If you'd like to have your baby at Swedish, let us help you find a doctor or midwife. More about types of providers.
Since Babies Don’t Come With an Instruction Manual, We’ve Got the Next Best Things.
Whether you’re expecting your first baby or your third, there’s a lot to think about. But you don’t have to think about where to find the information you’ll need. It’s all right here at Swedish.
If you’re still trying to decide where you’d like to have your baby, every one of our birth centers holds frequent Birth Center Tours so you can see what each campus is like up close. You’ll be able to tour the birth centers, see the labor and delivery rooms, and get answers to all your questions.
Next, you’ll probably want to look into Childbirth, Parenting & Family Classes, where you (and other family members) can learn how to prepare for your new arrival, and then care for her during her earliest days.
If those early preparations include finding a doctor or midwife to care for you during your pregnancy and deliver your baby, then you might want to check out one of Swedish’s OB Speed Dating events. You’ll get to meet several providers in one evening so you can decide if the chemistry’s right for a follow-up appointment.
