Private Rooms


Our rooms are equipped for labor, delivery and recovery - so you won't have to move once you've been admitted. The rooms also promote a family-centered setting with a comfortable rocker and recliner. C-sections and VBAC (vaginal delivery after Cesarean section) deliveries are also provided as situations require.

C-Section Suite


The maternity surgical suite is a spacious operating room is located within the Family Maternity Center on the fourth floor. The location and flexible layout improves function and safety of patient care. It allows for faster patient transit time from patient labor/delivery rooms to the OR suite. The room has an optimal design for patient safety, comfort and convenience.

From pregnancy and childbirth to breast feeding and post-partum care, our experienced staff creates a comfortable, caring environment for parents to bond with their newest family member. Lamaze, sibling and breast-feeding classes are available to new moms and their families.

Post-partum Care


Once the baby is here, he or she will remain in your room throughout the day. At night, the baby may stay in your room or return to the nursery. All babies are brought to their mother's room for feedings on demand. The nursery is available at all times if needed.

Specialized Care


We also work closely with the South-Central Illinois Perinatal Network in HSHS St. John's Children's Hospital. The Perinatal Center includes a team of Southern Illinois University (SIU) School of Medicine physicians who specialize in maternal-fetal medicine and neonatology. Maternal consultation is offered twice a month at SFL with a referral from your OB Provider.
