This orientation is mandatory for anyone who would like to deliver her baby inside the special Birthing Center area of the Women's Care Unit. These special suites offer a personal delivery experience inside a cozy, home-like environment inside our state of the art facility.

This is a one time, information only orientation to provide the expectant mother and her support person with an overview of the Birthing Center guidelines and allows the opportunity to ask questions. The orientation fee includes both the patient and her support person.

Mothers considering a delivery in this special area must obtain approval from their obstetrician/midwife and be considered a low risk pregnancy.

This orientation does not replace a childbirth preparation course. The mother should prepare herself, in advance, for a natural labor and delivery experience without the use of labor pain medication and/or epidural.

We recommend that you have this completed before you are 36 weeks pregnant. Due to high demand of this orientation course, we encourage you to book your class early to be completed in the suggested timeframe. If you are unable to book this orientation within the appropriate timeframe, remember that several of our standard labor and delivery rooms also have tubs and natural labor tools to support a natural labor and delivery experience.

*NOTE: If you have registered to attend our expectant parents' class, "NATURAL MOMS", there is no need to register for this orientation. This orientation is incorporated into the content of that series.

If you've had a previous natural delivery in our Birthing Center, please contact our Birth Designer at  615-284-7526 to schedule a private appointment instead of registering to attend one of these orientation sessions. 

To attend a walking tour of the women's care units, you must register separately for that event. 

If you have questions that must be addressed before your orientation date, please call the Family Learning Center staff at 615-284-6455 Monday through Friday from 9 am to noon. You will also need to go online to pre-register as a patient to the hospital. The preregistration is done through our website: ascension.org/MidtownRegistration or scan the QR code located below.



If your class required payment, a refund will be given if a cancellation request is received 2 business days (48 hours) prior to the start of the class/program. A full refund will be given for any class cancelled by the site.
