In case of a complication, feel peace of mind knowing that you and your baby have fast access to expert emergency care.

Your BirthCenter Suite

Deliver your baby in a private room and stay in the same room while you get to know your baby and recovery. 

Labor, Delivery, Recovery, & Postpartum (LDRP) Care

Single-room maternity care, also known as Labor, Deliver, Recovery and Postpartum (LDRP) care, is standard at OMC BirthCenter. Unless in need of emergency care, expectant moms never change rooms. Each of our private rooms is warmly decorated and provides a comfortable environment for mom, baby, and family.

Rooming In

Rooming in means you and your baby will stay in the same room as much as possible so you can bond and nurture your little one through your voice and touch. Rooming in also helps your family members spend time with your baby.

Room Service

Receive “on demand” room service. Call and request your choice of meals and have them delivered to your room at times that work best for you.

Customized, Nutritious Meals

A registered dietitian will plan your menu and prepare your food fresh onsite. Let your care team know of any special dietary restrictions, including food intolerances, allergies, and cultural/religious preferences.

Celebration Dinner

Enjoy a free special meal the night before you leave the hospital as a celebration of your new baby.

BirthCenter Visiting Hours

To make sure you have the support you need from family members, as well as the best clinical care, family visitors are welcome at the BirthCenter from 1:00 to 9:00 p.m. each day.
