Pregnancy and Childbirth

babyWhen you begin your new family at Lake Chelan Community Hospital, you become part of our family. To help make your baby’s birth a special event, we offer the following extras:

  • Remodeled birthing rooms
  • Family physician care
  • Baby book footprints
  • Mother/baby nurse throughout your stay
  • Baby bag with handmade quilt
  • Electric breast pumps for use in hospital

Childbirth Classes
We offer childbirth classes for new mothers and their partners. Classes include relaxing, breathing, medications and newborn baby care. Click here to view calendar.

Labor & Delivery
We combine personal attention only a smaller hospital can offer with quality medical care for you and your newborn. Our private birthing rooms have a homelike appearance, while being fully equipped medical units. A trained OB nurse is available 24 hours a day to provide care in prenatal testing, labor and deliver and OB emergencies. If a Cesarean birth is necessary, our surgical team is prepared to respond.

After delivery, mothers and babies stay together in one room so they can bond in a relaxed, quiet atmosphere. Most families stay for at least 24 hours. A mother/baby nurse is close by to help and answer any questions you may have during your stay.

Postpartum Support
To support new mothers, we provide a three-day postpartum evaluation by a nurse trained to perform hearing screenings and lactation consultation. We weigh the baby and address any problems or concerns the new parents may have.
