This is a two hour informational only orientation which is mandatory for any patient considering delivering her baby inside the Birthing Center at St.Thomas Midtown Hospital. Our Birthing Center is designed to provide highly personalized care for the mother who wishes to deliver naturally (without anesthesia) with the comforts of home alongside the latest technology. This orientation will provide the expectant mother and her support person with an overview of the Birthing Center guidelines and a tour of the facility. Before registering for this orientation, contact your prenatal care provider to ensure he/she has delivering privileges at St.Thomas Midtown and considers your pregnancy to be low risk which will determine if you're a proper candidate.  Please also remember to preregister as a patient to the hospital by the time you are 35 weeks pregnant. That is done through our online website:

If you have questions that must be addressed before your orientation date, please call the Family Learning Center staff at 615-284-2229.

The orientation fee includes both the patient and her support person. 

All registration questions must be answered to submit your registration. 

*This is NOT a childbirth education class, BUT please make sure you are preparing for a natural birth by attending a childbirth education class or have had a previous natural delivery.
