You wait months for your baby’s arrival. Mercy helps you make the most of your special moment. As partners in your baby's birth, our dedicated labor and delivery team in Rogers, AR welcomes your little one with respect for your personal preferences, and with the care that's tailored to your needs. Complete your birth plan and share your preferences with your OB or family medicine doctor several months or weeks before your baby's birth. When the time arrives, be sure to bring your birth plan with you to share with the labor and birth nursing staff.
At Mercy Birthplace in Northwest Arkansas, we offer private birthing suites and a comprehensive range of options and services that allow you to create a birth plan that meets your unique physical, emotional and family needs.
After delivery, your new family will move to a private postpartum room where you can recover and get to know your baby. We’ll be there as well to answer questions and offer tips on newborn care, such as how to bathe or swaddle your baby. Most moms choose to have their baby in their room throughout their visit, which promotes better bonding and more opportunities to feel comfortable with taking care of your infant before you leave.
During your stay, one of our certified lactation consultants will stop by to discuss the benefits of breastfeeding, help you learn how to position your baby, and show you how to use a breast pump, if desired. She’ll also answer any questions or concerns you may have. You are always welcome to call our lactation consultants even after you go home or schedule time to return for an onsite consultation if you have continued breastfeeding concerns.
