Family Birth Center
The birth of a child is one of life's most amazing experiences. No two experiences are ever alike, that's why our experienced, supportive staff really listens to you to individualize your delivery to make your baby's birth safe, comfortable, and very special.
Comfortable and homelike birthing rooms are specficially designed for labor, delivery, and recovery. A separate whirlpool is also available for use. The inclusion of hydrotherapy offerings gives mothers the option of using the whirlpool, hand-held shower, or the noise of water in the background as a means of comfort.
The Perham Health birthing team includes family practitioners, an OB/GYN, and experienced nurses. Doctors care for women throughout their pregnancy, maintaining the same patient-doctor relationship through delivery.
During labor, the hospital offers a variety of methods to alleviate pain. We encourage you to choose the options for comfort that work best for you, or ask our experienced staff for assistance.
To help prepare for baby, childbirth education, infant massage classes, car seat safety,lactation counseling, and an educational newborn channel airing 24 hours a day are offered. Check out our Great Expectations page for more information.
To introduce your newest arrival to family and friends, you may choose to place your baby's picture in the Baby Book on our web site.
