LOS BANOS — Memorial Hospital Los Banos delivered new technology to its Family Birth Center and everyone from mothers to hospital staff are excited about its arrival.
Thanks to philanthropic funds generated from the community at MHLB’s annual 2016 gala, the Family Birth Center purchased two Monica Novii wireless fetal monitors. Family Birth Center Manager Misty Mendonca, R.N., was thrilled to finally cross these two items off her wish list.
“There are so many benefits to these monitors – the biggest is that they promote freedom for our laboring mothers,” she said.
Most laboring mothers prefer to walk the hallways of the labor and delivery department while waiting for their little one to arrive. That’s not possible when you are in a bed hooked up to a fetal monitor.
“We want mothers to have choices – to be able to do what’s most comfortable for them while they are in labor,” said Mendonca. Read more... about Memorial Hospital Los Banos Welcomes New Technology to Birthing Center
