Savor the Tiniest Moments
We provide a supportive environment for moms-to-be, so you can focus on having a healthy pregnancy and delivery.
Whether you choose to have your baby at a CHI Franciscan Family Birth Center or our Midwifery Birth Center, you’ll receive personalized care and support from one of the largest health systems in the Seattle-Tacoma region. At CHI Franciscan Health, we’re committed to exceptional care that puts you and your baby first.
We offer two great options for labor and delivery: our Family Birth Centers located throughout the Puget Sound region and our new Midwifery Birth Center, located on the St. Joseph Medical Center campus in Tacoma. Discover which one is right for you and your baby!
Regardless of the location you choose, you’ll receive the caring, personal attention that we’re known for. Our skilled obstetricians, nurse-midwives and nurses are dedicated to supporting the birth experience you choose. View our videos to learn more about the expert care at our birth centers.
We designed our comfortable birthing suites with you and your family in mind, to provide a soothing, positive birth experience. Please view our locations below for birthing suite features.
