The Center offers three spacious, private laboring suites, private rooms for the postpartum period, HUGS infant security, Central Fetal Monitoring, staff in which are all AWHONN and NRP certified, electric breast pumps, and state of the art equipment to care for the newborns in which the Women Center is entrusted to care for.
“Our clinical and support staff are committed to creating a safe, welcoming and comfortable environment for moms and babies,” said Dr. Mousa. “It is one of our great privileges to help our community’s families welcome their newest additions in a positive and memorable way.”
Megan O’ Brien, Director of Women’s Services & Pediatrics at Logan Regional Medical Center said, “The New Year’s Baby is such a special delivery for our unit. The novelty of the New Year’s baby and what it represents runs parallel to what it is like to be a new mother: a new beginning and a precious new life. We are thankful to celebrate this special blessing with our newest mom, dad, and baby, and also extremely thankful to be able to celebrate with our community. Our community donors have went above and beyond to shower this family. Being able to show that our community is invested in our little ones is wonderful, after all they are the future of this area. Our hospital and the community are so supportive of our mothers and newborns and we are grateful to be attached to this special baby for many years to come!”
