Birth Care

A lifetime of care starts here.

When you’re expecting, you expect the best. When you’re raising a family, you want patient-centered medical care. Trust us to deliver both. For a lifetime.

From women’s health to fertility care services … prenatal to postpartum care … labor and delivery to pediatric care for your growing family … our team of family medicine providers, including these doctors who offer fertility, prenatal, and birth care, are here for you. To ensure the very best start for your baby.

Our medical team crosses multiple generations and special interests. They partner with women

and couples to offer a very personalized approach to fertility, conception, pregnancy, labor, and delivery. This “OB team” also includes a skilled, compassionate nursing staff – from the clinic to our birth center – as well as lactation consultants, physical therapists, and surgeons and anesthetists should the need for a C-section or pain management arise.

Our Birth Center

Caring for babies – from conception through pregnancy, birth, and after the special delivery – has always been an important privilege and aspect of care at Orange City Area Health System. A safe birth – for both baby and mom – is our highest priority. Our next priority when it comes to birthcare is to provide a personalized experience in a comfortable and pleasant environment for the entire family to celebrate the new arrival. These priorities – combined with skilled and compassionate hospital staff – have resulted in annual births in the low to mid 200’s, representing families from 33 zip codes in the region.

 To continue to serve our obstetrics patients in this manner, the health system renovated our Birth Center in early 2020. There are three primary elements to the Birth Center expansion and renovation.

First, we added a third labor and delivery room to accommodate the increased number of births in our hospital. All of our labor and delivery rooms have a fresh look and appreciated amenities including a whirlpool tub, a large screen “entertainment” center, and a sleeper sofa for the new mom’s partner.

The second modification was enhancing security to the Birth Center. Access to the wing is secured, and visitors are required to check in at the hospital nurse’s station.

Third, the entire Birth Center received a “facelift” – with new flooring, furniture, wall coverings, and a comfortable, bright, convenient family area with a nourishment center.

These renovations, combined with our culture of extraordinary patient care, and skilled physicians and support staff, provide an exceptional and memorable birth care experience.
