Job Description & Requirements
Labor & Delivery Nurse
At the Maternity Center at St. Francis, we provide the perfect blend of expertise and comfort for new moms and babies. Our goal is to make your birthing experience special and unique in the way you want it to be. We are happy to connect you with qualified HypnoBirthing® instructors, or traditional childbirth classes during your pregnancy. Should you wish, our anesthesiology team can provide a variety of pain control methods to ensure your comfort and safety throughout labor and birth. We work with you to create a birth experience that matches your expectations as closely as possible. The Maternity Center at St. Francis has been designated a Safe Sleep Hospital Champion by the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services.
At St. Francis, our cesarean rate for first-time mothers is 10 percent, which is lower than the national or Nebraska state average. If cesarean is necessary for a safe birth, operating suites and staff are ready at a moment’s notice. Skin-to-skin contact and other preferences can still be honored with cesarean birth.
Trial of Labor After Cesarean (TOLAC) sometimes referred to as Vaginal Delivery after Cesarean (VBAC) is also offered at the Maternity Center at St. Francis.
