Designing Your Delivery

Every expectant mom who delivers at Castle Rock Adventist Hospital can sit down for a free one-on-one consultation with our Birth Concierge. She’s a labor and delivery registered nurse who will help answer your questions, give you a tour of the center, and talk about your preferences for your birth experience. She’ll discuss our in-house OB anesthesia team, the birthing balls and jetted tubs available to help aid with labor, and even the mirrors and cameras in our operating rooms that capture caesarean births so moms don’t miss out on the experience. She’ll also help you pre-register and give you a personal tour of the BirthPlace.

Your information will be recorded in a digital file so that on the day of delivery, your doctors and nurses will know exactly what you want. This saves you from unnecessary stress and paves the way for a smooth experience.

Exceptional Amenities

If you give birth vaginally, you’ll labor, deliver, recover, and receive postpartum care in one of our six modern LDRP suites. You, your baby and your partner can all stay together. And with the couplet care at Castle Rock Adventist Hospital, you and your baby will be cared for by the same nurses from the time you arrive until the day you go home. There’s an additional postpartum suite for moms who deliver in one of our two OB-dedicated operating rooms, so moms who deliver by caesarean section will receive the same great care.

The LDRP suites have plenty of natural light and panoramic views of the Rocky Mountains. During labor, aromatherapy, guided imagery, and spa-like relaxing music help moms-to-be stay calm and focused. After delivery, your new family can settle in and enjoy your first few days together. Flat-screen TVs, wireless internet access, jetted tubs, crystal chandeliers, and gourmet in-room dining from Manna, the hospital’s on-site restaurant, combine the comforts of a boutique hotel room with the peace of mind that comes from knowing expert medical care is just steps away.

The Nursing Staff at The BirthPlace

The talented and loving nurses at The BirthPlace provide an unparalleled level of care and compassion to our new moms and babies. In addition to their special training and skills, they are problem solvers, critical thinkers, and truly believe in the mission and vision to care for each patient as a whole person by considering the needs of the mind, body, and spirit.

As part of the Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative, our nurses are trained to help new mothers initiate breast-feeding as soon as possible, and they aim to have moms and babies make skin to skin contact within 30 minutes after birth.

All of our nurses have certification in:

  • ACLS: Advanced Cardiac Life Support is a certification program based on guidelines from the American Heart Association. We want to make sure we’re taking great care of our moms as well as our new babies.
  • NRP: The Neonatal Resuscitation Program from the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Heart Association teaches hospital staff to use an evidence-based approach to resuscitation of newborns.
  • EFM: Electronic Fetal Monitoring certification is conducted by the National Certification Corporation. Training focuses on external and internal monitoring for fetal heartbeat and uterine contractions. This training helps our nurses partner with you during every stage of labor.
  • S.T.A.B.L.E.: An initiative to reduce infant mortality, the S.T.A.B.L.E. Program covers six assessment and care modules: Sugar, Temperature, Airway, Blood pressure, Lab work, and Emotional support. 

Nitrous Oxide use in Labor

Nitrous oxide use for labor pain is a mixture of 50% nitrous gas and 50% oxygen that is inhaled through a mask. It is used widely in dental offices; most people know of it as "laughing gas". You hold your own mask and begin to inhale the gas mixture about 30 seconds before a contraction begins. Starting to inhale before a contraction begins helps the gas to reach its peak effect at about the same time as the contraction reaches its peak, providing the greatest relief. The nitrous is self administered by the laboring woman, breathing it in as you feel the need. Once you decide you want to use it, your provider will order it and a member of the anesthesia team will come to your room, set it up, and review how to use it. Some women have reported nausea after prolonged use; medication to help ease the nausea is available if that happens. It can also cause some unsteadiness when up, which is why there should always be a family member or staff person in the room when you would like to get out of the chair or bed, in case you need assistance. You may be out of bed and use the nitrous. As long as you are steady on your feet, you may be up and about in your room. You will not be permitted to use nitrous oxide while also sitting in the tub. There are no known effects on the baby; nitrous is the only pain relief method used for labor that is cleared from the body through the lungs, so as soon as you pull the mask away, the nitrous effect is gone within a breath or two.

There are only a handful of hospitals in the country that offer this option for pain relief.
