Labor & Delivery Team: Experience and Expertise
St. Rose Dominican has one of the most experienced and skilled teams in Nevada. Our mother and baby teams consist of:
- Laborists - Laborists are board certified obstetricians who are available around-the-clock in our Birth Centers. They can examine soon-to-be-moms, evaluate the progress of labor, and provide a safe delivery if your physician is unavailable or delayed.
- Maternal fetal medicine specialists
- Nurses with 20 hours of breastfeeding education through the International Lactation Consultant Association (ILCA)
- Lactation consultants, counselors and educators
- Obstetrical surgeons
- Obstetrical anesthesiologists
- "Scrub techs," health care professionals who specialize in surgical support
Nearly a dozen of our nurses are International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLCs), while more than two dozen nurses are Certified Lactation Counselors/Certified Lactation Educators (CLCs/CLEs) through the ILCA. This certification means they can offer exceptional breastfeeding support to new moms. In addition, you can feel confident that even when your doctor is not currently in the hospital, he or she is monitoring your baby's progress via their mobile device. This way, your doctor receives constant updates about your care.
St. Rose Dominican's San Martín and Siena Campuses are the first Baby-Friendly Hospitals in southern Nevada. The designation is earned through the Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative (BFHI), a global initiative of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF). As part of this commitment to infant care, we:
- Encourage immediate skin-to-skin contact between mother and child
- Help initiate breastfeeding within the first hour of life, if the mother chooses to breastfeed
- Provide intensive breastfeeding training to our entire labor and delivery staff, including doctors, lactation specialists and labor and delivery nurses
