The Maternity Center offers families a safe alternative to home delivery.

Five private labor and delivery rooms, each with its own private whirlpool tub, offer a cheerful and home-like environment. Delivery options include having family members present at the birth and the use of midwives and doulas.

Dads are welcome to stay overnight, and rooming-in with baby is mom and dad’s choice. HVHC also has a NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit), Level 2 nursery that can care for premature or seriously ill babies should complications arise. About 1,000 babies are delivered each year at HVHC.
