Birth Center

Supporting your birth, your way.

Your needs come first at Regions Birth Center

Our care teams honor and support your choices and traditions. That’s why we offer a range of innovative birth services, like nitrous oxide, hydrotherapy, aromatherapy and donor breast milk. If you have a low-risk pregnancy, you can have a natural birth or water birth. If you have a more complex pregnancy, our expert team will take care of your unique needs.

Whatever your birth plan, Regions is the place to be. We have everything covered – including things you’ve never even thought of. Doctors and midwives are here 24/7, so we’ll be ready to deliver your baby when you are. We can perform cesarean deliveries, if necessary. Additionally, we have a high rate of vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC) deliveries. We also have a special care nursery for babies needing extra care.

Services we provide:

  • Prenatal classes
  • Birthing rooms
  • Cesarean deliveries, if necessary
  • 24/7 nursing care
  • Integrative care
  • Hydrotherapy

Caring for you and baby after delivery

After your delivery, you’ll be moved to a comfortable, private post-delivery room. Your baby will be in the room with you so you can share first moments, have skin-to-skin contact and bond. There’s also a pullout sleep chair for your significant other or family member.

If your newborn needs extra care and observation, they’ll be close by in our special care nursery. A team of doctors and nurses specialized in treating premature and sick babies will be at your baby’s side. They’ll work to get your little one home as soon as possible.

Our nurses are available 24/7 to answer questions and care for you and your new baby. If you plan on breastfeeding, our lactation consultants offer education and support during and after your stay.
