Sister Michael Marie Flannery Maternity Welcome Center

About Our Maternity Welcome Center in St. Louis

Every day is Labor Day at the Sister Michael Marie Flannery Maternity Welcome Center! We are located inside the main entrance to Mercy Hospital, on the right side of the main lobby. The Maternity Welcome Center offers easy access and convenient check-in for expectant parents.

All expectant moms start their birth experience here. We’re here for you 24/7 – whether you’re in labor, think you might be, or have a pregnancy concern that requires prompt medical attention. This includes women who are scheduled for labor induction or cesarian birth. Please bring a photo ID and your insurance card along for verification.

What to Expect

At our St. Louis Birthplace Maternity Center, you'll meet your nurse in the Interview Room inside the Maternity Welcome Center. You'll talk about how your labor is progressing, and if you’ve completed a personal birthing plan, you may discuss it with your nurse at this time.

Additionally, if an exam is needed, you may be moved to the OB Triage area. If you’re in labor, we’ll closely monitor your progress until it’s time to move to the Labor and Birth Suites.

We have limited maternity parking spaces in the garage next to the main entrance. Partners may want to pull into the circle drive and assist the expectant mom inside before parking her car.
