Register now for a personal tour of Billings Clinic Family Birth Center.
Private Birth Suites
A private birth suite gives you privacy as you labor, give birth, and care for your newborn baby. Each suite has a private bathroom with a full Jacuzzi bath tub. There are also in-room sleeping accommodations for daytime or overnight stays for your birth partner.
Billings Clinic offers the Monica Novii Wireless Patch System to give laboring moms more mobility and freedom to choose their laboring positions. The device is a wireless, belt-free fetal monitor that allows your care team to stay connected to you and your baby without mom having to be connected to the machine. Movement can help labor progress, and with this system your nurse can watch your contractions and baby’s vital signs in real time as you move about.
The Billings Clinic birth suites feature soft colors, soothing fabrics, spacious storage areas, a television and stereo, coordinated furniture, and artwork. Our state-of-the-art medical support equipment is tucked away behind beautiful oak cabinetry.
When baby arrives, you will have a fully furnished bassinet and a sink for bathing.
Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
Billings Clinic offers a state-of-the-art Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) for babies requiring comprehensive care, monitoring, and intensive medical attention. Three board-certified neonatologists and pediatricians supported by a highly qualified staff care for these tiny newborns around-the-clock.
Additionally, emergency transport flights for pregnant women or newborns are available on MedFlight's fixed-wing air ambulance.
