Early Labor Lounge

At South Shore Hospital, our Early Labor Lounge is a space for moms who are too early in labor to be admitted to the hospital, but for whom it is not appropriate to be discharged home. Mom’s support team is welcome to join her in the Early Labor Lounge. 

This space is a home-like, relaxing space with low lighting, soothing music, yoga mats, birthing balls, comfortable chairs and shawls to help ease pressure on your back and abdomen. Additionally, there are heating packs, tennis balls and rolling pins for massage and tools for acupressure. Once a mom is in active labor, we can bring her to her room to welcome her baby.
