The Telfair BirthPlace provides experienced obstetric specialists for comprehensive and specialty care of both mother and child. Our board-certified OB/GYN physicians provide advanced care for comprehensive pregnancy care, including prenatal, childbirth and postnatal care. We provide the most sophisticated medical technology and equipment available with private maternity care rooms. Each room is tastefully decorated in relaxing, home-like settings.
The relaxing, home-like rooms are tastefully decorated with the most sophisticated medical equipment available. Labor and delivery take place in a private room staffed by nurses expertly trained in delivery. In the event of a Cesarean section (C-section), dedicated operating suites staffed by experienced surgical teams are in the same unit. Not only are there dedicated operating suites, the Telfair BirthPlace features dedicated anesthesiologists.
After delivery, the new mother and infant are transferred to a private Mother/Baby room. Accommodations are made for one support person to spend the night in the mom's room, but all other family members and friends must plan for sleeping arrangements outside of the hospital.
Frequently Asked Questions
Will my baby be able to stay in my room after delivery?
Yes. Your baby will go to your room and the same nurse will care for both of you.
When may I have an epidural?
The timing of the epidural is up to you and your doctor.
May I eat during labor?
You may have liquids (ice, PopsiclesTM, soda, tea, fruit juice, etc.).
Why do I need an IV?
An IV is a route for fluid to help prevent dehydration during labor. We also use an IV to administer pain medication and antibiotics.
May I bring music?
Certainly. You are also welcome to bring your own CD player or radio.
Can my family stay in the labor room?
A support person and two visitors may stay with you during labor and birth. One family member may accompany you and provide support during a C-section.
