Our full-service birthing center provides a family-centered approach
Congratulations on your pregnancy! The Phelps Maternal Child Center understands that every family wants an ideal childbirth experience. Phelps believes hospitals should include birthing options to fit every family, including those who want to deliver as naturally as possible. The Phelps maternal care team is dedicated to providing personalized care, and we’ll spend time getting to know you and your wishes for your care.
Our expert team of OB doctors and midwives is here to help you have a positive birth experience. Phelps has more midwives than any other local hospital. We know childbirth is a natural process, and we’re thrilled when our teams help mothers deliver babies in a safe, time-honored way. Monitoring is kept to a minimum, and you are welcome to choose a birthing position that feels right, as long as it’s safe for you and your baby.
At Phelps, you have the option to manage your pain with massage, hydrotherapy tubs, showers, and acupuncture. You may also choose traditional pain medications, including IV medicines or an epidural, if preferred. Our team will help you understand your options, so you feel empowered to make the choice that is right for you.
High-risk pregnancy? We can help
If your pregnancy is high-risk, or if you have complications during delivery, Phelps is here for you. It is normal to feel anxious during a high-risk delivery. Rest assured that we have assembled a top-notch team to care for you and your baby. All Maternal Child Center nurses are board-certified in fetal monitoring, and our doctors are experienced in handling complex cases.
If a C-section is required, surgery is performed in a special suite inside the Maternal Child Center. With the approval of your OB and anesthesiologist, a support person may stay with you during your procedure. Our surgery suite is clean and modern, and we are proud to have a very low rate of infections.
