About The Family Birth Center
DELIVERING THE LOVING TOUCH
At the Family Birth Center we believe each birth is a special delivery. We want you to have the best experience possible based on your wishes. The birthing rooms at the Family Birth Center have been designed to create a relaxed, home-like environment, while still providing state-of-the-art monitoring and medical care.
To help you become better acquainted with the Family Birth Center, we offer a pre-birth clinic. At this time you and your partner can visit with the Family Birth Center staff, complete necessary paperwork, review procedures, and let us know of any special requests you may have about your delivery. Please contact us approximately four weeks prior to your delivery date to schedule your appointment.
To help you feel more comfortable during your stay, you may bring your own pillows or other personal effects to help you relax. For your enjoyment, each birthing suite is furnished with a television and CD, DVD, and VHS players with surround sound. We have a limited selection of CDs and DVDs or you may bring your own.
At your request, visitors will be allowed in the birthing room while you are in labor. The number of visitors in attendance may be limited at your request, or in special circumstances, by your physician or nurse.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED TO BRING TO THE HOSPITAL
• Comfortable clothing for yourself, including a bathrobe and slippers.
• Personal items including shampoo, soap, cosmetics, toothpaste, and toothbrush.
• Clothes for the baby to wear home.
• Anything else that may make your stay more comfortable.
