What's the great thing about giving birth at Swedish Edmonds? Just about everything!

It’s a blend between a busier downtown hospital and a quieter community birth center that’s close to home. Best of all, the birthing suites have just been refreshed with new décor and furniture — and many have a relaxing view of the tall trees that surround the campus.

Our updated labor and delivery suites have birthing balls, squatting bars, sound systems, and there’s a Jacuzzi tub in every room. And the Swedish Edmonds nursing team knows just what to do to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

As a TeamBirth hospital, we want to support you through a safe and respectful birth experience. Learn more about TeamBirth and how we’re empowering you as the center of your care team.

When you deliver your baby at Swedish Edmonds, you'll have access to The Lytle Center for Pregnancy & Newborns. Even though it’s located at Swedish First Hill, Edmonds moms and dads are welcome to stop by or call for guidance all the way through your pregnancy, delivery, the first few weeks at home with baby, and beyond.

Breastfeeding support

Although it’s the most natural thing in the world, breastfeeding is something that both moms and babies need to learn together. Most of the time this happens quickly and easily. A great resource is our Lytle Center, where you can get help from our lactation specialists. Swedish also offers breastfeeding support groups and a breastfeeding class specifically for returning to work or school.

At Swedish Edmonds you’ll find a traditional gift shop near the cafeteria, plus The Stork Shop on the seventh floor in the Birth Center offers a full range of goods for moms and babies, including breastfeeding supplies. Call the gift shop for more information: 425-640-4349.

Professional photos are a great way to capture the early days with your baby. We offer optional photos through Bella Baby Photography

Your Bella Baby photo shoot will take place in the comfort and privacy of your hospital room. Afterward, you can have the photos posted to a password-protected site for sharing and ordering. They’ll be available for 14 days after the photos are taken. Each photo can be ordered in black and white, color, or sepia.

Tips for a great photo shoot
  • Bring a special blanket from home and wrap your baby in it during the photo shoot.
  • Parents’ hands are often incorporated into shots. Wear clear, neutral, or no nail polish to keep the focus on your baby.
  • Moms and dads should bring a solid black, brown or grey shirt to wear in photos where they are holding the baby. These shots look nice in color or black and white.
Web nursery

At our Edmonds campus, your baby’s photo can be posted on our Web Nursery site (with your permission, of course) so loved ones near and far can take a peek. For security reasons, Each baby’s photo will be listed by the mom’s first name and last initial. The Web Nursery service is provided free of charge.
