Birthing Center

(Obstetric/Maternity Department)

The Birthing Center at Van Buren County Hospital embraces a family-centered philosophy, encouraging the participation of all family members and/or friends in the birthing experience.  

Our goal is to provide health care, support, and security for the new mother, baby and family as they adjust to their new roles. Prenatal classes are held two times a year for four consecutive weeks.

Information is given regarding discomforts with pregnancy, understanding labor and delivery and what to expect when caring for your newborn.

For information regarding the classes, contact Shelly Heald at 319-293-3171.

If you speak another language, assistance services, free of charge, are available to you. Call 1-319-293-8709
