Child Birth and our Women and Infants Center

St. Anthony's Women and Infants Center offers a comfortable and relaxed setting for the birth of your baby. Our labor and delivery rooms offer the most comfort, privacy, and safety possible to our new mothers and their newborns. And after a short recovery time, you are moved to a private room with its own private bathroom with a sit-down shower. Our private rooms give you a quiet place for your family to enjoy the celebration of your newborn’s arrival.

Nitrous Oxide Pain Management

We additionally offer a nitrous oxide pain management program as an alternative to an epidural and IV pain medications. Expectant mothers like using Nitronox because it does not require IV access and is self-administered, empowering them to safely and effectively help manage the discomfort of labor and post-birth procedures while remaining alert and conscious. Plus, it can be quickly eliminated from the body so it does not affect the baby's central nervous system or breathing and has not been shown to alter or slow the labor process.
 

HSHS St. Anthony's is a designated Baby-Friendly hospital

Baby-FriendlyBaby-Friendly USA, Inc. is the U.S. authority for the implementation of the Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative (“BFHI”), a global program sponsored by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). The initiative encourages and recognizes hospitals and birthing centers that offer an optimal level of care for breastfeeding mothers and their babies.

 

Celebrating the Joy


St. Anthony's Women and Infants Center enjoys celebrating the joy of new life brought into the world, and now wants to share it with people in the hospital.

A few moments of Brahms' lullaby are played hospital-wide when the miracle of birth happens at St. Anthony’s, which is several times a day.
