Designed with comfort and convenience in mind for you, your family and visitors, the Family Birth Center offers many services and amenities:
The Obstetrics & Gynecology clinic is directly connected to the Family Birth Center. In the event of an emergency in the clinic, women can be transported immediately to the hospital, saving valuable time.
Four private labor/delivery/recovery/postpartum rooms allow you to labor, deliver and recover in one room for your entire stay. They offer a homelike atmosphere that combines the highest level of comfort with advanced obstetrical equipment and technology, including an infant assessment and resuscitation area. Each room has a convertible couch for your support person to spend the night, and plenty of space for loved ones who wish to be with you during labor and/or delivery or to visit with you after. Enjoy the whirlpool spa and shower during labor or after baby is born.
Level II Special Care Nursery
Our state-of-the-art Special Care Nursery is available on-site in Eau Claire. Staffed by highly trained, experienced nurses, babies that need a higher level of care can receive it here when needed. Babies born at Mayo Clinic Health System locations in Barron and Menomonie needing Level II care are transferred to this nursery for a seamless transition of care.
Family Waiting Room
A comfortable waiting room with large windows is available for family and friends who are not in the room with you during labor. It also provides a welcome place for dads, children, grandparents and other visitors to sit if you need to take a break or rest.
To provide the safest environment for your new bundle of joy, the Family Birth Center is a locked unit. Upon arrival to the unit, visitors should push the button/pick up the phone to be granted access.
