UMC Family Birth Center
The mission of Family-Centered Maternity Care is to provide a unique birth experience with an emphasis on quality and compassion in a family-centered environment, all while keeping in mind the goal to achieve a healthy outcome for the whole family.
UMC’s atmosphere has shifted in order for family members to enjoy the same comfort and conveniences as patients, including sofas, a lounge, and much more. There is even a new entrance specially designed to be used exclusively for expecting and new mothers.
It is a comfort, as well as a benefit, having your family close by. The father, or chosen support givers, receive better education and can help you care for your baby in the hospital as well as at home.
