Opting to have your baby at The BirthPlace is a smart choice. You will receive the personalized, patient-centered care you deserve with all of the services, education and support you expect. We deliver high quality, compassionate care to every baby, mother and family. There’s no other day quite like the birth day, and we are here to help make it special.
Our Hospitalist program ensures that there is always a qualified doctor on hand. Board-certified obstetricians are available after office hours and around the clock during weekends. Pediatric hospitalists are also available 24 hours a day.
Our experienced and dedicated team of obstetricians and pediatric hospitalists is prepared to respond to unexpected emergencies and work together with highly specialized neonatologists who we share with the local children’s hospital.
Should you deliver a preterm baby at 32 weeks who is as little as 3.3 pounds, our staff will provide the very best care for your newborn in our Level II Nursery, equipped with everything necessary to care for little ones who have stabilized, but need to stay in the hospital a bit longer before they are ready to go home.
When mothers are discharged while baby is still in the Level II Nursery, a Rest Easy room can be reserved for the comfort and convenience of our parents. Its queen sized bed with a television, sink and attached restroom are located right across from the nursery.
This informative class consists of lectures, videos, discussions and exercises, all led by a trained childbirth instructor. Our goal is to provide you with information and resources to help you make informed decisions and minimize your fears prior to your baby’s birth, through labor and early postpartum. Register for the four day Childbirth Prep Class or one day Childbirth Prep Class.
