Things to think about before you give birth

There are a few decisions that you should make before your baby is born.

  • Have you chosen your baby’s doctor? Your OB provider, your friends, and family are good resources to help you with your choice.
  • Are you going to breastfeed or formula feed?
  • If you have a boy, will you have him circumcised?


When should I come to the Birthing Center?

It’s always a good idea to talk about this with your doctor at an OB visit, but we recommend that you come into the Birthing Center if:

  • Your bag of water breaks
  • You are within 3 weeks of your due date and have been having contractions for at least 1 hour that last for 1 minute and are 5 minutes apart or less Our phone number is 715.356.8500. Please call us so we can be ready to care for you. Please call your OB doctor with all other questions.
