Proud to Be Baby-Friendly Designated
In Feb. 2018, we were designated a Baby-Friendly birth center. This means we excel in helping new moms breastfeed and bond with baby while supporting safe feeding practices for those moms who are not able to or choose not to breastfeed. Learn More.
More pain-relief options
The Davenport BirthCenter is the region's first birth center to offer nitrous oxide, or "laughing gas," for pain relief during childbirth.
The QC's safest BirthCenter
The BirthCenter has a dedicated perinatal safety nurse and was the first in the QC to have all labor nurses trained to give specialized advanced cardiac life support to women in labor.
After each delivery, an established "Golden Hour" provides mom, baby, and significant other with quiet time to bond. Newborns are placed skin-to-skin with moms to help them transition to life outside the womb.

From whirlpool and labor tubs to cordless fetal monitoring, the Davenport BirthCenter offers the latest comforts for women during their labor. Learn More
