Maternal/Infant/Child Program

Patient and family-centred care is at the heart of Bluewater Health’s Maternal/Infant/Child Program in our care of women, children and families. Our multidisciplinary team includes obstetricians/gynecologists, pediatricians, midwives, and experienced, highly trained healthcare providers and support workers. Together, we meet the unique care needs of over 1,000 mothers and babies each year. We strive to provide exemplary healthcare experiences for patients and families every time!

OMama offers a website and mobile application (app) to connect Ontario women and families to trusted, evidence-informed pregnancy, birth and early parenting information. Bluewater Health is pleased to support this helpful resource for parents. Click here to access the Omama website and to download the Omama app.

For women of 34 weeks gestation or more, we offer labour, birth, recovery and post-partum care (LBRP) all in one room. This improves patient comfort and provides a calm and more home-like setting in which to keep families together before, during and after their birth experience.

Our staff provides therapeutic support to labouring moms and offers measures to improve comfort and manage pain during labour and birth. Epidural service is also available 24-hours per day.

Our level II Special Care Nursery is well equipped to care for fragile newborns that require additional support after birth. If baby is born at another hospital, he/she can be transferred here so that care can be provided closer to home for Sarnia-Lambton families.

Our Inpatient Paediatric unit provides care for children and young adults from birth up to the age of 18. An outpatient service for day surgery patients younger than three years of age is also offered here.

We encourage and support parents’ role in their child’s care.
