Family Birth Center
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, delivery 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.

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 treat 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 regrow healthy, functioning marrow.
