Pregnancy comes with a jumble of emotions. You can feel overjoyed and overwhelmed – all at the same time. At Providence Seaside Birth Center, we help you manage the changes in your body and understand the wealth of pregnancy information you’re likely hearing. We stay by your side, providing care tailored to you, your baby and your family.

Specialized care for moms and babies

Our birth center offers care beginning with pregnancy and continuing into parenthood. Our wide range of obstetric care includes access to maternal fetal medicine doctors if you and your baby need specialty services.

Throughout your pregnancy and beyond, you can expect:

  • Access to specialty services at our Portland Metro facilities
  • Office visits scheduled to provide the best care and information at the right time
  • Care and monitoring for your health and your baby’s health throughout your pregnancy
  • Support during your pregnancy, delivery and after birth
  • Bonding time with your baby to ensure your physical and emotional well-being after birth
  • Social work
  • Internationally board-certified lactation consultants (IBCLCs)

Our birthing center team collaborates with specialists in many areas. Your care team may include experts in:

  • Anesthesia
  • Family practice
  • Gynecology
  • Laboratory services
  • Nursing
  • Obstetrics
  • Parent education
  • Pharmacy
  • Respiratory care
  • Spiritual care
  • Surgery

After the birth of your baby, a special time referred to as Baby Time is offered. This time, immediately following birth, facilitates skin-to-skin, fosters the first breastfeeding experience, and promotes bonding with your baby.

At Providence Seaside Birth Center, we focus on individualized, family-centered care. We provide labor, delivery, recovery and postpartum care all in one place. This means you get a high level of care from the same team throughout your stay.

Amenities at our birth center include:

  • Daybed where your partner or a guest can sleep
  • Free Wi-Fi, a flat-screen TV 
  • In-room mini refrigerator and room service for you and a guest
  • Lactation support from internationally board-certified lactation consultants (IBCLC) with donor breastmilk available as needed
