Making childbirth a more personalized and relaxing experience

next generation of labor rooms
Sheba welcomes the next generation of labor rooms

At Sheba, we know that every childbirth is special, and so take great care to ensure that the delivery experience is exceptional for every mother,

For the first time in Israel, Sheba launched a new and unique next generation labor room which allows the mother to not only select how to give birth, but also to create a bespoke atmosphere and experience.

Sheba’s innovative labor room was designed on the basis of a new concept for how the birthing process should be experienced. Our smart room combines a choice of stress reducing music, a soothing display of changing LED lights and comforting videos depicting natural settings. In this manner we aim to create a harmonic experience of lights, sounds and nature, making the labor room feel less formal, creating a more relaxing and comfortable atmosphere for the mother, which in turn enables her to better deal with any pain experienced during childbirth.

Do you want to sing in the rain? Swim with dolphins? Always dreamed of seeing the northern lights? Just say the word. If all you need is rest – activate sleep mode and grab a nap by a gentle starlight. Our rooms interface with your personal devices, allowing every mother to listen to her favorite songs, watch Netflix or YouTube, and conduct video chats with friends and family.

“The birth giving experience is unforgettable for the mother. It’s important that the delivery itself, the climax of the pregnancy, is a positive, empowering and relaxing experience, which can help reduce pain levels,” says Prof. Eyal Sivan, Director of the Josef Buchmann Gynecology and Maternity Center. As Sivan explains: “We started a pilot with one labor room, but in the near future more special labor rooms will be built to serve alongside our existing conventional rooms and natural birth rooms.”

Research conducted on the subject in recent years shows that a supportive audio-visual environment can constitute an effective treatment against acute and chronic pain, and also assist in reducing stress levels. This last fact is particularly important, since high stress levels are associated with increased pain during childbirth, prolonging delivery, hampering milk production and the child’s ability to latch and contributing to postpartum depression.
