Birthing centers, like the The Birthing Place at Colquitt Regional Medical Center, offer women a convenient, comfortable experience for childbirth that feels more like home than a hospital. A birthing center offers less reliance on invasive medical technology, instead focusing on making labor a natural and more personal process, with care from medical professionals who specialize in newborns and their mothers. Birthing centers allows for a mother to stay in the same room for delivery and recovery and can offer options likes public, private or antepartum suites. Birthing center suites are spacious enough for family and feature large beds, comfortable seating like rocking chairs, and showers or tubs.
