Birthing Centers

Labor and Delivery Specialists and Care Centers

The birth of a child is not only a special time in a woman’s life, it's also a major medical event. Northwestern Medicine Maternity Services are designed to surround you with comfort—as well as take care of all your medical needs and those of your baby.

From the moment you arrive, you and your family will be surrounded by the support of distinguished physicians, highly trained nurses and other care providers who are committed to your baby’s well-being and your family’s finest birthing experience.

Each birthing suite offers a home-like setting, yet discreetly tucked away are the latest tools for pain management, fetal monitoring and maternal care.

High-comfort, high-tech birthing suites

When it’s time for your baby’s arrival, you’ll settle in to a private, home-like labor-delivery-recovery suite equipped with the latest technology. Experienced labor and delivery nurses offer the care and support you need through every stage of childbirth, and maternalfetal specialists are standing by to handle any complications.

Skilled care for special deliveries

Northwestern Medicine specialists are fully prepared to care for multiple births (such as twins, triplets or quads) and emergency cesarean deliveries. For your safety and that of your baby, a neonatologist is present during a cesarean delivery. An obstetrician and anesthesiologist are available 24/7 to meet your needs.

If you're visiting Northwestern Medicine Central DuPage Hospital or Northwestern Medicine Delnor Hospital, you and your baby will have convenient access to more than 150 board-certified pediatric specialists who use the latest child-specific equipment, technology and techniques thanks to an affiliation with Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago.*
