Before Baby Comes: Labor and Delivery
We are here to guide you through labor and delivery.
We encourage all expectant women to schedule a tour of our SMH Birthing Center, register for one of our many prenatal classes, and preadmit for your baby's birth within the first three months of your pregnancy.
By preadmitting, your vital medical information will be on file should complications arise. We provide several convenient preadmission options:
1. Print and complete the online Preadmission Registration Form and bring to your scheduled SMH Birthing Center tour.
