It's spacious and beautifully decorated. The Labor, Delivery, Recovery, and Postpartum (LDRP) Rooms at the Mercer Health Birthing Center are state-of-the-art and provide a homelike atmosphere for the mother, baby and family members.
According to the Director of Maternal Services, Connie Paulus, RN., much planning went into making the center the premier showplace that it is today. She says, "We looked at a number of facilities before designing our facility. We wanted to admit the mother into a place where she could be with her baby the entire length of her stay."
We have placed an emphasis on creating a homelike atmosphere for the birthing experience. Every LDRP room has a comfortable recliner or sleep chair and a rocking chair. Private showers are available in each room to help the mother relax before, during and after delivery.
Every LDRP Room is large and spacious enough so that the entire family can come and welcome the newborn after birth. Connie says, "We place a strong emphasis on allowing the family to get acquainted soon after the baby is born. In most cases, the baby can stay right with the mother in a special crib beside the mother's bed. Of course, our staff is always there to assist the new mother and can take the baby to our modern nursery whenever the need arises."
Mercer Health Birthing Center is all about choices. Every one of our LDRP rooms is equipped with beds that adjust to a variety of birthing positions. In addition to the five LDRP rooms, we also offer two private rooms and one semi-private room for those who have their birth via c-section, who have pregnancy complications, or for women in the hospital for GYN surgery.
Mercer Health was among the first hospitals to bring the LDRP concept to the west central Ohio area and was among the leaders in bringing the LDRP concept to this area.
Mercer Health is more than just a beautiful setting in which to have a baby. This Center also offers many support programs given by trained professionals before, during, and after the birth.
We offer a wide range of services at a competitive cost, compared to other area hospitals.
Our staff Is Dedicated to providing expert, compassionate care. We are in tune to the mother's needs, wishes, and choices. We consider it an honor to share one of the most precious experiences of a person's life.
