Family Birth Center

Your care starts here

The Family Birth Center at Jefferson Healthcare offers family centered birthing suites in our award winning medical facility which provides all the modern technology in a warm, caring, and supportive environment. Our families love the individualized attention, the private rooms, and the family-centered nursing staff.

Comforts of home

Our family birthing suites feature refrigerators, televisions, CD players, soaking tubs, and large private showers – some with beautiful views of the mountains and water.

Support

Your partner or spouse is encouraged to stay with you throughout your labor and delivery. Your baby will room in with you, and siblings are always welcome when accompanied by an adult.

Comfort

Soaking tubs for hydrotherapy; telemetric fetal monitoring, so you can walk and have a high level of mobility during fetal monitoring; and nurse anesthetists fully trained in pain management approaches.

Childbirth classes

Free childbirth classes cover early and active labor, comfort measures, pain management, newborn care, early parenthood, breast feeding and baby safety.  Learn more  Online registration

COVID-19 Update

A midwife or trained doula may be present during labor and initial transitional support.  The midwife/trained doula will be in addition to the consistent support partner.  It is expected that the midwife/trained doula wear appropriate PPE (hospital provided) and strictly follow visitation guidelines.

Baby Friendly Hospital

Jefferson Healthcare is designated as a Baby Friendly Hospital, the fifth in the State of Washington to achieve this certification. The World Health Organization confirms that Jefferson Healthcare’s Family Birth Center staff of registered nurses and physicians will provide a unique and critical link between the breast feeding support for the mother prior to and after delivery. Only 5% of hospitals in the United States have been able to successfully achieve this designation.

 

 

 

“She is our first and they helped us in changing her diaper, holding her, feeding her, swaddling her (yes, it’s as hard as it looks!) and eased my worries as a new mom.  It was truly wonderful.”  – Allison, new mom
