The birth of your child is a special occasion, with memories to treasure for a lifetime. Our nursing and support staff work with you and your physician to provide a birth experience that we hope will meet your every expectation.
At the Family Birth Center, we provide the support that allows you to have your baby your way. We have private rooms with special decorations, bassinets and chairs that provide a comfortable environment in which to welcome the newest member of your family.
Our team has the training and technical resources to respond to unexpected or special needs. The Family Birth Center has surgical suites designed for complicated deliveries and cesarean sections.
With an anesthesiologist in-house 24-hours a day and a team of specialists available, we are able to determine if there is a problem and respond immediately.
The Family Birth Center at Mercy Southwest Hospital has a neonatal intensive care unit for premature babies, as well as infants who require a higher level of support at birth.
We are committed to helping you be the best parent you can be - from providing a safe childbirth experience to sharing information you can use to welcome your baby home.
After your baby is born, we do a number of screenings to ensure you have a healthy baby. Mercy Southwest Hospital has the most accurate newborn hearing screening methods available today.
Education is an essential element to our total care package. Classes support the needs of parents, siblings and loved ones who are involved in the baby's delivery and care.
