• Caring For You, Caring For Your Baby

    When it's time for your baby to come into the world, let your miracle start at Dominican Hospital, where comfort and technology combine to embrace you and your family.

Birth Center

Dominican Hospital offers comfortable labor and delivery, recovery and postpartum rooms for you and your family. We know how important it is to have your loved ones around you, especially at this special time of life. Family members can spend the night on a pull-out bed; even siblings can be present during the birth of your new baby, should you desire.

Additional Birth Center Features

  • Our Birth Center is a locked secure unit—matching armbands will be placed on you, your baby and your support person. Your baby will also wear an alarm-activated ankle monitor
  • Lactation and breastfeeding support—while at the Birth Center and follow-up care after you go home
  • Comfortable overnight sleeping accommodations for your support person
  • Free WiFi in the Birth Center and throughout the hospital
  • Each labor suite includes a TV, DVD player, stereo, and refrigerator
  • Our postpartum rooms have been designed with double beds, a table with chairs, and couches to encourage comfortable “rooming in” with your infant, so your baby can stay in your room to facilitate bonding.
