​For more than 50 years, Memorial’s approach to maternity care has made us one of this area’s leading maternity service providers. You, your baby, and your family members are very important to us, and The Family Care Birthing Center at Memorial is proud to be an integral part of more than 1,500 births annually.

As leaders in family-centered maternity care, The Family Care Birthing Center’s mission is to provide a compassionate, family-centered, unique birth experience as an advocate for informed choice and quality care.

Our philosophy

At The Family Care Birthing Center, we celebrate each family-centered birth by:

  • Upholding the dignity of all expectant mothers and their families
  • Preparing the expectant family for a memorable birth experience
  • Celebrating birth as one of a family’s most special events
  • Promoting breastfeeding for the benefits of mother and baby
  • Encouraging and nurturing the development of your family
