Center for Women & Families

at Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center


We are so happy you have chosen Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center as the place to have your baby. Our Center for Women and Families has achieved a Birthing-Friendly designation and is home to a team highly trained in mother/baby care. We can’t wait to meet you!

As you prepare for your new little one, your maternity care team stands ready to help you on your journey. If you have questions at any time, please don’t hesitate to contact your care coordinator. Your care coordinator is your one-stop source for birthing plan discussion, registration information, maternity tours, breastfeeding and childbirth class recommendations, and more. As you think through what you want your experience to be, communicate it to your care coordinator. In no time, the day will be here, and we’ll be ready for you and your new baby.

During your stay, you will receive education and support with breastfeeding. A lactation consultant will assist you to start breastfeeding within one hour after childbirth and will show you how to breastfeed and maintain lactation. Your baby will stay in your room with you during your stay. We will ensure you receive up to two hours of uninterrupted time for skin-to-skin contact with your baby each day. Our lactation consultants will also provide you with tools to maintain lactation after leaving the hospital and offer weekly breastfeeding support groups.

Center Tour

To get familiar with your environment before delivery time comes, we encourage you and a support person to sign up for a tour.

The Center for Women & Families provides a welcoming, safe and secure environment for you and your new family.

We look forward to meeting you.


Childbirth Preparation, Breastfeeding and Infant CPR classes are just a few of the excellent classes and support groups held at Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center for you and your family.

Your Experience

Every birth experience is unique. When you meet with your hospital maternity care coordinator, you can share with them the kind of birthing experience you desire. Who will be there with you? Do you want a natural birth, or medication to help with your comfort? Do you want to walk around or sit in the jetted tub during labor? Will you be breastfeeding?

This is your time! Since babies often have a mind of their own, not everything will go as planned. The preparation you do beforehand, though, will enable you to focus on what is most important – your experience and the birth of your baby!
