Breidegam Family Birthing Center: Our All Deliveries Are Special Deliveries.

The Breidegam Family Birthing Center opened in 2006 and offers state-of-the-art care to expectant mothers and newborns. The Center includes 15 private maternity suites (six of them dedicated to cesarean section patients) in which mothers and babies are cared for together. Our 6 bed, Level IIIA state-licensed neonatal intensive care nursery is located nearby for infants who have special health needs following birth.

Once you enter our home-inspired birthing suites you will feel at ease; this will be your room for the duration of your stay with us. Also known as LDRP, you will labor, deliver, recover and stay in one private room. Each room is equipped with a whirlpool tub that can be used for relaxation during labor, or for pampering after delivery.

There is a sofa bed in your suite for your support person to stay with you. Your suite also includes free Wi-Fi and a flat screen TV. When you leave us, we have lovely parting gifts in a tote bag designed specifically by your baby!

Our caring, well-trained staff is there to assist you through each stage of labor, delivery, and post-delivery care so that you feel confident in bringing your baby home. Our Lactation Consultant and staff promote skin-to-skin care to help your newborn transition into the world. Mothers who choose breastfeeding are supported throughout their stay to reach their personal goals. Mothers are comforted to know that their baby is asleep beside the bed, being able to respond quickly if the little one needs attention.

Whether this is your first baby or the next expansion of your family, we invite you to see why we make all births special!
