  • Secured, single entrance and an infant security system;
  • Easy access to the hospital gift shop and cafeteria.

The Family Birth Center also offers:

  • Childbirth classes
  • Breastfeeding clinic


Our nursing staff introduces the new mother to the natural process of breastfeeding. We have a Lactation consultant available if the new mother may need assistance.  


We ask that your family members and visitors come to see you between 7:00 am and 9:00 am and from 4:00 - 10:00 pm. Quiet hours will be from 9:00 am - 11:00 am and from 2:00 - 4:00 pm. This will allow new parents to bond and rest. We feel it is important for our patients and their families to get their rest for optimal healing.

When you visit the Family Birth Center you will see a number of video cameras throughout the department. These cameras monitor the entire unit. All exits have alarms that are activated if someone exits the building. We want our new parents to feel secure that their baby is safe.
