Our years of experience are at your service. At Shaare Zedek Medical Center we deliver over 22,000 babies each year, 6000 of them at Bikur Cholim Campus. We handle a wide variety of births: regular births, IVF births and high-risk pregnancies. Our medical expertise will provide you with the best professional care.
Many things are taken into consideration when choosing the place to give birth. We want you to know what we believe in:
• Your birth, the way you want it.
We believe the parents must be fully involved in caring for the baby from the very beginning. We will be happy to meet with you during the pregnancy and discuss your birth plan.
We will present you with a variety of options, including many pain management techniques, different delivery positions, yoga, therapy and the use of a physio ball.
You will decide if you're interested to give birth naturally of with the help of painkillers (namely epidural). If you wish to try a regular delivery even though you had a caesarian in the past, we will advise you and stand by you at every step of the way.
Our midwives are trained in many delivery techniques and emphasize openness so that you may have the best birth experience. We are fully equipped to provide all the support and assistance you require in your preferred delivery method.
• The nurse's station is equipped with screens that are connected to the delivery rooms monitors to ensure full supervision and immediate availability if necessary.
• We make sure the mother and newborn have plenty of time together in the time right after the birth.
• We encourage breastfeeding. Our midwives will help you with the first feeding and our breastfeeding instructors are at your service, even after you're discharged from the maternal ward.
Throughout the delivery process we try, in accordance with your needs and preferences, to give you the best care and medical treatment. Come visit us and see for yourselves.
