Expectant moms can tour many of the birthing areas at Children’s & Women’s Hospital at noon on Wednesdays as part of a pilot program to showcase all the hospital has to offer, from the most-advanced care to the amenities they would expect.
To better appreciate the leading-edge services and amenities offered for mothers delivering at Children’s & Women’s Hospital, tours at noon on Wednesdays have been established this summer as part of a pilot program.
The initiative was developed by Women’s Services in collaboration with USA Health Volunteer Services. A volunteer has led the once-a-week tours this summer that take expectant mothers and their partners through most of the areas they will experience when they deliver at Children’s & Women’s Hospital.
“We are excited to be able to offer this service to our patients and potential patients,” said Claudia Reed, D.N.P., C.R.N.P., nurse manager for labor and delivery and high-risk obstetrics. “We truly appreciate our volunteers who are helping expectant moms prepare for this step in their maternity journey.”
Tours typically last one hour and include stops at registration, labor and delivery, mother/baby, the nursery and high-risk obstetrics. Tours of postpartum rooms also are included.
