Labor and Delivery

Our Labor and Delivery's private spacious rooms are furnished in a peaceful setting and have all you need for a safe, comfortable delivery. Your personalized birth plan is encouraged and welcomed. TMC’s expert Labor and Delivery team works with you to ensure your needs are met during this exciting time.

All TMC Labor and Delivery nurses are trained in high-risk conditions and respond along with their medical colleagues to care for moms and babies during any circumstances that might arise.

NEW! All Private Postpartum Rooms

New moms can experience the luxury of brand new all private rooms. Embraced by the beautiful décor of larger rooms that better accommodate a growing family, moms will enjoy the warm, comfortable and quiet atmosphere that allows the bonding process to continue.  One nurse will care for both mom and baby during each shift of the hospital stay.

We know that a yearning for closeness is a natural instinct, and a physical and emotional need shared by mom and her baby. Babies are encouraged to “room in” with mom during the hospital stay. Studies support this best practice for baby and family.  As part of rooming-in, expert breastfeeding consultations and newborn-care education are delivered at the bed side by TMC’s caring and supportive staff.
