Grand River Hospital's childbirth program is committed to providing a family-centred approach to care, which is flexible and considers the individual needs of women and their families.
Emphasis is placed on fostering the family unit while maintaining a safe environment of quality health care. It is important to nurture families while respecting their diversities. Expectant parents will actively participate to make informed choices about their care within the limits of safety.
Childbirth is an experience of wellness and constitutes a time of physical, emotional and social change. It provides an opportunity to grow and develop; it is not an illness.
We recognize that stressful situations can occur during pregnancy and the birth of a new baby. At-risk births are potentially traumatic for the family involved. We will provide the support needed on an individual basis as we seek to minimize the potential trauma through a collaborative multidisciplinary team approach.
Our family-centered philosophy of care promotes physical and emotional support, teaching and assessment opportunities, and an atmosphere for growth. – less–ZoomInfo
