Labor and delivery at our birthing center

Our Family Birth Place staff includes a laborist, who is an in-house, 24/7 obstetrician gynecologist (OBGYN) employed by our hospital to care for laboring patients. This physician will not take the place of your own primary OB/GYN, if you have one, but is there to assist as needed and to manage obstetric emergencies and walk-in patients.
