St. Charles Birthing Center for Encouraging & Supportive Care 

Finding the right place to bring your little one into the world can set the tone for your birthing experience. Suppose the idea of a calm, inviting private room with natural light, space for your support, and maybe even a jacuzzi to labor in sounds like the perfect setting. In that case, you want to deliver at St. Charles Birthing Center. When you choose to deliver at a birthing center, you choose comfort, less intervention, more birthing freedom for movement, more support, and more. But what makes St. Charles Birthing Center the right center to entrust your birthing story with? 

About St. Charles Birthing Center

The professional Health Care teams at both family birthing centers, Bend and Madras, enjoy helping others start and grow their beautiful families. They strive to provide a supportive, encouraging, and enjoyable environment for families to prepare and bring their little ones into the world with confidence. St. Charles Birthing Center’s goal is to give each baby the best possible start with resources and guidance for the expecting family.

They have a full range of obstetrical services at both birthing centers, as well as all newly designed private bathing suites full of comfort and equipped with everything you need for labor and delivery. 

Their teams are big supporters of families making informed choices, so they provide the following: 

  • education on breastfeeding, 
  • the importance of mother and baby bonding, and 
  • prenatal classes to help you prepare. 

Their phenomenal nursing staff has the skills and ability to provide all the expertise. They support you with everything you could possibly need during your unique and amazing labor, delivery, and even postpartum recovery, all in the comfort of your birthing suite. These birthing suites aim to help laboring mothers feel calmer and more at ease while allowing space for them to move. 

You will have options to walk around, use a birthing ball, and even labor in their large tub or Jacuzzi. Each room has natural light, a sleeper sofa, and a warming crib for your baby. The best part, your baby never leaves your side unless medically necessary.
