Family Birth Center

Mother and baby together, supported by family and friends - Billings Clinic Family Birth Center has been designed to make this the best possible experience for you and baby. Our physicians, nurses and staff provide care in a comfortable, nurturing environment that provides the highest quality medical care.

Private Birth Suites

Mothers labor, give birth, and care for baby in a private birth suite. These suites include design elements that mothers told us they desire most. The combination of soft colors, soothing fabrics, spacious storage areas, television and stereo, coordinated furniture, and artwork emphasize comfort and support. Beautiful oak cabinetry tucks away state-of-the-art medical support equipment.

A fully furnished bassinet, a sink to bathe baby, and full medical gas outlets are standard elements in each birth suite. Private bathrooms have Jacuzzi bath tubs. In-room sleeping accommodations are provided for daytime or overnight stays for the father or mother's birth partner.
