New Arrival at the Family Birth Center

Fetal monitors are a critical piece of equipment for use during labor and delivery. The electronic monitor tracks the heart rate of the baby, checks the duration of contractions,  and lets caregivers know if the baby is doing well during labor and delivery.  For many years, the fetal monitors in the Family Birth Center were housed in bulky carts with wide screens, which took up too much space in patient rooms.  Thanks to the generosity of Bob Holbrook, seven new fetal monitor carts were purchased for the Family Birth Center.  The new carts are safer, more compact, easier to manipulate and more aesthetically pleasing.  Staff and laboring mothers and their babies will all benefit from this new addition to the Birth Center.  Please join us and the staff of the Family Birth Center in thanking Bob for his ongoing generosity!
