Maternity Care Nurses

  Kim Beaulieu, RN, C, IBCLC, is one of the lactation consultants.

Our state-of-the-art maternal/newborn department features 11 private, LDRP (labor, delivery, recovery, postpartum) rooms, fostering a family-centered environment, complete with overnight accommodations for the patient’s support person.

Mid Coast Hospital nurses attend all births, provide support and care to mothers, babies and family members, and provide a full complement of patient education including traditional and holistic childbirth preparation, lactation, infant massage, and siblings classes. In addition we have full time lactation services for both inpatients and outpatients provided by certified lactation consultants.

The Maternity unit has a Hotline (373- 6525), staffed by nurses, available 24 hours/ 7 days/week for any questions. We offer a free twice monthly Mothers Circle Support Group and a free monthly New Mothers Support Group.

Thirty two of the nurses hold national and/or international advanced certifications in Maternal/Newborn Nursing, Inpatient Obstetrics, Infant Massage, Lactation, Child Birth Education, and Holistic Child Birth Education. Several of our nursing staff hold multiple certifications.
