Natural Childbirth Options
At Sky Ridge Medical Center’s Birth Place, we are family friendly, honoring choices because we want you to have the best birth experience possible. We have a caring team of experts who will treat you like family. Many of our nurses and doctors have had their babies right here at Sky Ridge because of the care they know they will receive.
As our physicians say, “I deliver at Sky Ridge because the team treat families and their pregnancies like a journey – before, during and after…they take every step into consideration, providing the best care!”
We know every parent-to-be is unique, which is why we individualize your birth experience and make it what you want it to be. Knowing that some families prefer a natural childbirth experience, we offer:
- A customized Birth Plan so you can tell us exactly how you want your day to go.
- A relaxing and welcoming environment with aromatherapy and candle light.
- Essential oils and soaking tubs for pre-birth relaxation.
- Mobile monitoring so you can walk, stand or try different positions.
- Birthing and peanut balls.
- Alternative pain relief with nitrous oxide, heat packs and cool, lavender or lemon towels.
- We work with award-winning doulas and offer a doula resource guide.
