Congratulations on your upcoming arrival!

Expecting a newborn during the COVID-19 pandemic certainly adds stress to an already challenging time in a family’s life.

Our providers who care for newborns at Providence St. Peter Hospital (PSPH) will do our utmost to maintain the highest standards of care and safety for our patients and families. Our clinical practice of testing mothers is an important step to protecting our patients, caregivers and community from transmission of COVID-19. We appreciate your cooperation. Learn more.


Wherever you live in Southwest Washington, Providence is the place to have your baby. As expectant parents, you may be in the process of choosing the hospital where your baby will be born.

Your birthing experience

At the Providence St. Peter Hospital Family Birth Center, our focus is family-centered care, providing an atmosphere of warmth and nurturing supported by high-quality clinical care. We welcome your family and support partners to share in your birthing experience.

Our board-certified obstetricians/gynecologists, family practice physicians and certified midwives deliver 2,000 babies each year—more than any other hospital in the five-county area. And just in case your baby needs it, you’ll be reassured to know we have a Level II Special Care Nursery. Our experienced staff is trained to take care of pre-term babies, high-risk infants and babies with feeding or breathing problems.

Breastfeeding support and resources for you and your baby

Lactation consultations

We offer free lactation consultations to moms staying at the Family Birth Center. Our board-certified lactation consultant is available to assist with breastfeeding concerns and to help develop an initial feeding plan. Breast pump equipment is available to rent or purchase through Lullabies, the hospital’s gift shop for babies and moms.

There is a free drop in support group for breastfeeding moms that meets every Tuesday and Saturday from 2-4 p.m. in the Family Birth Center Classroom. We are asking that participants please call 360-486-4070 on the day of the meeting to confirm the group is meeting that day.

Mothers and infants are welcome to join the group at any time. Participants are encouraged to bring baby ready to feed.
