Indian Path Medical Center Family Birth Center

 

Indian Path’s Family Childbirth Center provides family-centered, single-room maternity care, also known as LDRP. For most patients, this means labor, delivery, recovery and postpartum care happen in the same, comfortable room. Our rooms are beautifully decorated and also have the latest monitoring equipment. 

Experienced obstetric and newborn nurses provide skillful attention. Neonatologists, specialists in the care of special-care newborns, are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week if needed. Should a Caesarean birth be needed, fully equipped OB surgical suites are located inside the Family Childbirth Center.

Our caring staff and a calm, intimate atmosphere are waiting for you at the Family Childbirth Center. If you have any questions about our Family Birth Center or need to register for classes, please give us a call. 423-857-7240.
