Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBAC)
Jackson Health System fully supports vaginal birth after Cesarean (VBAC) deliveries. If you have a history of Cesarean delivery, it may be possible to experience natural birth with your next baby. Find out who is generally a candidate for a VBAC procedure and what to expect. Each Jackson maternity program supports VBAC as a safe choice in accordance with American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists’ practice guidelines.
Circumcision is available to all infants younger than 5 weeks old who weigh less than 11 pounds. Several methods are used to minimize discomfort and calm the baby during the procedure, including a topical anesthetic cream, and Marcaine/lidocaine injection, or a pacifier dipped in sweetened water.
To learn more about either of these procedures talk to your maternity team.
Cord Blood Donations
Babies born at Jackson Memorial Hospital can become some of Florida’s youngest life savers when parents choose to donate their cord blood to LifeCord. This FDA-licensed, public cord blood bank is one of only five U.S. licensed cord blood banks, and the only one in the Southeast. Donating cord blood is painless for mother and baby, and the collection procedure does not affect the baby or the normal birthing experience. There is no charge for the life-saving service.
Contact our LifeCord coordinators at 305-585-3679 for more information.
Safe Sleep Program
When you choose to deliver your little miracle at Jackson Memorial Hospital, you are also selecting a hospital that earned a Gold Certified Safe Sleep Champion designation from the Cribs for Kids® National Safe Sleep Hospital program. This highest-level certification means staff go above and beyond in a pursuit to reduce sleep-related deaths (SRD) by promoting practices and education for infant sleep safety.
