The day you’ve been preparing for and anticipating for the last nine months has finally arrived. While every woman’s experience with labor and delivery is different, and even each birth experience for the same woman is different, there are many things that you can expect to happen during your labor and delivery. All patients should report to the Labor and Delivery nurses’ station for labor, induction, or a scheduled c-section. You should only bring items needed for delivery; all other personal belongings may be brought in once you are admitted.
Parking is available for a fee in the Blue Parking Deck. Please note we do not validate parking. Valet parking is available for a fee during daytime hours at the Lipson Center entrance (on your right before you reach the Labor and Delivery entrance).
