Family Birth Place in Portland

A positive experience for you & your baby

You'll always remember the sound of that first cry, the first time you felt the tiny hand grasp your finger, watched the sleepy eyes open and gaze into yours. The birth of your child is an experience unlike any other. We invite you to see why the Family Birth Place at Adventist Health Portland is the choice for thousands of women every year to bring their miracle into the world.

It's all about you

Our Family Birth Place staff believes that each birth experience is unique. Your individual birth choices are supported while family relations are valued and nurtured. We strive to provide excellent quality care in a safe environment where God's love can be experienced in words, actions and touch.

You're in expert hands

Whether you're expecting your first baby or have been through childbirth before, you want to know you're in expert hands. The majority of the physicians who deliver babies at Adventist Health are board-certified, a credential often favored in quality care reports. And the medical team participating in your delivery is largely up to you.

Our maternity professionals include obstetricians, family practice physicians and nurse midwives. Our nursing staff are among the most experienced labor and delivery nurses in the area. Many of our nurses have special certifications such as fetal monitoring, inpatient obstetrics and lactation and are members of the national Association of Women's Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses.

Through our innovative partnership with OHSU, maternal-fetal medicine (MFM) physicians from OHSU offer consultations and reading advanced ultrasounds for patients with high-risk pregnancies in Portland’s eastside communities on the Adventist Health Portland campus. Learn more about our consultations for high-risk pregnancies and advanced obstetric ultrasounds.

Other expertise you'll benefit from:

  • Anesthesia is available around the clock and is administered only by qualified anesthesiologists (medical doctors who specialize in anesthesia)
  • Level II nursery with advanced services for babies in need of extra medical care
  • Lactation consultants and breastfeeding educators
  • Classes in childbirth preparation, newborn care and infant CPR
  • A support group for moms

Our emphasis on high-quality care has earned us one of the lowest rates of birth complications among Portland-area hospitals. It's just one of the reasons an independent organization that surveys more than 5,000 hospitals has ranked our maternity facility among the best in the nation.

Our heritage of whole-person care

Adventist Health Portland is an integrated healthcare system that has served the Portland community for more than 100 years. In addition to the full-service medical center, our system includes 18 primary care clinics conveniently located throughout Portland's east side. We have a rich tradition of whole-person care, paying careful attention to the needs of body, mind and spirit. This emphasis often takes on renewed meaning when you welcome a tiny new life into the world.
