This week, Tarzan and I attended a maternity tour at The Sky Ridge Medical Center, where I will be delivering Salma. We met with a lovely lady, who took us through the entire hospital process...everything from where to park, registration, the LDR (labor/delivery/recovery) suites and postpartum care. We even got to sneak a peek at the little bambinos in the nursery.
I was very impressed with the staff and facilities. The staff supports keeping the baby with the mother/father at all times, which is why everything needed for a vaginal birth is in-room. If complications were to arise, Sky Ridge has a state of the art neonatal intensive care unit. They are a Level 4 (out of 5) NICU hospital. A Level 5 NICU is the most advanced, and that being Children's Hospital in Denver. I'm confident we'll be in talented hands!
Tarzan was most was most excited by how amazing the suites are. They really are! Marble floors, lots of room, flat screen TV for him to watch, room service, etc...
It definitely put things in perspective that iin less than 3 weeks, we will be having our first child together! Agghhh, now if I could just fast forward through the whole labor part, that would be GREAT!
