New birthing center at Mercy accepting patients

ST. LOUIS (KSDK) – The Mercy Birthing Center is accepting patients for a new in-hospital, low-risk nursing center run by certified nurse midwives.

The four birthing suites will resemble a home bedroom with queen-size beds, showers and large tubs for labor. There will also be a central living room area for family members, a kitchen, a space for childbirth classes and a separate clinical area where patients will visit the midwife during pregnancy.

The location is set to open in early September.

Most mothers and babies will go home with their families four to 12 hours after birth, and return for follow-up care a couple days later.
