A new life is entering the world, and the world will change, for the birth of a child is the birth of a family. This is a unique and special time that will change your family dynamic forever, and we are honored to play a part in it.

At Marion Health we strive to make this moment in your life a special experience, with personal attention that centers on you and your family. We call it the Family Birthing Center.

It is our belief that care should focus on the safety and comfort of the mother and child while providing the flexibility that encourages the involvement of the entire family.
