Whether you are a first-time or experienced mom, the doctors, midwives and nursing team at the CMH Family Birthing Center are committed to helping you and your family having the best labor and birth experience possible.
While pregnancy and birth are a natural part of life, we recommend that you receive prenatal care starting early in your pregnancy. Doing so helps to give your baby the best possible start.
During your prenatal care visits at the CMH Women’s Center, you will meet our team of obstetricians and nurse midwives. You will also be encouraged to take prenatal classes. These classes are free to women who plan to deliver their baby at the CMH Family Birthing Center.
You may call the CMH Family Birthing Center before your baby is born to schedule a tour 503-338-7581.
We offer many drug-free options to help you manage pain during labor including birthing balls, squat bars, Jacuzzi tub, showers, aromatherapy, massage, doula services (pre-arranged), and telemetry fetal monitoring (which allows you the freedom to move while tracking the baby’s heartbeat). We also understand and support women who choose a medicated birth with IV medications or epidurals.
You and your baby are in good hands at the CMH Family Birthing Center. Our obstetricians and nurse midwives are supported around the clock by the anesthesia team and CMH pediatricians. The nursing staff is specialty trained in labor, delivery, neonatal resuscitation, neonatal stabilization, postpartum and breastfeeding care.
