Preparing for labor
We offer classes to help you prepare for delivery, learn about labor techniques and help with parenting after the baby arrives. Topics covered include breast-feeding, sleeping and general newborn care.
Patient comfort and safety
Our comfortable, secure birthing and postpartum rooms are outfitted with the latest technology, assuring the best treatment for you and your baby.
Neonatal intensive care unit
While most births occur without complications, several of our hospitals have a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) which offers medical monitoring and specialized care. Neonatologists at Fairview Ridges Hospital, Fairview Southdale Hospital and University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital provide around-the-clock care for babies who are born prematurely, have a low birth weight, or experience other medical complications.
Care before, during and after the birth of your baby
Fairview’s nurses, doctors and midwives are here to help you throughout your pregnancy and birth experience. We make sure all of our parents receive the care and support they deserve as they welcome a new member to their family. The safety and health of mothers and babies is our top priority.
