Contact: The Obstetrics Department
Hours: Our obstetrics unit is staffed 24/7
The Obstetrics Department at Sweetwater Memorial strives to provide a patient- and family centered environment for the birthing mother and family as they welcome the birth of a new loved one. Our friendly and caring nurses are here to support and assist each patient through an individualized birthing process. Our welcoming unit features all-private and spacious rooms, in which our patients and their families can relax and recover in comfort. Our staff's priority is to care for you and your newborn all while keeping this unit a secure environment and family centered space.
The choice of care options for the mother includes a variety of services. These include a natural birth, pain control and epidurals which are available to those who want them 24 hours a day, and surgical intervention as needed. We have a certified lactation counselor available for anyone needing breast-feeding assistance. Childbirth classes are offered for the preparation of the birth. Other referrals can be made for community services when discharged.
