Windsor Regional Hospital's Family Birthing Centre (FBC) provides a family-centred approach to your childbirth experience where you are invited to play an active part in your birthing experience. We are committed to providing the best care possible including healthcare education and a warm and nurturing environment.
Approximately 3800 births take place at Windsor Regional Hospital's FBC every year. The FBC is located on the 2nd Floor of the Met Campus and includes six labour, delivery, and recovery rooms (LDR) and thirty labour, delivery, recovery, and postpartum rooms (LDRP's) where you may labour, give birth, and remain in the same room until you are ready to go home.
The unit also includes two fully equipped operating rooms that are available for high-risk births and/or C-sections.
Maternal Newborn Programs and Services:
Recognizing the support that siblings can play, two children can accompany one adult caregiver in the post-partum department after a Mom has delivered her baby or babies.
More information on visiting hours and guidelines is available on our Patient & Visitor Information Page.
We do our best to ensure that if you want a private or semi-private room that we try to accommodate that request. However, due to the infection isolation requirements of particular patients, for example, the available number of private and semi-private rooms is very restricted.
However, if you register at admitting for a private or semi-private room we will do our best to accommodate your request during your stay once a private or semi-private room becomes available. At that time you will be asked for a valid credit card to reserve your choice. Your credit card will not be charged if we are able to verify that you have third-party insurance that will cover your stay in a private or semi-private room.
Also, if for some reason you have not asked for a private or semi-private room but you are placed in one, you could be moved during your stay to a wardroom, once they become available, to accommodate the requests of those that want a private or semi-private room.
For example, on Family Birthing, we have 1 wardroom that can accommodate 3 patients, 5 semi-private rooms, 28 private rooms and 14 rooms that are flexible to accommodate private or semi-private.
If you do not ask for a private room in Family Birthing but receive a private room please be advised, just like anywhere else in the hospital, you could be required to move to a semi-private or wardroom in order to accommodate the requests of other patients. We accommodate those that register for private rooms in order of time the request is received. If you are asked to move from a private room that you have not registered for, you can register for a private room at that time but you will be taken in the sequential order of your request. A valid credit card will be requested prior to the move being made.
As a result, if you wish to have a greater chance to have a private room throughout your stay at Windsor Regional Hospital, please register for one at admission.
