Our Family Birthplace encourages and supports each mother through their labor and delivery. Each person’s experience is different and unique, it is an honor and privilege to be there with you during the process.
Our private birthing suites and postpartum rooms blend the comforts of home with the safety of the hospital. We offer private rooms, whirlpool tubs, family amenities and room service. Each room has a large window, private bathroom, rocking chair and a sleeping couch for those who want to stay with mother and child.
We stand with the evidence that breastfeeding is best for you and your baby and are committed to making your breastfeeding experience positive. We have trained lactation consultants on staff to help assist mothers in breastfeeding.
The Journey Through Parenthood Program is designed to help you during this exciting time in your life. After you call and sign up for the program, we will send you a packet of information designed to fit your needs and set up a visit at the Family Birthplace. During the visit you can start to fill out your paperwork, learn about the services we offer and discuss your birth plan. You will also receive a tour of the Family Birthplace. You will have the opportunity to pre-register, streamlining your arrival when you come in during labor
Lactation consultants teach mothers how to feed their baby. They help women with breastfeeding problems, such as latching difficulties, painful nursing, and low milk supply. A lactation consultant may also help babies who aren’t gaining enough weight.
A lactation consultant is available by appointment Mondays and Thursdays between the times of 1 pm and 3 pm. Call 715-934-4847 for assistance.
