Family Birth Center 

The birth of your child is one of the most important events in your life --- and we treat it that way. Our birth center has 13 rooms equipped for labor, delivery, recovery, and mother-baby care, so you and your support person can stay in your room before, during, and after your delivery. As you prepare for the birth of your child, we thought you might like to know some of the things we believe at the Family Birth Center...

  • Birth is one of life's most special events.
  • Birth and parenting occur with greater ease, comfort, and joy when parents know what to expect.
  • Parents can make decisions and accept responsibility for their own healthcare.
  • Family, visitors, nurses, doctors, healthcare providers, and all hospital personnel are regarded with dignity and respect.
  • Your support person should be encouraged to stay with you and your baby throughout your hospital stay.

You should also know that Community Hospital is officially Baby-FriendlyTM. The "Baby-FriendlyTM USA" Hospital Initiative is a global program sponsored by the World Health Organization and United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF). Based on those groups' Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding, the Baby-FriendlyTM designation is awarded to birth centers that offer breastfeeding mothers help and information for gaining the skills and confidence needed to successfully initiate and continue breastfeeding.
