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.
Our Labor Nurses are highly skilled, and are required to obtain / maintain the following certifications:
Neonatal Resuscitation (NRP)
Advanced Fetal Monitoring
STABLE (Newborn Transport)
In addition to these requirements, our Nurses are trained in all aspects of mother-baby care including labor, delivery, postpartum, breastfeeding and newborn care. We provide professional nursing care with a personal touch in a relaxed, home-like environment!
If you would like to tour our Labor & Delivery department, please call 841-6202 for an appointment.
We want your time in our Labor & Delivery department to be warm and welcoming. We also want to celebrate you and your new baby. As part of that celebration we have a wonderful tradition here at FMC that celebrates our new moms and a guest with a special dinner after your baby is born.
Our Celebration Dinner for two includes the choice of several entrees as well as sparkling cider to share with a special someone.
As a special way to commemorate the birth of your child, the Fairchild Medical Center Foundation offers our families the opportunity to purchase a commemorative package as part of the Footprints to the Future program. Your child's footprint will be placed on our Footprints to the Future wall inside the hospital and you may select from a variety of footprint packages to purchase.
Fairchild Medical Center provides free health information to our community through a program called Advice Nurse.
Through Advice Nurse you may receive information about an illness or health care concern. We hope you find this service helpful.
