The Women’s Care Center here at Baptist Health Richmond has made some recent updates to our look. Our labor hall has gotten a fresh facelift. It’s provided a brighter, more inviting atmosphere for our patients and our families as they come in.
In our Mother-Baby Care wing, our rooms have been renovated to provide more comfortable, more functional furnishings for our patients. Our goal from the time a mother walks in on our unit is to prepare her for that transition into parenthood and to prepare her family as well. The services we offer are very helpful for her in making that transition. We try to keep them together so they have the opportunity to observe and ask questions of our nursing staff.
Items like medications and breast pumps, they are now available to be delivered right at the bedside before the patient is discharged, so she doesn’t have to worry about walking into a pharmacy or walking into a retail store with her brand-new baby after she’s just left the hospital.
Our nurses are passionate about taking care of moms and babies and ensuring that they are ready to take those babies home with them and provide the best life possible for those kids.
