Mile Bluff Birthing Center
Mauston Pregnancy & Obstetric Services
Pregnancy is an exciting time in life for expecting mothers and fathers.
As parents wait for the arrival of their new bundle of joy, certain questions
about pregnancy and what to expect while expecting can arise. Mile Bluff
Medical Center's Obstetrics Department and team of pregnancy care
providers can help during this exciting and uncertain time.
Pregnancy Care Providers
As a new life begins, our team of pregnancy care providers supply parents
with the answers and care they need. Expecting mothers can rest assured
knowing that their doctor or midwife will be with them throughout pregnancy
and in the delivery room.
Pregnancy care services are available at our clinics in Elroy, Mauston,
Necedah, New Lisbon, and Wisconsin Dells. Midwifery services are available
at Mile Bluff Clinic. At Mile Bluff, many family medicine providers are
also trained in obstetrics (maternity care).
Mile Bluff provides a full-day education program for expecting parents.
During the class parents learn how to prepare for childbirth, what to
expect during delivery, how to care for a newborn, and what to expect
after returning home from the hospital. These classes are available throughout
the year in Mauston. See the
calendar of events for class availability.
Expecting parents are also invited to tour the birthing facility at Mile
Bluff Medical Center in Mauston. This is a great way to see what birthing
options are available locally. See the
virtual tour here.
Delivery at Mile Bluff
Here at Mile Bluff, new moms deliver in birthing suites that are designed
for labor, delivery, recovery and post-birth care. The homelike setting
allows mother and family to participate in the birth, with the assurance
that the state-of-the-art equipment is being used for a safe delivery.
At Mile Bluff, the obstetrics team strongly encourages skin-to-skin contact
during the first hour following baby's arrival. The staff will do
everything it can to honor, cherish and protect this special time for
For moms who have a planned, non-emergent C-section, we offer the
family-centered C-section. We slow down the traditional surgical method, and add various comforting
elements to enhance family bonding throughout the birthing experience.
At Mile Bluff, we support the decisions and choices of all mothers. Our
experienced team of nurses utilizes natural relaxation methods to ease
the labor process. If laboring mothers would like to utilize other pain
management options, certified registered nurse anesthetists are available
to discuss and administer epidurals and IVs.
Nitrous oxide may also be used at Mile Bluff as a safe pain management
alternative for laboring mothers.
Combining medical and lactation support, our goal is to help mothers and
babies achieve success however they choose to feed their baby. When a
mother is breastfeeding, she may encounter obstacles or challenges. If
this happens, it is important to remember that even though breastfeeding
is 'natural,' it still requires the learning of skills. When help
lactation consultations are available at Mile Bluff Clinic with our
international board-certified lactation consultant.
