    Mom Delivery Room

    Congratulations! Having a baby is a joyous time. Your pregnancy and childbirth experience should be a treasured memory. Memorial University Medical Center is here to help.

    Your baby’s birth is an occasion for the whole family to share. Our patient- and family-centered care acknowledges the important role partners, siblings, grandparents, and extended family play in welcoming a new member of the family. They may visit you – two at a time – during labor and after delivery. In between, they may await the big moment in our comfortable waiting rooms.

    When you choose to deliver at Memorial University Medical Center, you are giving your baby the safest start. Most deliveries occur without incident, but if problems come up, you’re in the right place.

    Our Level III neonatal intensive care nursery is the only one in the region. We have a team of highly trained physicians, nurses, and other medical professionals who provide the highest level of care for you and your newborn.

    Make sure you’re prepared for your hospital visit.
