Birthing Services: The Family Birth Place

Birthing Services: The Family Birth Place

HealthAlliance of the Hudson Valley’s Family Birth Place offers the highest level of care to women. Located at HealthAlliance Hospital, the Family Birth Place provides a range of choices for expectant women in a secure, yet family-friendly environment where the well-being of our mothers and babies is our highest priority.

HealthAlliance Hospital is the only designated Baby-Friendly birth facility between Albany and Westchester County. The designation, widely considered “the gold standard” of maternity practices, means the hospital is nationally credentialed for meeting or exceeding international standards for providing optimal newborn care, including immediate mother-baby bonding and breastfeeding for the best health of the baby and the mother.

We at the Family Birth Place believe that every childbearing experience is unique and that every woman is entitled to a joyful and healthy birth experience. Which is why our beautiful unit is designed to make your delivery a safe, natural and comfortable experience and why we work in partnership with you and your family to design a care plan tailored to your particular needs and preferences.

We offer many proven methods of low intervention labor management such as birthing balls, hydrotherapy tub or shower, nitrous oxide, as well as intrathecal pain management and epidural analgesia.

Our staff is committed to providing personalized care with attention to detail, all while listening to your needs. Many clinical staff members are Certified Lactation Counselors. Certification holders demonstrate competence in lactation knowledge, skills and attitudes, and agree to comply with the Academy of Lactation Policy and Practice code of ethics.
