Pregnancy and giving birth are usually normal, healthy processes

Medical interventions are kept to a minimum, but are available if needed and desired. We provide the highest quality care for each pregnancy and birth. Our care is designed to enable the family to return home as soon as possible.

Family is the Center of This Experience

Each family is special. We view each family as a unit working together with their healthcare team.

Our staff is committed to providing the best care

We work with a caring and cooperative spirit. We continually strive to improve our services and keep our costs affordable. As a holistic healthcare team, we are concerned about our patients' physical, emotional and spiritual needs. We feel honored to care for each family and participate in the birth of their baby.

Family and friends are welcome

We recognize that the birth of a baby is a family event.

Based on your wishes, we welcome spouses, partners, children, parents and friends. In fact, women who have significant emotional support during birth may have fewer Caesarean sections, require less pain medication, have less postpartum depression, continue breast-feeding longer and have more positive memories of their childbirth experience.

Nearly all women find that the assistance of someone who can provide steady, caring support during pregnancy, labor and birth is extremely helpful and meaningful. Your support person may be a family member, partner or friend. Our nurses are also expert providers of support. At the time of birth, to promote patient safety, the number of support people may be limited. Your primary support person may stay with you throughout your hospital stay.


Options for pain management and delivery

There are many options to deal with the pain of childbirth. Our goal is to honor your wishes while you remain in control of your body. Medications are available as needed. Anesthesiologists are on staff 24 hours a day. Other options include a variety of positions, use of the shower, bringing your favorite music, breathing and relaxation techniques. We will work with you and your partner to give birth in a position that feels right to you.
