At the St. Thomas More Birth Center, families enjoy welcoming each little miracle into their lives. The obstetric nurses and physicians are honored to be part of this special time in your life. They provide quality care for mom and baby in a beautiful environment, close to family and friends.
When it comes to delivering your baby, there’s no place like home.
Our beautiful birth center provides a warm, welcoming environment with soothing colors that promote relaxation and healing. It features large, private labor and delivery rooms each with state-of-the-art fetal monitoring equipment and a private restroom with walk-in showers to maximize moms’ comfort; private postpartum rooms each with a private restroom; an enlarged newborn stabilization nursery; nurses’ station; and physician dictation room.
Safety and security is a top priority. All visitors use a doorbell system for entrance, and babies are linked to the Hugs tag system, the leading provider of newborn security.
With an innovative, dedicated cesarean section operating room located within the Birth Center, all areas are tucked comfortably close to the nurses’ station for round-the-clock, comforting care.
