Entrance change for pregnant patients in labor

The entrance for pregnant or laboring patients being admitted, is the door to the left/east of the main Emergency Department entrance. This keeps healthy laboring moms distanced from those seeking Urgent Care or Emergency Department services. The screener at that entrance will screen and direct the patient to the Birth Center. This door is staffed 24/7.

Where is the Birth Center?

The Birth Center is located on second floor in the West Building of Marshfield Medical Center.

After 10 p.m., access to the Birth Center is provided through Hospital Security using the Emergency Department entrance.

When should you call the Birth Center?

Call us before coming in if you have:

  • Fluid leaking from your vagina – small frequent trickles or a large gush that continues to leak
  • Four to five contractions per hour lasting 60 seconds for an hour or more
  • Decreased fetal movement
  • Questions regarding cramps, vaginal pressure, discharge or a low, dull backache
