Obstetrics 

Welcoming a new baby is a unique and fulfilling experience. There is so much to share ... the anticipation, the excitement, and the joy of bringing a new life into the world.  Sanford Canby Medical Center has spacious and home-like birthing rooms that are designed for ultimate patient comfort and safety. These labor, delivery, recovery, and postpartum (LDRP) suites allow the mother to stay in one beautifully-decorated room from admission through labor and delivery until she and baby are ready to go home.  New moms will enjoy a private bath with shower/whirlpool tub. 

The parent(s) will also have the option to post a picture of the newborn baby via our website's baby gallery.  This is a fast and convenient way to let loved ones see a picture of the new arrival. 

The Sanford Canby Medical Center staff is experienced in assisting families and providing them with a positive birthing experience.  Physicians, Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA), nurses and respiratory therapy staff are certified by the Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP).  Lab, radiology, CRNA, respiratory therapy, pharmacy and surgery are also on-staff for OB needs.
