MEET BECKY AND HER TEAM

With three children at home already, Becky and Chris Anderson of Dover were a bit shocked to learn that she was pregnant with triplets. Anticipating any challenges with a multiple-birth, the delivery and pediatric teams at the Women & Children’s Center at Wentworth-Douglass Hospital practiced mock scenarios to prepare for Becky’s triplets to arrive. “I knew we were in the best hands,” says Becky. “I never considered going anywhere else.” Before, during, and after the delivery, Becky’s medical team was there to help the family meet any and all challenges—and joys—of bringing their own little team safely home.

MEET THE WOMEN & CHILDREN'S CENTER TEAM

Becky's team at WDH consisted of multiple OB/GYN physcians, an anesthesiologist, nurses and Pediatric physicians, including 18 people in the delivery room when her triplets were ready. To find out more about our physicians, search them by specialty or name through our Provider Search.

 

 

INDIVIDUALIZED LABOR PLANS

We encourage you to make a birthing plan that is suitable for you. Because women's perceptions of labor pain vary, so do their choices about pain management and comfort. Our staff's philosophy is to partner with you to enable the labor you envision. We have many options for non-medicated and medicated labor to help you through the process. Hypnobirth, jacuzzi, wireless fetal monitoring, birth balls, pain medications and epidurals are just some of our options for labor and delivery. You can choose who will be present during your labor process.

INDIVIDUALIZED CARE IN PRIVATE SUITES

Providing quality care and comfort are our top priorities. Warm, inviting, private rooms offer mom, baby and family all the comforts of home. Babies room-in with mom and dad so our nurses can educate the whole family on new baby and mom care. Our RN staff and our Certified Lactation Consultants are trained to provide breastfeeding education and support to each woman who chooses to breastfeed. We provide room-service style meals so that mom may order her food according to her own schedule. For safety and security, all entrances to the Birth Center are locked and visitors are invited in with your permission only. Security cameras monitor the hallways.

FAMILY-CENTERED PHILOSOPHY

Our experienced medical staff, including Board Certified OB/GYNs, Certified Nurse Midwives, Pediatricians, Anesthesiologists, Registered Nurses and Lactation Consultants believe in a philosophy of total care for the mother, baby and family.

LEVEL II NURSERY

We offer a designated level II nursery, which means that we are able to provide your infant with an added level of care should the need arise. Our RN staff care for premature infants and infants who have complications after birth. We can consult with Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center's specialized neonatal staff when necessary.

HOME VISITING NURSES

The hospital offers every woman a home visit with a maternal-newborn nurse. The nurse will call to schedule the visit within a few days of discharge. During the visit, she will do a complete physical exam of both mother and baby, and answer any questions that the new family may have. Each visit is individualized to meet the woman's specific needs. For more information, call (603) 740-3324.
