  • Mercy Gilbert's Lund Family Birth Center


    Our birthing teams will guide you every step of the way.

Family Birth Center


The Lund Family Birth Center at Mercy Gilbert supports the birth of your baby in comfortable surroundings with quality and compassionate care. Our team of birthing center doctors, midwives, nurse practitioners and specially trained labor and delivery nurses, postpartum care nurses, lactation consultants and nutritionists will guide you every step of the way.

Great Beginnings Start With Us

Mercy Gilbert's Lund Family Birth Center includes:

Labor, Delivery and Recovery 
Family Birth Center suites are generously sized and designed for your comfort and care during labor, delivery and recovery. Each suite features a multi-position birthing bed, private bathroom with a shower and state-of-the-art fetal monitoring system among other equipment necessary to provide quality care for you and your baby.  We also have labor tubs available upon request. The "Magical Moments" that immediately follows the birth of your baby is time to bond with your baby and recover from birth.

Nursery 
Our nursery's certification allows us to care for non-critical care babies 32 weeks gestation and older. The Birthing Center has neonatologists and neonatal nurse practitioners to care for newborns requiring extra monitoring. Sometimes babies need unforeseen extra care immediately after birth. Our sister hospital Chandler Regional has a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) to care for sick or premature babies.

Postpartum Care 
You and your baby will remain together as much as possible in your postpartum room after your recovery, as long as both of you are doing well. This promotes better bonding. Through the guidance of our skilled nurses and lactation consultants, you will learn to properly feed and care for your baby. If you had a healthy vaginal delivery, you can expect to take your baby home one to two days after birth.

Additional Birthing Center Features

  • Surgical suites specially designed for birth via Cesarean section.
  • Our Family Birth Center is a locked secure unit—matching armbands will be placed on you, your baby and your support person. Your baby will also wear an alarm activated ankle monitor.
  • Lactation and breastfeeding support while at the Birthing Center and resources for when you go home.
  • Private rooms with overnight sleeping accommodations for your support person.
  • Free Wi-Fi available in the Lund Family Birth Center and throughout the hospital.
  • Skylight TV network includes access to the Internet, video chat, games, movies, education videos. Resources to contact housekeeping and adjust room temperature from your TV are available.
  • Naptime everyday to allow uninterrupted rest and bonding with your baby.
  • Celebration afternoon tea and nutritious evening snack.

Feeding Your Baby

Most newborns are very sleepy the first 24 hours or so after birth. It is essential to wake your baby for feeding every two to three hours to ensure that he or she adjusts to the process and starts to eat. A feeding and changing log will be given to you in the hospital so you can track how much and how often your baby eats during the first few days to ensure proper nourishment. If you are breastfeeding, these frequent feedings are also the best way to encourage your milk to come in.
