For more than 60 years, Santiam Hospital has been providing high-quality care for Oregon residents in the Mid-Willamette Valley area. One of the hospital’s premier features is the Family Birth Center, where its nurturing and experienced OB birth team will make your baby’s arrival an incredible and joyous experience.
The OB team at Santiam Hospital’s Family Birth Center shares some reasons why you may want to choose a birth center to deliver your baby:
- Your OB Team Delivers: Relax in knowing that your OB team—the OBGYNs you visit and their medical team—will be there for you during your delivery every step of the way. You will never be lost in the shuffle at the Family Birth Center.
- Private Experience: Our Birth Center is designed with you in mind. We have tailored our services around the mother, the baby, and family. You will labor, deliver, and recover in the same room with your baby and family member. Parents have their own private patient rooms at the Family Birth Center, so you can take advantage of the at-home amenities and enjoy the first blissful hours with your child in the comfort and relaxation of a peaceful and secluded atmosphere.
- Options For Everyone: The Family Birth Center features specialized care options tailored to you and your baby. If you wish to labor in water, you can take advantage of your room’s spacious tub in your Labor & Delivery Suite. You also have the freedom to use an exercise ball or opt for medications. If needed, the Family Birth Center is also fully equipped to perform C-sections on the same floor as the Labor & Delivery Suites.
- Optimal Family Bonding: Our OB team at the Family Birth Center understands and values the importance of family bonding following birth. You will be provided as much assistance as needed or desired with breastfeeding and other post-natal activities, giving your family the utmost respect for this special time shared between you and your new baby.
In addition to the Family Birth Center, Santiam Hospital also has a Women’s Health Clinic so you can receive complete reproductive and obstetrics care all in one convenient location.
