We want to help make your baby's birth a memorable and meaningful experience. The Maternity Care staff at St. John's is dedicated to supporting you through this exciting, life-changing event. We are respectful of your wants, needs and expectations of the birth process.
New waterbirth suite at St. John's
St. John's is pleased to now offer waterbirth as an option to expectant moms. A waterbirth is when the baby is born under water in a wide, deep tub. Waterbirth has steadily grown in popularity because of the calming effects of warm water. Water has many soothing benefits and has been shown to calm and comfort — even during labor and delivery.
Talk to your provider to learn more or go here to find out about waterbirth at HealthEast.

HealthEast Nurse-Midwives now at St. John's
HealthEast Certified Nurse-Midwives now deliver babies at St. John's. Nurse-midwives provide lifelong care for women, including care throughout pregnancy, labor and birth. They have advanced education in midwifery and are certified by the American Midwifery Certification Board. Learn more about HealthEast Nurse-Midwives and clinic locations.
For your comfort and ease, our family-centered model of care allows you to stay in one room throughout labor, delivery, recovery and postpartum. After the birth, you are encouraged to keep your baby in the room with you. Called "rooming in," this important time together helps you and your partner learn how to care for your baby's needs.
Babies can make unpredictable entrances into the world, so we have an ob/gyn doctor and neonatal nurse practitioners readily available at the hospital.
From aides, to nurses, to doctors, our entire staff is devoted to caring for women and their families. With years of experience, we have the knowledge and skill to help you through the birth and get you off to a good start with your baby.
You will be served meals each day while you are in the hospital. If you would like to bring food from home, a microwave and refrigerator are available. We offer a cafeteria and vending machines for family and visitors.
