Maternity at SSM Health Waupun Memorial Hospital

Preparing for your baby and the changes he or she will bring is a big part of your pregnancy. There are times of excitement and times of overwhelming emotion. From family planning to ensuring a successful delivery, we take care of your pregnancy every step of the way at SSM Health Waupun Memorial Hospital.

Specialized Care for Mom and Baby

At SSM Health Waupun Memorial Hospital, there is no such thing as the best room because each room is state of the art. We’re proud to be serving your needs and helping you during this very special and important time. Built in 2017, the women and infants’ floor at SSM Health Waupun Memorial Hospital prides itself on the care that new mothers receive when admitted for labor and delivery.

Your stay begins in one of our spacious Family Birth Suites - a private, home-like setting where women are supported by nurses who specialize in labor and birth.

We offer in-room tubs, birthing balls and hands-on guidance to help you position your body to help ease discomfort. Our style of care means your birth experience can be tailored to include the wishes and traditions that are important to you.

Following the birth of your baby, you'll rest in one of our Family Care Suites. Our quiet, spa-like rooms accommodate both mom and her partner, and include a queen bed, in-room baby bathing area and massaging shower. We encourage parents to room-in with their baby 24/7 and provide breastfeeding support. Nurses who specialize in caring for moms and their newborns monitor recovery and support families through those important first few days together.

Our care approach allows your birthing experience to be tailored to your exact wishes and traditions. We offer many low-intervention options to support you during your labor, so speak with your labor and delivery nurse about your birthing preferences, including:

  • Room environment
  • Mobility
  • Visitors
  • Hydration
  • Aromatherapy
  • Monitoring
  • Pain relief options, including nitrous oxide
  • Cesarean section
  • Cord cutting
  • Feeding baby
  • Skin-to-skin contact
  • Circumcision

For low-risk patients, a laboring mom is not always confined to the bed. When appropriate, mom can wear a wireless fetal monitor or an intermittent monitor so she can walk around, try standing positions or even labor in a special laboring tub, or the shower or jetted tub in her room. This option supports movement during labor, which can increase comfort and speed progress.
