not in the city or site that you will have your baby. Online options are also available.
