The Laborist Program at Aurora BayCare Medical Center

We’ll be here, waiting for you

Because babies don’t always wait for doctors, you can have peace of mind knowing there’s always an OB/GYN specialist at Aurora BayCare Medical Center, 24 hours a day, every day, just in case.

Our Laborist Program is the only one if its kind in Northeast Wisconsin. This program ensures that a board-certified OB/GYN is always on-site in the hospital. These specialists are always ready at a moment’s notice to address any health needs for you and your baby.

It’s different from other hospitals and clinics in that an Aurora OB/GYN is always on-site to help your pregnancy, labor and delivery.  Many other hospitals have their doctors on call but they may be covering multiple hospitals and be as much as 30 minutes from the hospital when they are paged.  In urgent and non-urgent situations, it’s nice to know that an OB/GYN specialist is always present, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

We believe our laborist model provides better collaboration with nurses and other members of your health care team, and more importantly, provides better care and quality to you.  At Aurora BayCare, our laborists respect each family's birth plan and collaborate with you and your health care team to help achieve the best outcomes possible.


  • Monitor the progress of your labor
  • Answer questions you and your family may have
  • Respond to unusual test results or circumstances
  • Assist in the delivery of your child
  • And most importantly, are there when emergencies arise

OB/GYN specialists in our Laborist Program are just part of the specialized team of nurses and doctors ready to assist you with expert, care around-the-clock.  You can be confident that we’ll be there when you need us.

Ahead of the Trend

Aurora BayCare’s Laborist Program is the only one of its kind in Green Bay and Northeast Wisconsin.  But hospitals all over the country are turning to laborists to enhance patient safety.  Emergencies can occur and when they do, time is precious.  Aurora BayCare always has an OB/GYN on-site, ready to provide lifesaving intervention.
