Labor and Delivery
Lis Maternity Hospital
A rewarding delivery experience
From the skilled and compassionate staff to the extraordinary facilities, Lis Maternity Hospital strives to make the birthing experience comfortable and memorable for the mother-to-be. The state-of-the-art delivery rooms are among the most welcoming and well equipped in Israel.
All delivery rooms are private, with a warm design, and feature amenities such as an en-suite shower and toilet, a state-of-the-art delivery bed, a whirlpool-type bathtub, an armchair for the birthing partner, a television, a stereo and baby-care equipment. All delivery rooms enable natural births. In addition, a number of "home" birthing rooms offer the opportunity of giving birth with no medical intervention.
Every woman can choose the mode of delivery most suitable to her, both in terms of pain relief and birthing position (side, back, squatting, sitting, etc.) – provided, of course, that there are no medical contraindications.
Women can choose from a number of relaxation and pain relief methods, such as movement techniques, aqua-therapy, aromatic massage, and TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation). Delivery nurses are specially trained in these interventions.
Mothers-to-be may elect to receive an epidural immediately upon request, under the condition that the progress of the delivery allows it. Lis uses the EpiKal method of epidural anesthesia, which provides women with desired pain relief, while keeping them in control and involved in the progress of their delivery. The technique is very similar to an epidural, except for the concentration of the injected anesthetic substance. This technique enables women to move around in bed without pain.
On-site departmental facilities
Operating theaters dedicated to caesarian sections (emergency and elective) and a state-of-the-art recovery facility are located on the unit. Should the need arise, there are two units for neonatal intensive care.
Labor and Delivery is staffed by a team of obstetricians 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. There are always one or two senior staff physicians on duty, in addition to residents, midwives, and anesthetists on call for women wanting epidural anesthesia.
