“We offer:

  • A team of specialists to care for you: The Family Birthplace provides comprehensive care 24/7 by a team of specialists who are highly skilled, compassionate and multi-lingual. Our team includes board-certified obstetricians, certified nurse-midwives (CNMs) and a neonatologist with special training in caring for high-risk newborns. We also have anesthesiologists on site to provide medical pain management, such as an epidural, if you choose.
  • A family birthing experience: We know how important the birth of your baby is to your entire family. That’s why we encourage the baby’s father, siblings, grandparents and other relatives to be as involved as they wish – before, during and after the birth. We allow dad and one other support person to be present for the delivery from beginning to end. Our liberal visiting hours allow family members to spend plenty of time with mom and the new baby. Typically, newborns are with their moms in the room around the clock.
  • Labor/Delivery/Recovery/Postpartum (LDRP) suites that include:
    • In-room bathroom and shower.
    • Subdued lighting to help you relax.
    • An oversized guest chair that converts to a bed for your support person.
    • A large, heated tub in your private suite to provide comfort during labor.

    • Level II+ NICU / Advanced Care Nursery with advanced monitoring and neonatal intensive care.
    • Specially trained nurses for high-risk and pre-term babies.
    • A special fetal assessment area for diagnostic testing before the baby is born.
