Our private labor, delivery and recovery rooms provide a calm and comforting environment for your delivery. After your baby is born, you’ll move to a private mother-baby room. Specialized nurses will care for you and your baby, answer any questions, provide education and connect you with any needed resources.
We aim to meet your birth plan expectations and encourage you to communicate your desires with our staff. From traditional labor and delivery to natural childbirth and cesarean section, Anderson’s highly trained OB-GYN physicians, midwives, nurses and support staff are ready to share in the delivery of your miracle.
Our fully staffed Well-Baby Nursery provides care for your healthy newborn. Every newborn is fully evaluated daily by our team of Neonatologists, Neonatal Nurse Practitioners and Neonatal Nurses. If any unexpected complications occur, our Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) has the staff and equipment needed to provide the best care your baby needs.
Anderson Regional Birth Center offers a safe, nurturing environment for your maternity stay. We take the security of our smallest patients very seriously. Our Nursery Unit is a locked unit where only designated personnel can gain access using ID swipe cards.
Please refer to the Visitor Guidelines for current guidelines.
At Anderson Regional Birth Center, we encourage and support skin-to-skin contact— it is the best beginning for both you and your baby.
Research shows that skin-to-skin contact immediately after birth and in the newborn period is very beneficial for both mom and baby. Some of these advantages include:
At birth — if conditions allow — your baby will be placed directly on your chest immediately after delivery. We will place a blanket and/or towel over the baby to keep the baby warm as you enjoy your first precious moments together. Skin-to-skin contact is recommended for at least one hour after birth.
Depending on the condition of the mother and/or baby at the time of birth, skin-to skin contact may not be possible. However, skin-to-skin contact is beneficial at any time during the early newborn period, even after you leave the hospital.
Please check in at the Admissions Desk near the Emergency Waiting Area when you arrive at the hospital.
