Family Birth Center
Mercy’s Family Birth Center is a comfortable, family-centered environment staffed by dedicated professionals who are here to guide and support you every step of the way, from pregnancy through giving birth.
We are committed to helping you be the best parent you can be—think of us as your wellness partner before, during, and after pregnancy. We offer parenting and childbirth classes for moms-to-be and their partners. Our childbirth classes will help you prepare for the new addition to your family, starting with the experience of giving birth. The more you know, the more relaxed you will be when the time comes. Parenting classes will give you the knowledge and skills you will need to confidently care for your baby.

Giving Birth at Mercy
The Family Birth Center suites at Mercy Hospital Southwest are designed for the comfort and care of you and your baby. Our private suites are spacious and modern. They feature adjustable beds and a bathroom with a shower as well as a state-of-the-art fetal monitoring system among other equipment necessary to provide quality care for you and your baby. Each suite also includes comfortable pull out furniture for an overnight guest. Free Wi-Fi is available.
We want your birth experience to be as comfortable as possible. Your pain will be monitored closely and options for pain control will be available to you. For mothers-to-be that are planning to have an epidural, there is an anesthesiologist in-house—not just on call—24-hours a day who can respond quickly when it’s time.
Our team has the training and technical resources to respond to unexpected or special needs. Surgical suites designed for complicated deliveries and cesarean sections are located very close to the Family Birth Center. This allows you and your physician the comfort of knowing that they can be accessed immediately if a cesarean section should become necessary.
