What to Expect
The Birthing Suite blends the best of both worlds, giving you and your family the opportunity for a low or no-intervention birth in a comfortable setting -- in a hospital. Located adjacent to the labor and delivery unit at Pennsylvania Hospital, the Birthing Suite offers easy access to state-of-the-art delivery and intensive care facilities.
Located on the third floor of the hospital's Preston Building, the Birthing Suite contains two birth rooms featuring many amenities to support a natural or low-intervention childbirth, including:
- 24/7 midwifery or obstetric care
- Private bathroom with shower
- Whirlpool bath and refreshment area (available in one room only)
- Comfortable chairs
- Soft décor
Talk to your provider at your next prenatal visit to see if the Birthing Suite is an appropriate delivery option for you.
