Labor and Delivery – Your Birth Experience

When the big day finally arrives, The Birth Place is committed to providing you with the birth experience you always imagined. With safety as our top priority, our staff will guide you through this truly remarkable and memorable event.

What To Expect During Labor

If you have labor signs or symptoms, please call our OB nursing staff at (715) 483-0576. They will assess you over the phone and may instruct you to come to The Birth Place at St. Croix Health.

If you are in labor, you will be admitted to a private labor and delivery suite.

The progress of your labor will be monitored in the labor and delivery room using continuous or intermittent electronic fetal monitoring.

If you would like pain relief, an anesthetist is always on call. If you prefer an un-medicated delivery, your nurse and physician or midwife will assist you — providing both experienced coaching and helping you to be as comfortable as possible during labor and delivery.

Neonatal Virtual Care

When something unexpected happens to your baby, it feels like the world comes to a halt. Through a new virtual care partnership, physicians at St. Croix Health now have enhanced 24/7 access to Children’s neonatal care specialists. Using audio/video technology, St. Croix Health physicians can hold a virtual consultation with a neonatal clinician from the Children’s Hospital in Minnesota. From there, clinicians from both systems collaborate on the care management of newborns requiring acute stabilization after birth and determine whether the baby needs to be transferred another facility for further care.

When deemed appropriate, the St. Croix Health physician places a call to Children’s Minnesota and requests a virtual consultation. Within minutes, a neonatal specialist from Children’s will connect via an audio/ video conference with the provider and care team. There is no extra cost to the patient’s family.

Assuming there are no medical complications, mothers and babies stay together from the moment of birth. All newborn exams are done at the mother’s bedside.
