Private Birthing Suites

SSM Health Monroe Hospital's Family Birth Suites features labor, delivery, recovery, postpartum rooms (LDRP) with soft lighting, adjustable bed, whirlpool tub, flat screen TV and comfortable sleeping for family members. A unique green environment with roof-top gardens and natural light embodies SSM Health's healing mission. These features are proven to aid in recovery to help you get home sooner.

Secure Unit

With the safety and security of our moms and their babies a top priority, our Family Birth Suites is a securely locked unit. The security works in two ways: first, all visitors must request entry through an intercom system with the nurses desk. Second, each mom and baby have an alert bracelet while staying with us. If an infant is removed from the area wearing the bracelet, staff is notified and additional safety measures are enforced to bring the baby back to the unit safely.

Your New Addition

Our staff not only focuses their care on your health, but also your infant’s. Our Family Birth Suites is home to a cesarean surgical unit and level II nursery, which means we can offer care in incubators, provide oxygen therapy and address newborn feeding problems if necessary.

SSM Health Monroe Hospital also features Fetal Telemetry, which allows expectant mothers more freedom to move around during labor, which often speeds up delivery and eases a mother's discomfort. Back at the nurse's station, the baby's heartbeat is continuously monitored. If the baby is in distress, the system alarms anywhere on the floor.

After Delivery

SSM Health's care doesn’t stop after leaving the hospital. We offer classes on baby safety, along with specialists in postpartum depression and pediatric & family medicine to make sure you and your baby get off to a healthy, happy start.
