Women’s Health

RMCHCS understands the healthcare needs of women and takes a personal interest in preventative healthcare throughout their lifetime.

Labor & Delivery

RMCHCS Labor and Delivery unit provides a home-like atmosphere with up-to-date technology so expectant moms will feel comfortable and safe. Highly skilled and certified nurses provide the expertise in prenatal and infant care needed to ensure that new moms and their babies are in good health and will thrive together.

Postpartum Care

Following delivery, new moms are moved to the postpartum section in Women’s Health, which is staffed by an excellent team of trained postpartum nurses.

Lactation

RMCHCS encourages breastfeeding. Experienced lactation consultants understand that breastfeeding is a new and sometimes challenging experience for mom and baby. During their hospital stay, new moms work with trained postpartum nurses and certified lactation specialists help make sure they are comfortable and confident with breastfeeding their newborn. Breastfeeding moms are encouraged to have baby in the room with them to allow that special bond to flourish.

RMCHCS offers a monthly breastfeeding support group that meets in the Hospital library, located on the 2nd floor, the first Tuesday of every month.
