East Alabama Medical Center’s Childbirth Unit welcomes about 1,700 little miracles into the world every year, and each and every one is special.
Located on the 3rd floor and renovated in 2007, the unit features eight childbirth suites, all with laminate hardwood floors, crown molding and armoires for a home-like feel. In addition, the unit has three observation suites as well as a spacious operating room for mothers requiring a Cesarean Section.
Services offered by the Childbirth Unit include antepartum testing, labor, delivery and immediate postpartum care, surgical services (Cesarean sections and immediate postpartum sterilizations) and post-anesthesia recovery.
After mom and baby have recovered in the Childbirth Unit, they are transferred to our Mother/Baby Unit (also on the 3rd floor) where they remain until discharge. EAMC provides the following services: basic newborn care, stabilization of ill newborns prior to transfer, and care of the stable pre-term infant. The devoted nurses in our Nursery are specially trained to provide quality, secure care to the "new additions" at EAMC.
