COVID-19 Birthplace Update

Changes have been made at Mercy Hospital - Springfield to protect our patients, the community and our co-workers. Read our COVID-19 FAQs here.

Access to Level III NICU & Pediatric Specialitsts

When you choose Mercy for the birth of your baby, you’ll appreciate the expertise of our multidisciplinary medical team and the reassurance of an on-site level III neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) for those unexpected complications.

From early pregnancy, to the days, weeks and months following the birth of your baby, Mercy is here to help every step of the way with southwest Missouri's best mother-and-baby care.

Midwife Care For Natural Births

Mercy recognizes that many women are looking for a low intervention childbirth experience with midwives, so we opened the Mercy Midwifery Service, the area’s first in-hospital low-risk birthing service managed by certified nurse-midwives (CNMs).

The low intervention rooms are on the fifth floor of the hospital, around the corner from Labor and Delivery. The two low risk birthing suites are decorated to create a calming ambience resembling bedrooms in your home. Each suite has a queen-size bed, showers and large tubs for labor. 

The CNMs also attend labor and birth in the traditional Labor and Delivery unit for VBACs, women who need or want an epidural, or clients who need to be collaboratively managed with an OB/GYN for higher risk issues.

Mercy Clinic Midwifery - Smith Glynn Callaway, located at 3231 South National Suite 230 in the Smith Glynn Callaway building, provides prenatal, lactation, well-woman, postpartum and well-baby care for complete care with the midwives. We also have a physician on staff and always an OB/GYN hospitalist on call for collaboration, consultation and referral.
