Your Birth Plan

Your baby’s birth is an amazing experience. By creating a birth plan, you can help shape that experience to meet your needs and preferences. A birth plan is a written guide that outlines your labor and delivery preferences, such as the type of delivery you want and pain management options like epidural anesthesia or natural birth. You can also include who may be present at the birth, what kind of music is playing during delivery, and more. Your Mercy delivery team will make every effort to accommodate your plan.

Labor and Delivery

Our spacious, private labor/delivery rooms provide a comfortable, safe and supportive birthing environment. From the moment you arrive, Mercy's experienced registered nurses monitor your progress while delivering high-touch, high-tech care in soothing surroundings. Whether you have a vaginal birthCesarean section or vaginal birth after Cesarean (VBAC), we’ll be there to support you. Should you require any specialists during labor or delivery, we’ll coordinate your care and make sure you’re in expert hands.
