You and Baby, Off to a Healthy Start
Having a baby is a life-changing moment for parents, and that moment is also important to the staff at the Susan B. Allen Memorial Hospital Family Birth Center. Here, staff members enjoy the opportunity to build relationships with expectant mothers from the moment they arrive until their little ones are born.
The Birth Center was designed with the patient and the patient's family in mind. Birthing suites are large and beautifully decorated, with whirlpool bathtubs in each suite. Post-partum rooms are spacious and comfortable, each with whirlpool tubs and other comforts of home.
Our staff of highly trained physicians and nurses strive to provide technically advanced service, along with that personal touch you've come to expect.
Let us make this family experience one that you will never forget. If you would like to schedule a visit to our facility and look at the services we provide, please call us at 316.322.4536.
FREE Childbirth Education Classes
The Susan B. Allen Family Birth Center staff offers Childbirth Education classes at no cost to patients. The class is offered to any expecting Mom, whether she plans to deliver at Susan B. Allen or another facility.
The classes have been designed to provide the new Mom-to-be and her significant other (or coach) information about labor and delivery, comfort measures, pain management, newborn care, recovery and discharge.
The class gives the participants information about the entire process of delivering at Susan B. Allen. It provides an opportunity for patients to learn what to expectbe and to feel comfortable with the serivces and facility, and be able to ask questions in a comfortable, non-threatening environment.
The classes are being held on Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. in the Wiedemann Health Education Center on the Susan B. Allen campus, and a light sandwich lunch is served. It is recommended that patients sign up for the class by the 34th week of pregnancy, if possible, and can do so by calling the SBA Family Birth Center at 316.322.4536.
Susan B. Allen’s ability to offer these classes at no cost has been made possible through funding provided by the SBAMH Foundation.
