Preparing for your child’s birth.
Let our family help you create your family. North Country Hospital’s newly remodeled Birthing Center has 4 beautiful birthing rooms. These intimate, warmly decorated rooms let you have your baby in a special setting with all of the comfort and privacy of your own bedroom and a relaxing whirlpool tub. You will still have all of the medical attention and modern equipment of a traditional delivery room. The birthing room concept allows the family to participate in the birth in a relaxed atmosphere.
