Family Birth Center

The best care for your baby and growing family.

At the Gritman Family Birth Center, our goal is to make families feel comfortable and safe before, during and after delivery. Our birthing rooms create a relaxed, home-like environment where the expecting mother’s personal touches are welcomed and encouraged. And our separate, private recovery rooms allow for quiet and calm as you welcome your new arrival. In addition to a loving, highly skilled OB nursing staff, state-of-the-art monitoring and medical equipment ensure our patients receive the best possible birthing and postpartum experience.

Meet Our New Arrivals

A Modern, Spacious and Private Facility

Our birth center is in a separate wing of the hospital that’s secured 24/7 for your privacy security. Our labor and delivery suites are located on one side of the nurse’s station with the postpartum recovery suites conveniently located right around the corner, making it a peaceful place for new families to bond.

Providing a Safe, Secure Experience

Your newborn’s health, security and safety are our top priority. Gritman offers state-of-the-art medical and physical security measures, ensuring that anyone entering the Family Birth Center is cleared by our nursing staff. Each baby receives a coded ankle bracelet that will set off department-wide alarms if it nears an exit door or is tampered with in any way. If the alarms are triggered, the Family Birth Center is automatically locked down, and a hospital-wide emergency alert is activated.

What to Bring

A photo ID (driver’s license or another ID)
Your insurance card
Any hospital paperwork you need
Your birth plan
Your cell phone and charger
Eyeglasses (you may prefer them over contacts in the hospital)

A Birth Plan and Experience Centered on You

Your birth plan is shared with all the members of your care team so everyone knows what you want—and don’t want—from your birth experience.

Our nursing staff works with you in advance of your delivery to learn about your preferences and build a birth plan. And even when things don’t go according to plan, Gritman is always ready for the unexpected.

New moms love our large, modern labor and delivery rooms as well as the privacy and comfort of our postpartum recovery suites. But they also appreciate the advanced, life-saving technology that’s always within reach.

Real Gritman parents Jessica and Siua: “The Gritman staff were like angels.”

Real Gritman parents Meggie and David: “Our Gritman experience was more than we could have hoped for.”

Visitor’s Information

At your request, visitors will be allowed in the birthing suite while you are in labor. The number of visitors may be limited at your request, or in special circumstances, by your physician or nurse.

Capturing the Experience

Gritman is happy to allow still photography throughout labor and delivery, so long as it does not interfere with the medical needs of you and your new baby. Videography is happily welcomed before delivery and after both mom and baby are stable, but is not permitted during delivery.
