Family Birth & Obstetrics

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.

Steps to ensure your safety

Every person entering our hospital and clinics is screened for temperature and respiratory illness symptoms.  Universal Masking is in place for all patients, visitors, and employees.  Exam rooms and waiting areas receive extra cleanings and we have created physical distancing between patients.

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

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
