Your care team consists of family practice doctors, specialized birth care nurses, certified registered nurse anesthetists, certified lactation consultants, our dietary team and more.

Many of our team members live and work in our communities, often giving us the privilege of knowing the people who walk through our doors. It’s one of the reasons our patients say the care at Olivia Hospital & Clinic feels so personal.

Pain management

Some women prefer a medication-free delivery while others choose to explore pain management options. At the Olivia Hospital & Clinic Birth Center, what’s important to you is important to us. We’ll help you understand your options and support your preferred birth plan. We offer the following pain management options so you can choose what works best for you throughout labor and delivery:

  • Epidural medication
  • Intrathecal medication
  • Other pain management medications

Our birth center and private birth suites were created with the comfort of moms and families in mind. In addition to free Wi-Fi and cable TV in our birth suites, our amenities include:

  • Private rooms with bathrooms (including shower and whirlpool tub)
  • Glider chair and couch
  • DVD players
  • Beautiful garden views
  • Soothing décor, comfort lighting and other thoughtful touches for a calming environment
  • Celebration meal to enjoy after your baby is born
Breastfeeding support

Research shows that breastfeeding has many benefits for both babies and mothers. But breastfeeding can be an adjustment. It’s our goal to make sure you and your baby get a good start on breastfeeding before you leave the birth center, and that you have our continued support as you adjust to life at home.

We provide both prenatal and postpartum lactation services for patients in Olivia and the surrounding areas. For more information about breastfeeding support or our Outpatient Lactation Clinic, please call 320-523-3469.
