Scope of Services

Ten Amazing Things about the Family Birthing Center

  1. Your private birthing suite. Soft colors, curved walls and spacious views set the scene. Each suite is designed with three zones — caregiver, patient and family — to help you feel most comfortable.
  2. Homelike amenities. Comfy fold-out couches, walk-in showers, toiletries, a blow dryer, flat-screen televisions and Wi-Fi technology provide the amenities of home.
  3. Innovative technology. Each suite is furnished with the latest technology to ensure that everything is just a touch away for you and your baby.
  4. Whirlpool tubs. Two of our suites feature whirlpool tubs for women who want water therapy and wish to experience a birth using alternative comfort measures.
  5. A family kitchen. Your family members can make themselves right at home by using our fridge and microwave whenever they want.
  6. A private entrance. Arrive and depart from the Family Birthing Center through a special entrance without needing to find your way through the Hospital.
  7. A dedicated care team. Your team accommodates your wishes and focuses on making your experience restorative and memorable.
  8. Birthing choices. From a natural childbirth to a water birth to an epidural or a C-Section, we recognize that no two births are exactly alike and that the choice is between you and your physician or midwife.
  9. Specialized care. If your newborn requires special attention, our Special Care Nursery and staff are ready to care for you in your baby’s private room, equipped with a fold-out couch for your comfort. We encourage you to participate in your infant’s care while your baby is being cared for by specially trained nurses and physicians.
  10. Warm cookies! We bake them every night to enhance the feeling of home.
