We accommodate your natural birthing plan or, if you decide to elect for an epidural, we will help arrange for that service. We are proud to deliver approximately 400 babies per year here at the Family Birth Center in Hermiston.

Should the need arise, a C-section suite is available in the Family Birth Center. So whether your C-section is scheduled or emergent, we care for you without having to leave the Family Birth Center. On average we have a 30.75 percent C-section rate and a 2.49 percent episiotomy rate, ranking us below the national average.

After your delivery, our team is here to support you and your baby. You will receive a well child check from your health care provider or a pediatrician offered by Good Shepherd Medical Group. Lactation consultation is also available by request and will show you proper techniques and answer any of your breastfeeding questions. A photo of your baby will also be taken and uploaded to our Mom365 where you can download or share the photo with friends and family.

Private tours are offered at your convenience and we will work around your schedule, giving you an opportunity to become familiar with our team and an opportunity to see our birthing suites at a time that is convenient for you. If you would like to schedule a tour, please call us at 541.667.3670.
