What to expect in the birthing unit

Each of the birthing suites is equipped with:

  • A modern birthing bed
  • A whirlpool tub to labor in
  • State-of-the-art technology designed to keep mother and baby safe
  • A sleep sofa for the labor partner
  • A 27” flat panel television with DVD/CD player
  • Wireless internet access
  • Large windows to allow lots of natural light into the suite
  • Small refrigerator for personal use

Mercy also provides dedicated Cesarean section rooms with private recovery areas for post-surgery and two spacious waiting rooms for friends and family.

Families delivering at Mercy will move from the birthing unit to a recovery suite just steps away after they deliver and have bonded with their newest little one.
