For more than 85 years, Wesley has helped welcome babies into the world. Our expertise has earned us a reputation as the premier hospital for obstetrical services. Whether your birth experience is normal or complications develop, we provide you and your baby the best care possible.

Wesley has two facilities where babies are born. The BirthCare Center, which is a separate building on the north side of Murdock, is designed for mothers who are expecting a low-risk birth. The birth rooms in Wesley Women’s Hospital (in Building 3 of Wesley Medical Center) are designed for more complicated births. Both facilities have the finest medical and nursing personnel and technology, and both welcome family and friends.

The birth of a child is one of the most exciting, fulfilling events life has to offer. Every baby is unique. Every mother and family is special. At Wesley, we’re here to help you make the birth of your baby the special occasion you want it to be. You can have a childbirth experience suited to your needs and wishes. The care you receive at Wesley is based on the philosophy that pregnancy, labor and birth are normal life events. Our role is to provide medical care when and if you need it. We avoid disturbing you with unnecessary medical procedures.

Wesley supports you, your family, and your friends, during and after birth. We encourage you and your doctor or certified nurse midwife to develop your own "birth plan," an outline of your wishes for your labor and delivery. You can make your own choices on matters such as pain management, birthing method, family involvement, and more. The first hour after your delivery is a protected time for you to hold your baby skin to skin, benefiting you and your baby.

Should you need handicap access or interpretive services, let us know, and we will ensure your needs are met. It is the policy of Wesley Medical Center not to discriminate on the basis of disability in admission or access to, or treatment or employment in, its programs and activities.
