What to expect when you get to the hospital
You've made it to the hospital! Your bag is in hand, you're ready to deliver, and your family is waiting, what's next? When you arrive at Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Grapevine you can expect these things to happen:
- Enter the Women's Services entrance and proceed to the 2nd floor using the Green elevator. Please check in at the desk. You will need to present a picture ID (driver's license or other ID). If you arrive after 10 pm, press the button at the front entrance to gain access to the Women's and Children's area.
- You will be given a hospital gown that opens down the back for you to wear while in labor. You will be asked to remove all other undergarments before putting on the gown.
- You will be taken to an exam room or your birthing room where your nurse will talk with you to evaluate symptoms you're feeling.
- Be sure to give a copy of your birth plan to the nurses to add to your chart. Your physician or caregiver should already know your birth plan.
- A nurse will check your blood pressure, temperature, may obtain both blood and urine samples, and place devices on your abdomen that monitor the baby's heart rate and your contractions.
- The nurse, your on-call physician, or caregiver will perform a pelvic exam to evaluate the dilation and effacement of your cervix.
- An IV may be started to provide hydration if needed in the later stages of labor. This will also allow access of medication intravenously if it's suddenly needed. An IV is necessary if epidural anesthesia is used.
- Your physician may discuss with you about breaking your water if it has not already ruptured.
- Your labor nurse and caregiver will monitor you to note your progress. They will also monitor your baby's vital signs.
- You will be kept well hydrated during your labor and you will be encouraged to urinate often. Depending on your situation, you may have a catheter inserted to remove urine.
- As labor progresses, your physician or caregiver will keep you informed on what is happening and if any necessary interventions are needed.
Don't hesitate to ask questions or call for your nurse. Our patients come first and it is our goal to make sure that you and your baby are as comfortable as possible.
