Birth Place at Sacred Heart

Sacred Heart Hospital offers premier maternity suites where mother and father can stay together through labor and delivery. In the homelike birthing room, the mother-to-be can labor, deliver, recover and receive postpartum care, even if she requires a cesarean. “Rooming-in” is encouraged. Counselors assist breastfeeding mothers.

Featuring private rooms only, The Birth Place is arranged in a sweeping semicircle with the nurses’ station at the hub. A state-of-the-art central monitoring system feeds continuous medical evaluations of mother and newborn to the station. Hydrotherapy in our Jacuzzi room eases the stress and pain of labor.

Newborns needing critical care receive it in our fully equipped Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. All babies born at The Birth Place undergo Auditory Brainstem Response (ABR) screening to check for hearing loss, a common condition which can otherwise go undetected for years. This noninvasive test can help identify problems and avoid developmental delays.

Varied educational opportunities are available for expectant families. To learn more, call 610-776-4755. We also encourage tours; call 610-776-4756 to schedule one.
