Labor and Delivery
There are many reasons why some 700 women a year deliver their babies in Memorial Medical Center's Mary C. Dyster Women's Pavilion.
Women admitted to the pavilion for inpatient care are given private accommodations with their own bathroom, shower and cable TV.
Receiving early and ongoing care is essential to the health of you and your baby. Our team is there to provide the best care before, during and after your pregnancy
More women choose to have their babies at Memorial Medical Center, where they can enjoy the many amenities we offer, than at any other Niagara County hospital.
We're big believers in wellness education, too. At the Mary C. Dyster Women's Pavilion, we offer classes in prenatal care, birthing, breastfeeding, parenting and more.
Our new CenteringPregnancy Program for mothers to be is a new way of delivering quality prenatal care by bringing women together in groups. The group medical visits provide strengths-based, interactive, prenatal care.
- Our beautifully decorated suites offer private homelike, accommodations for labor, delivery and recovery all in one room. Each private room has a shower, rocking chair, sleep chair, bassinet and flat screen TV as well as advanced monitoring systems for mom and baby.
- Rooming in with Mom is encouraged whenever possible to enhance bonding and to give parents a chance to become comfortable caring for their newborns.
- Registered nurses on our maternity floor are specially trained to care for moms and babies before and after delivery and are certified in neonatal resuscitation procedures.
- Our expanded nursery is fully equipped to provide care for both well babies and babies who need extra medical attention.
Our comprehensive lactation program includes LaLeche League breastfeeding and personal breastfeeding assistance during your childbirth stay and follow-up consultation after you return home. For more information contact the NFMMC lactation consultant.
