Our birth center is continuing to care for families, and we’re taking many steps to keep all our patients – including and especially our littlest ones – safe during the COVID-19 outbreak.
We require all patients and visitors to wear a mask or face covering while in our hospitals. We’re also screening all patients and visitors for symptoms of COVID-19.
Visitors are currently limited in our hospitals and birth centers:
If you are sick, you will not be allowed to visit patients.
New parents have many choices, and your birth center is one of the most important ones. Choosing Regions Hospital Birth Center means great medical care. It means choosing a place that makes you and your family feel comfortable and welcome.

After delivery, there’s time for skin-to-skin contact and bonding.

We also focus on helping new parents learn how to take care of their babies. Newborns get care from HealthPartners pediatricians, and moms get breastfeeding support from certified lactation consultants.
