The Birthplace offers many options for prenatal care, delivery--including Midwifery--post-partum care, and education. Our combination labor, delivery, recovery and postpartum rooms (LDRPs) offer families a spacious and comfortable area during the birthing experience. Options are offered for pain relief from support for natural childbirth with Jacuzzi tubs, showers, and birthing balls to pain medications and epidurals as needed. "Rooming In" is available for moms, dads, and babies. The experienced and compassionate staff are eager to assist you in creating the memorable birth you desire. 

The Birthplace participates in the New York State Breastfeeding Quality Improvement in Hospitals program. A certified lactation specialist conducts workshops and is here to help you give your baby the strongest possible start.
