Obstetrical Care at Forbes Hospital
For nearly 40 years, more than a thousand mothers each year have entrusted Forbes Hospital of Allegheny Health Network with their obstetrical care.
In our 11 elegant and modern labor and delivery suites, mothers are surrounded in comfort — including the peace of mind of state-of-the-art care. Here, you’ll find the expertise of trusted obstetricians, high-risk specialists, neonatologists and pediatricians. And, behind the comforts of your suite is everything your doctors will need for your delivery — from advanced fetal monitors to anesthesia. This means your experience -- from labor to delivery to bonding with your baby – all occur in the same quiet, comfortable room.
You’ll also enjoy the reassurance of seeing the same friendly faces throughout your stay. With our Mother/baby nursing care, a team of nurses is dedicated to you and your baby through delivery.
Once your baby is born, you’ll have the support you need to successfully breast feed your baby. Our lactation consultants are here before delivery with pre-natal education classes and they see every mom during the hospital stay. Once you and your baby are home, they’re available for consultation.
Should you need specialized care, dedicated C-section rooms equipped with the latest technology are just down the hall. If your baby needs special attention, our advanced Level II continuing care nursery is right on your floor. And for the most urgent situations, Forbes Hospital provides immediate access to the maternal-fetal medicine and Level III neonatal intensive care unit of Allegheny Health Network.
What makes the best care even better is that our labor and delivery suites provide home-away- from home comforts. Rocking chairs and sleeper sofas. HDTV, DVD and Wi-Fi. Adjustable lighting and temperature. And a dining area where your family can enjoy room service and a celebratory dinner. There’s even a Jacuzzi to help relieve labor pains. And a comfortable family area is just down the hall.
At Forbes Hospital, it’s how we’re making sure that the day your baby is born is picture perfect. And close to home.
