Women's and children's services
Women’s and Children’s Services at the Lourdes Birthing Center help you design a memorable birth experience. Having a baby is one of the most sacred moments in life. You need a hospital that is attentive to your individual choices for your baby's birth, a place where doctors, midwives and nurses support you and your family in developing a birthing plan to create your own personalized birthing experience. That is what you will find at The Birthing Center at Lourdes in Binghamton, New York.
When you choose to have your baby at Lourdes, you become a part of our family-centered approach to maternity care. Our highly trained, caring, maternity team has years of experience in delivering healthy babies. We consider birth a profound emotional, social, and spiritual event and the care we provide touches the entire family. All of our nurses are certified in Neonatal Resuscitation. We want to get to know you and your family and be there for you from prenatal education right through delivery.
Our birthing center provides a home-like environment. Each of our birthing suites allows the family to experience the entire process of labor, delivery, and recovery in one spacious, private room and you will remain in a private room throughout your entire stay.
