Antepartum Care


What is a Laborist?

Comfort, Safety, and Care While You're on Bed Rest

At the Antepartum Care Unit at St. Luke's Boise, our goal is to make you feel at home while you remain on bed rest. We never lose sight of this important fact: Every day we help a woman hold onto her pregnancy may save her baby three days in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU).

Women are admitted to the Antepartum Unit for a variety of reasons, from diabetes to premature labor to carrying multiples, and our team does whatever it takes to help women and their families feel at ease.

Antepartum Activities and Amenities

Spending up to eight weeks in bed when you’re not sick means distractions truly make a difference. We provide room service, craft classes, massage sessions, large-screen TVs, DVDs, Internet service, family lounge, and “Education in a Bag” pre- and post-natal learning. Patients can have visits from St. Luke’s Pet Therapy dogs (ask your nurse!), in addition to visits from their own furry family members.

Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU)

Caring for our tiniest patients is a big job. Our NICU teams are dedicated to the delicate physical, emotional, and developmental needs of premature and severely ill infants, some of whom weigh just over one pound.

Access to Maternal Fetal Medicine Specialists

A Maternal Fetal Medicine procedure room is adjacent to the Antepartum Unit, providing convenience for patients, staff, and St. Luke’s Maternal Fetal Medicine physicians who specialize in treating women with high-risk pregnancies.
