Birth Centers in Wayne, Oakland, Macomb and Jackson counties.

Our family-friendly birth centers, located in Detroit, West Bloomfield, Clinton Township, Wyandotte and Jackson, offer care during pregnancy and childbirth that is close to home. Our birth centers provide an experienced team, advanced technology and comprehensive support services, while striving to maintain the comforts of home.

From our diverse team, you can choose an ob/gyn or certified nurse midwife for prenatal care in one of our many Women’s Health Clinic locations throughout the four-county area. When baby arrives, your spouse, partner, a relative or friend is welcome to stay overnight in your private room. You and your family can begin bonding with your baby, who will room with you 24/7, unless he/she requires care in the special care nursery.

Each of our hospitals is fully-equipped to handle the birth of your baby. Learn more about the amenities at each location.
