Providing Generations of Care
Our Care Team gets rave reviews from former patients, who frequently use words like friendly, compassionate, great, wonderful and accommodating to describe us. At LMH, we know our patients value their relationships with trusted nurses, doctors, certified nurse midwives and staff, and we provide personalized, one-to-one nursing care. Currently, our staff averages 13 years of health care experience and nine years of service at LMH. You can count on us to provide knowledgeable, compassionate care.
Labor and Delivery Nurses
For you and your baby’s safety, our Labor and Delivery (L&D) nurses are certified in fetal monitoring and PROMPT. Every woman who delivers here gets personalized care from her own L&D nurse (we have a one-to-one nurse-patient ratio), and many of our patients have the same nurse for all their deliveries at LMH.
After the birth of your new family member, you and your baby will be cared for by our trained team of Obstetric (OB) nurses. Our OB nurses are certified in Basic Life Support (BLS), Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP), STABLE and PROMPT.
Our International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLC) offer you support to ensure a positive and lasting breastfeeding experience. Certified Breastfeeding Educators (CBE) are also available to help with your infant’s nutritional needs. And, because hospitals play an important role in making the experience easier, LMH is also a proud participant in High 5 for Mom & Baby, a program that aims to improve breastfeeding success in Kansas through hospital care that supports nursing moms and babies. We are proud to say our new moms have a very high breastfeeding rate of 90 percent.
In order to provide you with optimal care during delivery, the Family Birthing Center Care Team includes a trained staff of OB Technicians for additional nursing support.
Unit Secretary and Birth Clerk
The Family Birthing Center Team also includes a secretary and a clerk who will assist you when you call to schedule your preadmission appointment. They will also help you at the hospital when you complete and file your baby’s birth certificate.
Our environmental services team ensures the safety and well-being of our patients and visitors by helping to create a germ-free and clean environment.
