Our birthing suites

At The Family Center, we have prepared an environment that will enrich the birth experience for you and your family. Our beautifully decorated birthing suites provide a comforting atmosphere for expectant parents. In addition to the many amenities in these home-like suites, we offer advanced technology to ensure the highest level of care for you and your baby.

Family-centered care

A unique aspect of The Family Center is our “Shared Care” program. With this innovative childbirth care program, one nurse is assigned to each mom and baby. This nurse serves as a consistent, familiar and knowledgeable resource for medical care, instruction and guidance.

The Family Center's Shared Care approach promotes individualized attention and personal counseling. With Shared Care, we hope to reduce patient anxiety, enhance familial bonding and educate patients on how to keep their new babies happy, healthy and safe.

Babies are welcome to stay with their mothers for as long as the mother desires. We also encourage partners, siblings and friends to visit. We do this so that families can get to know each other and bond.

Maternity classes

We offer several programs designed to provide expectant parents with valuable information for pregnancy and childbirth. All programs include a tour of The Family Center.

We host many maternity classes, and we also provide a four-part series, The Prepared Childbirth Program. The Prepared Childbirth Program is a series of four classes, which provides information about labor and birth. In the series, mothers and/or couples practice relaxation and other techniques to facilitate a positive birth experience.

Childbirth tours

We encourage expectant parents to take a Family Center Tour to see if our home-like atmosphere best suits their needs. A member of The Family Center staff conducts each tour to help patients understand what they can expect—from admission to discharge.

We also offer virtual tours of the following facilities:
