Cincinnati (May 17, 2017) – Continuing its mission to improve the health of the community and to create patient value by providing exceptional outcomes, affordable care and the finest experiences, The Christ Hospital Health Network is announcing a family birthing center located in the comprehensive medical center being built in the fast-growing Butler County community of Liberty Township.
The state of the art Family Birthing Center will offer a boutique-like experience for expecting mothers and their families. The Family Birthing Center features large patient rooms which include a kitchenette and a family area, and allows for single room maternity care.
“Whether you are a new mom, or have had children before, the Family Birthing Center at The Christ Hospital Medical Center – Liberty Township is dedicated to providing the finest patient experiences for one of the most important moments of life,” said Robert Stephens, M.D., executive director of women’s health services at The Christ Hospital Health Network. “With more than 125 years of maternity care experience, we have a long standing tradition of providing exceptional maternity services to women in our region.”
The Family Birthing Center will include nine LDRPN (labor, delivery, recovery, post-partum and nursing) rooms, four private special care nursery rooms, and two dedicated cesarean section birthing rooms. The Christ Hospital Medical Center – Liberty Township will be home to the only cesarean section birth viewing room in the region, allowing families to be in the room with the mother during a planned cesarean section birth, with prior permission from the physician.
The Family Birthing Center is also offering support for mothers who want to pursue a natural childbirth, including hydrotherapy and extra-large showers with seats in patient rooms. The Christ Hospital also welcomes patients to bring a doula, also known as a birth companion or post-birth supporter, with them. Inpatient and outpatient lactation services are also offered.
