Labor and Delivery Birth Center
Labor and Delivery Specialists
We support women through the birthing process with helping and skilled hands. All of our labor and delivery RNs are certified in fetal monitoring and neo-natal resuscitation. Nine are nationally certified in intra-partum care.
Our Birthing Center's nurse-patient ratio for delivering moms is one-to-one, so you always have your nurse's undivided attention. Athens Regional also maintains a 24-hour, on-site anesthesia staff member to attend to patient comfort issues during labor and delivery and be immediately available in the event of an emergency Caesarean section.
Birthing Facility Comfort
Our birthing facility offers maternity suites with state-of-the-art technology and an inviting aesthetic appeal. Each suite has deep, rich hardwood floors with matching wood cabinetry concealing necessary medical devices. A built-in sitting area in each room can be converted into a bed for a guest.
The suites feature an infant receiving area equipped to handle the unique needs of each baby as they transition into the world. Each private also features bedside fetal monitoring and clinical documentation systems.
