Birthing Options

Being informed about your options well in advance of your delivery can help make your birth experience the best it can be. You can make the most of your birth experience by learning about all the choices that are available to you, choices such as:

  • Environment within the birthing suite (see photos of the Family Birth Center
  • Relaxation, laboring, coping techniques
  • Pain management approaches
  • Vaginal birth
  • Cesarean birth
  • Newborn care
  • Level II Special Care Nursery on-site in Eau Claire
  • Bringing baby home
  • Arranging for well-baby care with a pediatrician or family care provider if delivering with an OB/GYN or certified nurse-midwife

Our nurses will meet with you to develop your birthing plan and complete the pre-admission process. If you are pregnant, call 715-233-7237 to make an appointment.
