We understand that every woman has a different vision for her pregnancy and childbirth experience.

And we know, too, that if there's one thing all moms have in common, it's that they want the best for their babies.

And at UM St. Joseph Medical Center, we deliver just that.

Whether this is your first pregnancy or you're adding to your growing family, you can count on us to offer you is the highest-quality medical expertise and personalized, compassionate care.

UM SJMC welcomes more than 2,000 babies each year in our cozy, family-centered birthing center. As one of the area's leading birthplaces, we provide advanced obstetrics services in a warm, caring environment recognized for our stellar patient safety ratings and comprehensive care.

In addition to our OBGYN doctors, we have the largest number of certified nurse-midwives of any hospital in the metropolitan area, providing expectant moms with a wide range of choices for their birthing experience.

We're with you all the way. Throughout — and even before — your pregnancy, as you prepare to welcome your little one, our team members are committed partners in your miraculous journey.

When your special day comes, you can count on us to make your maternity care experience as safe and comfortable as possible. Our labor and delivery rooms are equipped with modern technology and homey touches to help give you, your baby and your partner the best birth day possible.

In our Mother-Baby Unit, all rooms are private, and there is a daybed for your partner so your family can begin bonding right away.

Peace of Mind for All Pregnancies

No pregnancy is the same as any other pregnancy — yours or anyone else's. Our team will answer your questions, keep you informed and offer the care that's right for you and your baby.

First-Time Moms

To make the most of your birth experience, it is important that you know your options. Our childbirth classes are here to help you do just that — prepare for a birth day that's just right for you and baby.

While you recover, our nurses and lactation consultants are here to answer your questions and provide information and sound advice as you prepare to begin caring for your new little one.

And the support doesn't stop after you go home. Our team offers support groups for new moms, where you can get answers to your questions, stay connected and make new friends!

High-Risk Pregnancy

At our Perinatal Center, our maternal-fetal health specialists provide close consultation and comprehensive care for mothers with high-risk pregnancies.

We care for moms with everything from severe lupus and renal transplants to diabetes and heart disease. And, of course, we provide the specialized care mothers carrying twins and multiples need.

Our on-site, 7,200-square-foot Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) provides high level treatment for babies who need advanced, specialized care.
