Birth Center & Maternity
Childbearing is a joyful occasion, and we’ve taken every step to make your experience comfortable and memorable. From their hardwood floors to their homelike furnishings, our private birthing suites allow mothers to go into delivery in a relaxed, well-appointed setting.
Families and other support persons are welcome. Each suite includes a day bed for guests, along with access to refreshments for their convenience. Other amenities include an in-room whirlpool bath to help new moms relax, along with a television, VCR, and a stereo/CD unit. Room service meals and snacks can be delivered to your room within 30 minutes of ordering.
Custom-crafted bassinets allow you to have your new baby nearby as much as you desire. And when you need a break, your newborn can always spend some time in our nursery.
Telephone Checkup and Support
Shortly after you return home, a lactation specialist will call to check in on your and your baby’s health and to see how your nursing routine is coming along. We encourage you to call our specialist at any time if you have breast feeding questions or concerns. In fact, families are encouraged to call our specialists with any questions.
