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.

 Our recently renovated and secure Birth Center includes three labor and delivery rooms designed for the ultimate comfort and safety of mom and baby, with amenities including a whirlpool tub, a large screen “entertainment” center, and a sleeper sofa for the new mom’s partner.

When you’re expecting, you expect the best: a culture of extraordinary patient care, skilled physicians and support staff, a personalized birth plan, and an exceptional and memorable birth care experience.

A new mother’s testimonial … “During the whole labor, delivery, and postpartum stay, we were very supported and encouraged with not only words, but also with actions, which really makes a difference! This was shown in many ways, but one thing that really stuck out was how everyone in the Birth Center respected our preferences for our birth, and in turn, we felt as though we could easily respect their advice and encouragement as professionals.”
