Quiet Time

The Birthing Center observes a break in visiting hours called Quiet Time. Quiet hours are from 2 – 4pm each day, seven days a week. Visitors and hospital personnel are asked to come before or after these hours and the only interruptions will be for essential patient care. Quiet hours are designed to provide moms the much needed rest and privacy they deserve during their short stay. Each mom deserves uninterrupted quiet time with her new baby and support system.

Having quiet time helps decrease fatigue, increase bonding and allow mom to become familiar with baby’s feeding cues.

Childbirth and Breastfeeding Classes

In these classes, we will be discussing late pregnancy, labor and birth, infant care and feeding, breathing techniques, relaxation techniques and the care to expect at Madison Health. A tour of the Birthing Center is provided. You will enjoy activities, interaction with other expecting families and up-to-date information on the birth experience. Cost is $30 per session or bundle and save – $40 if classes are combined. For more information or to make an appointment, please call 740.845.7262 or visit https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/5SKP3ZG.

Lactation Services

Madison Health is proud to offer lactation services for breastfeeding mothers.

The goal of this service is to better educate all mothers about breastfeeding and help them in their goal to provide the best nutrition for their babies. Breastfeeding has several health benefits including a reduced risk of infections and illnesses, asthma and obesity.

A mother of three, Heather Huxley, RN, is an IBCLC Lactation Consultant dedicated to providing support and education to both prenatal and postpartum patients. She is actively involved in collaborating with community agencies and connecting mothers with the appropriate resources.

To Madison Health, Huxley brings military experience as well as OB nursing experience. She serves as the Hearing Program Coordinator and Nonstress Test (NST) nurse. Huxley also completed the neonatal resuscitation course and holds a Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) card.

For more information about lactation services, or to make an appointment, please call the lactation hotline at 740.845.7262.
