When you’re preparing for a big event, it’s the little things that matter most, and you can find them at Jackson Hospital. From convenience and comfort to answers to your most important questions, we’ve got you covered.
The Family Birth Center at Jackson is conveniently located on the campus of Jackson Hospital.
Every labor, delivery and postpartum room is designed for the comfort and care of you, your baby and your extended family, and feels so much like home that you would hardly know that you are in one of Alabama’s most advanced obstetrical facilities.
When your baby is ready to make his or her grand entrance, you will find a smooth and effortless admission procedure. The result of planning between you, your physician and the Family Birth Center at Jackson means that you simply arrive at the center, and our well-trained staff will do the rest.
With our classes on everything from childbirth, to parenting, and breastfeeding, we prepare you for the journey ahead. If your newborn has big brothers or sisters, our siblings class helps them to be more comfortable with the new arrival. At the same time, we give parents and grandparents important tips on how to ensure a warm welcome for the baby. The result? Everyone feels involved and included in the biggest event of your family’s life. When you leave the Family Birth Center at Jackson, you’ll be well-prepared to handle the challenges and excitement of this new phase of your life. Of course, the friends you will make here at the Center are available to answer your questions after you go home.
Our experienced team of professionals will provide you with a safe and memorable experience. So don’t sweat all the little things. Instead, focus on the most important “little thing” of all—your newborn baby.
When you’re preparing for your family’s newest addition, it’s comforting to know you’ll be delivering in our state-of-the- art Birthing Center that offers the best care imaginable for your newborn. Our spacious labor, deliver and postpartum rooms have the latest equipment within easy reach so your physician can conduct your delivery without complications.
As you enter our stunning Family Birth Center at Jackson, you’ll be welcomed by a colorful, upbeat and inspirational mosaic mural, making your first impression one that lets you know you’ve arrived in a special place. You’ll feel relaxed by a light and airy color scheme balanced by cheerful accents of orchid, fresh green, rouge, sky blue and aqua. And because we believe that new life is new hope, we echo this sentiment with lush nature photography taken by local River Region photographers throughout the floor and in each room.
To enhance our focus on family-centered care, your room will have a family zone with comfortable sleeping and seating accommodations. In addition to maintaining a comfortable environment, safety remains our top priority with the latest beds, monitors and alert systems to give you peace of mind.
You also have the comfort of knowing that our Special Care Nursery is just steps away if needed. This nursery is staffed by a skilled team who specializes in the care of critically-ill newborns. You and your baby’s every need and comfort will be met by registered nurses and neonatologists who are available around the clock, as well as experienced respiratory therapists, radiologists and social workers.
Whether you are having your first baby or are adding to your growing family with a welcome addition, we understand what it means to be family. That’s why our own family of nurses and staff at the Family Birth Center at Jackson is focused on the comfort and well-being of your family and your baby. All of your concerns are addressed with kindness and compassion, as you’re guided through the delivery process and are put to ease before, during and after delivery.
At Jackson, our family puts your family first, and it shows. The number one reason mothers who have delivered at Jackson say they chose to do so is the compassionate care given by our staff, and that’s no accident. We treat your family like our own, and when it comes to family, we really deliver.

A New Life Can Save a Life
When mothers deliver at Jackson Hospital, they also have the opportunity to provide life-saving cord blood to someone in need.
Cord blood, rich with blood-forming stem cells, can help patients who are in need of a bone marrow transplant or cord blood transplant. Cord blood transplants (an alternative to bone marrow transplants) have successfully been used to treated cancers such as leukemia, lymphoma and sickle cell disease. After a patient’s diseased marrow is destroyed, the transplanted cord blood stem cells act like seeds to re-grow healthy, functioning marrow.
