Maternity Center at Lakeside

Our experienced team includes board-certified OB/GYN physicians who are onsite through the night and 24/7 on weekends/holidays. If an emergency arises, they assist until your physician can arrive. An Intensive Care Unit stands ready to provide high-level care if a mother has complications before, during or after delivery. CHI Health Lakeside is the only full-service hospital in west Omaha.

The Maternity Center at CHI Health Lakeside has spacious, recently-updated birthing suites with deep soaking tubs, adjustable labor beds and sleeper sofas. Enjoy a queen-size bed and 24/7 room service with a variety of menu options after delivery:

Freedom to move around, birthing balls, laboring in the bathtub and an epidural are all options for managing your labor the way you choose. Our labor and delivery experts stay with you throughout your entire delivery to offer coaching and support. After delivery, a specially-trained lactation consultant will guide you through breastfeeding. You can rest assured knowing you’re surrounded by experts prepared to care for you and your baby. You will have around-the-clock access to anesthesiology, including nitrous oxide, which means pain control options are quickly available.
