Labor and Delivery
Every baby delivered at Box Butte General Hospital is a unique and rewarding experience because everything at BBGH is designed to make the occasion as comforting and memorable as possible, from our birthing units to post-partum rooms.
Our labor and delivery suites are designed to allow moms to labor and deliver in the same room and then spend several hours with the baby and family without having to be moved. Each suite offers a comfortable, spacious home-like atmosphere for the immediate family, with oak accents and a custom built oak headwall system that conceals medical equipment while keeping it close at hand. Our special birthing beds adjust to a variety of positions for your comfort during labor and delivery. Each Suite has a recliner, rocking chairs, a television and a CD player for your favorite music.
From there, the mother and child can comfortably recuperate in one of our post-partum suites, decorated to provide a normal, home like environment for the family during their brief stay after delivery.
Karen Aerts-Curtiss provides pre-natal Childbirth Education Classes every year for the expecting family. Classes are held on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 pm for 6 consecutive weeks. The schedule for each series of classes varies, so please contact Jaci Mach at firstname.lastname@example.org or 308.762.6660 ext. 3034.
We also provide new parents the opportunity to share the wonderful news of their little one's birth with family and friends who live too far away for a visit. To participate, the expecting mother can ask the attending nurse to have the baby's photo included in BBGH's Web Nursery.
