Gentle Cesarean Sections
Our surgical delivery operating room is fully-equipped, state-of-the-art, and within steps of the labor & delivery area. We offer "Gentle C-Sections" where parents are encouraged to be active participants in the birthing process. We use a clear surgical drape during the procedure which allows parents to watch the baby being born, see the baby’s first facial expression, and witness the baby’s first breath. Mom and baby will be able to experience skin-to-skin contact immediately after delivery and begin breast feeding during recovery. An additional feature is the ability to play music during the procedure, adding up to a customized experience for mom, dad and baby. After the delivery, mothers are typically walking soon after delivery, and able to eat the same day.
