Pre-Admission Appointments at the Family Birthing Center
We want your birth experience to be one of the most memorable moments of your life and want to help prepare you for that day. Making an appointment to come to the Family Birthing Center 1-4 weeks before your anticipated birth is an important part of that preparation. You will sign consent forms, learn about procedures on our unit, get a tour of the secure facilities, and have an opportunity to ask questions. Knowing what to bring, where to go, and who to call can greatly relieve your anxieties!
We count it a privilege to care for you and share this special experience with you. Thank you for choosing the Family Birthing Center at NMC Health!
