Obstetrics & NurseryOne of the most rewarding parts of our lives is bringing new life into the world. That is why an important part of Antelope Memorial Hospital is our labor and delivery unit. We make pregnancy and birth an experience the entire family can enjoy. We provide a caring, attentive staff, with the highest priority placed on the health of you and your baby. Babies are cared for in a well-equipped nursery that is staffed 24 hours a day with nurses that have been trained to care for the newborn immediately after delivery and during the hospitalization. Mothers also have the option of rooming in with their baby in their rooms. Our excellent providers and obstetric nurses have special training and certifications for caring for mom and newborn.
After delivery, the mother and an individual of her choice, are treated to a special steak dinner in the comfort of their private room or in a room set up to celebrate the event. Antelope Memorial Hospital is partnered with the Briggs and Barrett Project in providing Halo Sleep Sacks and Sleep Baby Safe and Snug books to take home to all mothers. All mothers will receive a diaper bag filled with goodies for the newborn.
