The birth of your baby is one of the most exciting experiences of your life. The New Beginnings unit of Mosaic Life Care at St. Joseph - Medical Center makes this experience a true joy.
For starters, the combined labor/delivery/recovery/post-partum (LDRP) rooms at New Beginnings offer a beautiful and functional setting for the birth of your child. The maternity area includes 18 LDRP rooms. These rooms allow you to go through Labor, Delivery, Recovery and Post-Partum care in the comfort and convenience of one spacious room. The staff of registered nurses is Neonatal Resuscitation Certified, holding high levels of experience and expertise in maternity care. All Nursery nurses are STABLE trained.
We also have three Certified Nurse Midwives on staff to complement our staff of doctors.
We provide personalized, customized care, supporting the wishes of each of our patients.
We offer lactation support and provide two breastfeeding support groups every week. We also offer a variety of classes including pre-natal, infant CPR and a sibling class.
Patients have the opportunity for a complete tour of the Maternity Unit during their pre-registration appointment.
Monitor and security systems ensure that you and your child receive the benefits of the best and newest technologies.
Maternity provides services for normal and high risk pregnancies. All deliveries are performed by medical doctors (MDs), and a physician is on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) provides a high level of care for babies who have complications at the beginning of life. We partner with Children’s Mercy Kansas City, which staffs neonatal nurse practitioners on-site 24/7. This also means if your child needs extra care, we have direct access to Children’s Mercy pediatric specialty services in Kansas City like surgery, radiology, pathology and more.
For mothers with special needs, the maternity team provides:
- Antepartum Testing
- Post Partum Tubal Ligations
- Cesarean Sections
Note: Post Partum Tubal Ligations and D&C's are offered and performed at the Mosaic Life Care Medical Center but are not performed in the Maternity Unit.
These surgical procedures are provided within the Maternity unit.
