Assessing Your Labour First you will be assessed in an assessment (Triage) room. Your contractions will be monitored, your blood pressure taken, and you will be asked questions about your pregnancy and your contractions. After the assessment is completed, your doctor or midwife 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
Your Labour and Birth Room Your private labour / birthing room has a bed and chair. Walking is a great way to enhance labour and your nurse can also show you how to use the bed in different ways and can also supply you with a birth ball so you can change positions for comfort. © Alberta Health Services
Your Private Bathroom Each room has its own bathroom with shower. Many women find that using the shower during labour helps them stay more comfortable. © Alberta Health Services
Support During Labour You are welcome to have support people with you in labour. 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. © Alberta Health Services

The nurse can also help you with baby's first breastfeed. You will then be moved 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.
Your Postpartum Stay © Alberta Health Services One or two hours after your baby is born you will be moved to your postpartum room. You will stay in either a private or shared room. The average length of stay is 24 hours after a vaginal birth.
