Comfort During Delivery

Our labor and delivery rooms afford families the utmost privacy and comfort. Just steps away from the nurses' stations, we've given a home-like feel to the labor, delivery and recovery rooms. These spacious rooms are also equipped with state-of-the-art medical equipment for a safe delivery and include a dedicated cesarean-section room. After recovery, mothers enjoy private patient rooms where they and their baby receive the highest quality of care.

Infirmary Health Partners with March of Dimes on the National 39 Weeks Campaign.

Don't rush your baby's birthday. More and more births are being scheduled a little early. Experts are learning that this can cause problems. If possible, it's best to stay pregnant for at least 39 weeks. If your pregnancy is healthy, wait for labor to begin on its own. Infirmary Health is currently one of 100 hospitals in the country and the only healthcare system in the state of Alabama to adopt the March of Dimes 39 Weeks initiative. Click here to learn more about the March of Dimes "Healthy Babies are Worth the Wait" campaign.
