Providing safe, skilled and individualized care for expectant mothers and peadiatric patients
Is there any moment in life more defining and exciting than the birth of a baby?
With so many women in Oakville turning to community healthcare for a safe and healthy birth experience, it is no wonder that approximately 2,500 babies are born at OTMH every year.
OTMH’s Maternal Child Program offers a range of maternity services delivered by a comprehensive interdisciplinary team of dedicated care providers. This team includes obstetricians, family physicians, anaesthetists, midwives, and nurses to name a few. Through a patient and family-centered approach, they work together to meet the unique needs of each family to ensure their experience is as positive and comfortable as possible.
Thanks to the help of our donors, patients have access to a bright, spacious, and state-of-the-art facility equipped with top-of-the-line technology.
The department features 11 labour birth recovery postpartum (LBRP) single patient rooms designed to allow mothers to progress through the whole birth experience in one place and give families more space to welcome their new additions.
For babies who are born prematurely or who need special medical care, the Special Care Nursery features 10 bassinets in a well-designed area that gives families more privacy. The Hospital also has two courtesy rooms for mothers who have babies in special care in addition to a care-by-parent room. This room gives parents whose baby has experienced an extended hospital stay an opportunity to practice looking after their child in a controlled environment before taking their baby home.
Donor support will help fund the priority equipment needs and birthing beds this program requires to ensure women and their babies continue to receive exemplary care.
Name a Star
