Our Labor & Delivery Team is Here to Care for You and Your Baby

Thank you for choosing Fairchild Medical Center for the delivery of your baby. Childbirth is a very special time, and Fairchild Medical Center’s Labor & Delivery department is proud to be a part of your birth. We recently renovated our OB birthing unit to all private suites. Each tastefully decorated suite is equipped with a modern birthing bed, private bath, blue tooth speaker, and sleeping facilities for your birthing partner. 

Many women find that a warm shower or whirlpool bath can help labor progress. We also encourage walking or the use of the birthing ball. Please, bring your focal point, favorite music, massage oil, essential oils, or other comfort items that might help you relax during your labor.

You may wish to have an all-natural labor or you may wish to utilize the options of Nitrous Oxide, IV pain therapy, or Epidural. Please talk to your care-provider about your birth plan.

FMC’s newborn nursery provides level one care. This means that our nurses are trained in neonatal care and can provide for any newborn needing oxygen or IV therapy. We work closely with Rogue Regional Medical Center NICU in Medford should baby need neonatal intensive care.
