Wesley Birth Care Suites
3222 E. Murdock St, Wichita, KS 67208
Wesley Birth Care Suites provides a comforting, family-centered environment for women to give birth. Located just north of Wesley’s main building, this facility is specifically designed to support the birth experience each expectant mother has and their newborn’s care and comfort.
Wesley Birth Care Suites has 20 birthing and two surgical sites. Labor delivery and recovery, and the subsequent stay all take place in the same comfortable room where mother and baby stay together. Each suite includes a family room and private bathroom in addition to the mother’s room. Caregiver beds are provided in each suite for family and friends to stay overnight. The facility provides a playroom for young siblings and a comfortable lobby where additional family members can await your baby’s arrival.
Expectant moms who are 37 weeks and without complications and who think they may be in labor – or their water has broken – may deliver at Wesley Birth Care Suites.
If complications develop while you are Wesley Birth Care Suites and you need to deliver by cesarean section, you will be taken to one of two surgical suites available. After the birth, you will return to your room to recover.
Along with our moms who are in admitted active labor or whose water has broken, Wesley Birth Care Suites also offers scheduled inductions. Visit with your physician to see if you are a candidate for an induction of labor.
Wesley was the first hospital in Kansas to be designated a Baby-Friendly birth facility. The designation by Baby-Friendly USA encourages skin-to-skin contact between mothers and newborns as well as rooming in. Both practices encourage bonding and improve the newborn’s ability to breastfeed. Wesley follows the “Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding” guidelines that offer mothers information, confidence and skills needed to successfully initiate and continue breastfeeding their babies.
Wesley Birth Care Suites is staffed by some of the best obstetricians, family medicine physicians, anesthesiologists and nurses in the state. Our exceptional medical team is here to make sure your delivery is as comfortable and safe as possible. We have the experience and most advanced equipment to give you and your baby the best care possible.
