Garrison Women’s Health Center is happy to be affiliated with Wentworth Douglass Hospital in Dover, NH, the top rated birth center in the Seacoast to deliver your baby.
Our staff works to make your experience as comfortable as possible, from the moment you walk through the door.
Your Birthing Suite
When you check into your birthing suite, you will stay in this room for your entire labor, delivery, and recovery. The baby can stay with you at all times.
We offer you all the comforts of home, in a hospital setting! Each room has a private bath and an extra bed for your partner.
We are very proud to offer so many great options to help you through a safe labor and delivery. Some of these include:
- Labor balls
- Birthing stools
- Birthing bar
- IV pain medication
- Paracervical or pudendal blocks
- Water therapy: shower, Jacuzzi
Pediatric and anesthesia services are available 24/7.
If your birth is cesarean, we strive to keep you, your partner, and your baby together through the entire process; this way, bonding is made as easy as possible. We are pleased to offer you a “gentle cesarean” that includes dim lighting, music of your choice, and immediate skin-to-skin bonding.
Your Birthing Plan
Birth is a natural process and our board certified physicians and nurse midwives have extensive experience in listening to your body and guiding you through this most treasured time in your life. There are many birthing options available to you. Our healthcare team is dedicated to honoring your preferred plan — we intervene only when there is a medical necessity. We always strive to give you adequate time to ask questions and weigh your options.
