Pre-Birth Childbirth Center Tours
To help you feel prepared for the birth of your baby we invite you to take a pre-birth childbirth center tour 4 - 8 weeks before your due date. This free tour includes a walking tour of the childbirth center so you will know exactly where to go when you come to the hospital in labor. We’ll also provide information on all the resources available for expectant and new parents. Following the tour, you will have the opportunity to ask questions and complete paperwork for preadmission.
