The birth of a baby is a special time. Each experience is unique and brings its own special needs. Recognizing that no two births are alike, the Birthing Center, part of the Women's and Infants' Center offers highly personalized care and the support needed throughout pregnancy, labor, delivery, and the postpartum period. Women who designate the Women's and Infants' Center as their choice for delivery receive information on all aspects of the birth experience. Our nurses are available before delivery and remain available throughout the postpartum period to answer your questions on the birth experience and new parenting issues.
For more information about starting a family, designing a birth plan or just if you have questions, we’re here to help. Visit the women's and infant's section at: www.prevea.comExercise Your Birthing Options
