During Your Stay

  • Labor and Delivery – We want to make your family celebration memorable. We encourage you to share your birthing plan with your nurse to ensure your experience meets your expectations.
  • Nursing Care –Your nurse will be with you and your baby before, during and after delivery and will serve as your personal link to information, education, and comfort. Your care will be customized for you based on your choices and preferences.
  • Education – Because these first days are a time of learning for new parents, your nurse will provide one-to-one teaching for you. The Newborn Channel (Channel 14 on the in-room televisions) provides 24-hour education.
  • Baby Photos – Your baby’s picture will be taken as a part of our hospital security plan. You will be given the digital disc containing pictures of your baby to take home. You can have your baby dressed in a special outfit for this portrait if you wish. Newborn photos are posted to our online nursery with parental consent.
  • Lactation Services & Breastfeeding Warm Line – Certified lactation consultants are available daily to help you and your baby get a good start with breastfeeding, and the consultants can meet with nursing moms after discharge for ongoing support. Our Breastfeeding “Warm Line” at 715-847-2910 or Toll-free 866-227-0105 connects you with support anytime day or night.
  • Newborn Hearing Screening – All newborns are screened for hearing problems free of charge before going home. This is to identify and address any potential hearing issues right away. Babies needing further assessment will be referred to an audiologist (hearing specialist) for follow-up.
