Frequently Asked Questions

Family Birth Place virtual tour

How do I schedule a tour?

In-person tours of our maternity unit are suspended until further notice, but a virtual video tour of the Family Birth Place is available. If you have any questions, email community@ehmchealth.org.

Will I have a private room?

We have 21 spacious private rooms and 3 semiprivate rooms (for two mothers) in our Mother/Baby Unit. Private rooms are assigned when available, but cannot be guaranteed. If you are in a semiprivate room and a private room opens up, we will make every attempt to move you or your roommate.

Can my minor children visit me in the hospital?

Please see our Visiting Hours and Policies for detailed information about visiting the Family Birth Place.

Can I bring a doula?

Up to two designated support persons are permitted with a laboring mother. You are welcome to have a doula (birth coach) act as one of your support people, but that person must not interfere with the delivery.

Do you offer newborn portrait photography?

Yes. A professional photographer is available and will provide a complimentary photo as well as the option to purchase a package.
