Frequently Asked Questions about delivering your baby at Providence Medical Center.

1. If I see Dr. Lang for my maternity care, will he deliver my baby?
In most cases, if you see Dr. Lang for your maternity care, he will deliver your baby. In the rare event that he is away, we make every effort to be sure you are aware of his plans, and are familiar with the obstetrician who performs deliveries when he is not available.

2. How often will I need to see the doctor during my pregnancy?
Initially, if you are healthy, you will see the doctor monthly for prenatal visits. As your pregnancy progresses, the doctor will see you more frequently, usually weekly at the end of your pregnancy. Frequent visits ensure you and your baby stay as healthy as possible for delivery.

3. Are the rooms at the Providence Medical Center private?
Absolutely. You will stay in one private room for labor, delivery and recovery. Our fully equipped rooms minimize having to change rooms. Each spacious room is equipped with special lighting and ceiling mirrors so you can see your baby being born. Afterwards, your baby can stay with you as much as you like.

4. Does the hospital have the technology needed to monitor my baby during labor?
Yes. Your baby is monitored throughout birth. A centralized fetal monitoring system lets nurses track your uterine contractions and fetal heart rate during labor and delivery.

5. Do your nurses specialize in taking care of mothers and babies?
You and your baby each receive specialized nursing care. Our highly experienced staff – one of the most experienced in the region – care for you and your baby as individuals. Your needs are different than your child's, so our nurses are assigned to your needs while our neonatal nurses care for your baby. That's not the case in some hospitals, where one nurse attends to one room. Experienced moms and dads appreciate the value of the special attention our nursing staff delivers.

6. What kinds of security safeguards are in place to protect my baby?
Our staff and security team continually monitor arrivals and departures. A staff member or volunteer must release the door for visitors to arrive or depart. We also put matching identification bracelets on you, your infant and the child's father or your significant other at the time of your child's birth.

7. Does the hospital offer prepared childbirth classes?
Education and support give you a head start on parenting. To help families start out on the right foot, Providence offers parents education and support that begins with classes on labor and delivery and continues with special assistance in caring for your newborn.

8. What happens if there are complications with my baby during delivery?
We have a Special Care Nursery staffed with certified, neonatal nurse practitioners, who bring a high level of expertise 24 hours a day to assist newborns. They have years of experience in caring for high-risk newborns, developing individual treatment plans and working alongside neonatologists, pediatricians and family practitioners to care for patients. Our partnership with Children's Mercy Kansas City offers added support. Neonatologists from Children's Mercy consult with our staff on treatment options. When infants require medical intervention, such as surgery or ventilation, we transport them to Children's Mercy.
