Swedish Ballard Instructions

Swedish Ballard Instructions

Checking in to Swedish Ballard.

  • Park in the main garage across the street from the hospital on Tallman Avenue N.W. The skybridge will take you to the third floor of the hospital.
  • A nurse will greet you when you arrive and check you into the triage area.
  • Once you’re in your suite, your nurse will have you sign consent forms and ask you a few questions about your health and pregnancy history. She’ll check your blood pressure, temperature and pulse, the baby’s heart rate, and observe your contractions. She’ll take urine and blood samples, and possibly start an IV.
  • If you’ve made a birth plan or have any questions, concerns or requests, now is the time to share them with your nurse.
