Family Birth Center
The Family Birth Center at Providence St. Mary Medical Center offers the comforts of a warm, comfortable home with state-of-the-art facilities to help you welcome your little one into the world. We offer four full-furnished birth suites – spacious rooms with lots of natural light and decorated in muted earth tones. There’s comfortable furniture in the family living room, located directly across from the birthing rooms, so your family is never far.
The birth suites feature jetted two-person jetted tubs with underwater monitoring, so even moms whose babies need continuous monitoring can enjoy water therapy. Built-in sofa beds allow labor partners to stretch out, get a nap, or just relax for a few minutes.
Other comfort options include squatting bars, birth balls and rocking chairs. Our team of experts will guide you through labor and delivery. Lactation experts offer breastfeeding education in English and Spanish. And, free lactation consultations are available after you go home.
Doctors provide well-baby care in your room. In fact, your baby doesn’t go to the nursery unless you choose so. Baby bath sinks easily accommodate a full tub bath. And, siblings, parents and grandparents are welcome to help.
A few days after you go home, we offer a free post-partum visit with a nurse to make sure you and baby are doing well, and to answer any questions.
Our free mother and baby support group meets Mondays, 10 a.m.-2 p.m., to answer questions, weigh your baby and offer lactation support. We also offer birthing and infant CPR classes.
