Your Baby’s Place of Birth? Swedish.

The Seattle metropolitan area is a wonderful place to live. And when it comes to having a baby here, we’ve got four wonderful birth centers to choose from. So how do you decide?

The old real estate rule of location, location, location also holds true for birth centers. Since you never know how fast your labor will be, you’ll want your destination to be close by. Swedish has four birth centers — Ballard, First Hill, Issaquah and Edmonds — making it convenient for people who live or work in the Seattle, Eastside and North end areas.

Beyond location, you’ll want to consider other important factors. Would you like a birth center with a smaller, more boutique-like feel, a bustling city hospital with every possible resource, or maybe something in between?
