Family Maternity Unit
Delivering Miracles Everyday
Whether you are expecting your first child, or an additional one—bringing a child into the world is a wonderful experience. At Grant Memorial Hospital, our compassionate and experienced staff is committed to creating a comfortable environment for you to welcome your new addition.
Grant’s Family Maternity Unit features private and semi-private rooms, which include low lighting, television, Wi-Fi, and all the necessary monitoring equipment. The staff is dedicated to providing you with the exceptional medical care you deserve in the comfortable and secure birthing environment that you need.
Our nursing staff and obstetricians are certified in AWHONN fetal monitoring, perinatal continuing education, and are certified in neonatal resuscitation. Our experienced nursing staff and physicians guide women through the birth experience with personalized care. The family-centered care at our hospital allows you to keep your baby with you in your room. Our staff will support, teach, demonstrate and help you and your family learn more about caring for your newborn.
Childbirth Education Classes
When it is time to prepare for the birth of your baby, consider taking childbirth classes. You will learn simple and safe techniques to promote comfort during pregnancy, labor and postpartum. A tour of the Family Maternity Unit is included with the classes. Classes are held in 3 bi-weekly sessions. For more information or to register call 1-304-257-1026 ext. 2799.
Visits from family members and special friends can be a meaningful part of your experience. Visiting hours are from 10:00am-8:00pm to allow for you to rest and learn about caring for yourself and your baby. Due to the frequency of childhood illnesses, children 12 and under are not allowed to visit unless they are a sibling to the baby. We encourage all visitors to wash their hands before holding the baby. The visitation guidelines are subject to change during influenza season.
