Labour & Delivery

The Labour and Delivery Unit provides care to pregnant, labouring persons and newborns. 

The Labour and Delivery Unit is located on Level 2 of the North tower.

The unit has private rooms equipped with a bed, reclining chair, shower and birthing ball. You will labour and deliver your baby in this room. If you require a caesarean section (C-section), either planned or unplanned, you will deliver in the operating room.

What to expect

While in the Labour and Delivery Unit, your health care team may include Midwives, Physicians and Nurses. To ensure you have a wonderful birth experience, discuss your birth plan and expectations with your health care team. 

Our team is trained in supportive care in labour, and will be in the room with you for most of your labour. They will provide information, support and clinical care.

Pain management options are provided as needed.

A few hours after you have delivered your baby, you and your newborn will move to the Maternal Child Unit.

Visiting Labour & Delivery

Labouring persons may have up to 2 consistent support people/Essential Care Providers (ECPs) in their labour room at all times. Only one support person is permitted in the operating room during cesarean births. 

For information about visiting postpartum patients, please visit our Mother and Child (Maternity) Unit page.

For general information about ECPs and visitors, see our Maternal & Child Program page.
