Private. Comfortable. Secure.
From our 100% private rooms to room service for your meals, you’ll experience the many differences that make Lakeview Medical Center the very best place for your delivery.
We understand that connecting with your family and friends is very important to you. This is why Lakeview Medical Center now offers public high-speed Internet access. Please bring your personal laptop with wireless Internet (WiFi) adapter. In addition, cell phones are permitted in the Birth Center area.
After your baby is born, we employ key security measures to ensure the safety of your growing family. A band is placed on every infant’s leg that activates a security system if the child is taken off the floor. The safety of you and your baby is our primary concern.
For Your New Baby
Family Centered Cesarean Section
Lakeview Medical Center offers gentle cesarean sections to eligible parents to make the birthing experience a unique and wonderful experience for you.
In a gentle cesarean section, the newborn is delivered and placed on the mother's chest (skin-to-skin). The mother’s temperature will adjust to keep the newborn warm. This time promotes bonding between mom and babe, and breastfeeding can be initiated early. The newborn will remain skin-to-skin with mom in the operating room and in the recovery room. Mom and babe are not separated. Please ask your OB provider or call the Women’s Health department at Lakeview Medical Center if you have further questions.
Visitors are welcome to join you in your room after delivery and share in the joy of your newborn. We do encourage you to remember that your body needs to recover and your baby needs time to bond with you too, so keeping visits short is recommended.
After your stay at Lakeview Medical Center is complete, we’re still working to make certain you’re getting the care that you need. You will get a friendly call from one of our staff to follow up with you and the baby.
