Welcome to the Peter Lougheed Hospital Virtual Maternity Tour © Alberta Health Services
Time for Baby! The Peter Lougheed Hospital is located at 3500 – 26 Avenue N.E. Park in either Lot 3 or 4 which are closest to the West entrance © Alberta Health Services
Packing for labour A list of what to bring to the hospital is available in the Healthy Parents Healthy Children Pregnancy and Birth book. Both books are useful resources packed with information from prenatal through to age 6. The books are available online at or in hard copy by getting a redemption card from your doctor or midwife to exchange for the books at your local Community Health Clinic.www.healthyparentshealthychildren.ca © Alberta Health Services
Entrances There are two entrances to the hospital. If you park in the visitor lot, the West Entrance is the closest for you. The Main Entrance on the South side of the hospital has some short-term metered parking in front of it. After 9 p.m., use the intercom at either entrance to have the inner doors opened. Take the elevators to the third floor for Labour and Delivery. © Alberta Health Services
Labour and Delivery – Third Floor Follow the overhead signs to Unit 35A, the Birth Centre. Use the phone on the wall to the right of the Birth Centre door to be admitted to the unit. © Alberta Health Services
Entrances Check in at the desk. The clerk will get your information and take you to an assessment room. Your doctor will already have sent your records to the hospital. © Alberta Health Services
Assessing Your Labour You will be taken into an assessment (Triage) room, where the nurse will assess you. Your contractions will be monitored, and the nurse will also take your blood pressure and ask you questions about your pregnancy and your contractions. After the assessment is completed, your doctor will be notified. If you are in active labour, you will be admitted to the unit. If you are in very early labour and are having no problems, you may be sent home, with instructions about when to return. © Alberta Health Services
Admitting If you are going to be admitted for labour, your partner will be asked to go to the Admitting Department on the Main Floor to complete the paperwork. You will need moms Alberta Health Care card and any other insurance cards (for example, Blue Cross). © Alberta Health Services
Your Labour and Delivery Room Your private labour / birthing room has a bed and rocking chair for your use. While walking is a great way to enhance labour, your nurse will show you how to use the bed in different ways so that you are more comfortable. Each labour room has its own bathroom with shower. There is a fetal monitor beside the bed, which will be used intermittently throughout your labour. There is a phone in the labour room so you can let people know when the baby has arrived! You will stay in this room for the labour, birth and the first few hours after the baby is born. © Alberta Health Services
Support During Labour You are welcome to have two support people with you in labour. They will each be given a hospital wrist band. There isnt space for other family members and friends to wait in the hospital. It is beneficial to choose supporters who are capable and comfortable with providing the emotional and physical comfort measures that you will learn about in your prenatal classes. The hospital has several coffee shops and cafeterias where your support people can get something to eat. © Alberta Health Services
If Baby Is Born By Cesarean Birth © Alberta Health Services Should a cesarean birth be needed there are 2 operating rooms on unit 35A One support person can come into the operating room with you.
After A Cesarean Birth © Alberta Health Services After baby is born you will be moved to a recovery area where you will be monitored and have the opportunity to have skin to skin time with your baby. The nurse can also help you with baby's first breastfeed. You will then be returned to your room for the rest of your stay. After a cesarean birth the average stay is 48 hours.
Breastfeeding © Alberta Health Services It is normal for your newborn to feed frequently in the first few days to help you establish a good milk supply. The postpartum nurses will help you learn how to feed your baby.
The Mother-Baby Unit © Alberta Health Services One to two hours after your baby is born, you will move to Unit 33, the postpartum unit. To ensure the safety and privacy of new moms and babies, visitors must use the phone on the wall to the left of the doors to enter the unit.
Your Postpartum Room Most rooms on this unit are semi-private. There is a bathroom in each room. The few private rooms are often needed for mothers who are ill or who have special circumstances. A bassinet is provided for your baby. Baby will stay with you in your room and as much skin to skin contact as possible is encouraged. Your two support people may visit at any time, however, there is no overnight stay permitted. The babys siblings and grandparents may visit briefly between 11 am and 9 pm. The average stay after a vaginal birth is 24 hours. © Alberta Health Services
Postpartum Theme Room The Peter Lougheed Hospital also has two Theme Rooms on the Postpartum Unit. These are nicely decorated private rooms with double beds and special menus. These rooms cannot be reserved, but are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. There is an additional cost for these rooms on top of the private room fee. © Alberta Health Services
The Importance Of Skin-to-Skin © Alberta Health Services Calms and relaxes both mother and baby Regulates heart rate and breathing in the baby Stimulates digestion Regulates temperature Enables colonisation of babys skin with mothers friendly bacteria, thus providing protection against infection Stimulates feeding behaviour Stimulates the release of hormones to support breastfeeding and mothering Helps preterm babies to be more stable, maintain their temperature, fight infection, grow and develop better and be discharged from hospital sooner.
The Nutrition Centre There is a Nutrition Centre on the unit, where Mom can get snacks, juice, ice, or make hot drinks. © Alberta Health Services
Nurseries There is a small nursery on the postpartum unit. Your baby will be with you in your room most of the time, but this room is available if any procedures are needed. There is also a Neonatal Intensive Care on this floor, for babies who need extra help © Alberta Health Services
Going Home © Alberta Health Services According to Alberta law, infants must travel in an approved rear-facing car seat. Purchase this seat before your baby is born, and read both the manufacturers instructions and your vehicle owners manual for correct installation. For more information go to – test-bro.pdf
