Labor & Delivery
Labor & Delivery Suites
The Family Center includes four birthing suites for labor and delivery, including a large suite for the birth of twins or multiple babies. Each suite provides a home-like environment with comfortable beds, new linens just for Maternity, deluxe bathrooms with walk-in showers, sofa, sleeper/recliner, free Wi-Fi throughout the hospital and flatscreen TVs.
After your baby is born, you can rest, relax and begin to bond with your baby in one of our 13 private mother/baby (post-partum) rooms. Just like our birthing suites, they include a bathroom with walk-in shower, sofa and flatscreen TVs.
After Baby Arrives
At Forrest City Medical Center, caring for you continues after your baby is born. After the months of planning and preparation are over, you both deserve some rest. We encourage mom and baby to room together. We offer you and your new family an hour of quiet time immediately following delivery so you can bond, nurse and celebrate with your little bundle of joy.
At Forrest City Medical Center, the comfort of moms comes first. Anyone is welcome to visit, but when a mom wants and needs rest, a team member will kindly explain that she’s requested some time alone. We encourage extended family and friends to call ahead and ask the nurses for a convenient time to make a brief visit.
