The Family Birth Place features 17 private LDRP (labor, delivery, recovery, post partum) suites and 1 overflow suite. They are designed to be state-of-the-art labor and delivery rooms, while at the same time offering pleasant, comfortable and convenient surroundings for the mother, baby and family after the birth. An International Board Certified Lactation Consultant sees most mothers and babies while in the hospital on Family Birth Place (Learn more about Breastfeeding Resources).
While the rooms are very attractive, they are also extremely functional, giving the family peace of mind. The high tech equipment and services that Port Huron Hospital is known for are there -- they just aren't as visible as they were in the past. And Port Huron Hospital continues to be the only hospital in the area that provides a special care nursery, located in the Family Birth Place, for babies who have special needs when they arrive.
Port Huron Hospital is working towards being a Michigan "Baby Friendly" Hospital.
We believe in family-centered care and in providing a safe and secure environment for you and your newborn.
To respect your privacy and comfort and to ensure safe care, we suggest no more than 3 family members/friends/support persons at your bedside at one time during labor, delivery, and through the first hour after delivery.
Family and friends are asked to ensure a clear path to the mother and baby at all times
Family and friends are welcome to provide emotional support to you (the patient) unless their presence infringes on other patient’s rights, compromises safety, and/or is medically or therapeutically contraindicated. Such times include:
During epidural procedures
During labor and the delivery
During the first hour of recovery after birth
Acheson Family Birth Place is a secured unit. Mom’s first and last name must be provided to enter the Family Birth Place.
Quiet time is observed between 8 p.m. and 10 a.m. to promote rest, healing and bonding.
Family and friends should not visit when respiratory viruses are common in the community.
