Advanced Medicine and Dedicated Care for Every Mother and Baby
The MoBap Childbirth Center is known for providing advanced medicine in a uniquely personal environment. We’re proud that many people choose MoBap for many different reasons. And we hope to help you with your decision by offering the following information on what we believe makes us special.
We are very fortunate to be affiliated with St. Louis Children’s Hospital and Washington University pediatricians. They make up a good part of the staff in our on-site Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). In fact, these physicians rotate between Children's and MoBap, bringing the very best in care to our smallest patients. In addition, there is a children’s E.R. at MoBap, designed specifically for kids from birth to 18 and staffed by St. Louis Children’s Hospital pediatricians.
Also at MoBap, we specialize in delivering twins and triplets. After delivery, we follow up with expert care – with staff members who have had years of experience with multiples.
Our NICU has been approved by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the National Association of Neonatal Nurses to care for premature babies as young as 28 weeks. As mentioned, we have the additional expertise of St. Louis Children’s Hospital Neonatologists available around the clock, should your baby need more specialized care.
Personalized, Dedicated Care
At MoBap our goal is to make you feel like you are the only family in the hospital. So everything we do is driven by a personalized approach.
New parents rave about our nursing care! Our experienced labor nurses will guide you through the birth experience. We also believe in one nurse for mother and baby. We feel you both get the best attention this way, and many women appreciate having less traffic in the room.
Another part of our philosophy is choice-based anesthesia. That means, if you choose to have an epidural, we will administer it when you’re ready. Our anesthesiologists are on-site and available, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We do this because your comfort means everything to us.
We provide a peaceful environment that’s family-focused. You’ll notice the lack of noise and a very comfortable atmosphere that some call “homey” or “unhospital-like.” You’ll also see family nourishment stations where family members can re-charge.
Carpeting, restful lighting and a soft color palate surround you at the MoBap Childbirth Center. We’ve designed it this way so that your experience will feel more comfortable, and less clinical.
We offer private mother and baby rooms, with bathrooms and partner sleeping arrangements, where your family can form that very important bond with your new baby.
And our “Dining On Call” menu is available to you 7am – 7pm. You will have a full range of choices so that you may order whatever appeals to you. Again, we want you to feel comfortable and happy, and food is big part of that.
Now that we’ve told you in our own words what we’re all about, we welcome you to ask around and see what others are saying. Your friends, neighbors and co-workers who have delivered at MoBap are always our best advertisement. In addition, feel free to visit our Facebook page. We hope you become a fan of MoBap, too.
