Family Birth Center

William E. Winter Family Birth Center

With all its joy and promise, birth is an event like no other. It's our job to create a personal, comfortable, and memorable experience for mother — and family. That can mean preparing for a natural delivery, calming the discomfort of labor in a jetted bathtub, or soothing sore muscles with a post-partum massage.

Our Family Birth Center is small but mighty, and with a sterling reputation unmatched in the Willamette Valley. In fact, we deliver twice the number of babies as any hospital twice our size in Oregon — surely a testament to the doctors, midwives, nurses and staff that make every day at Silverton Hospital someone's birthday.

Classes & Support Groups

Childbirth and Breastfeeding classes and support groups at Silverton Hospital are a great source of information for new parents — as well as a good brush-up for those who already have children.

Childbirth Preparation (wonderful beginnings)

Childbirth Preparation classes are packed with important information to make pregnancy, labor and the first weeks with baby go smoothly. Classes include relaxation techniques and other coping tools that you’ll utilize in labor. Comfort options including pain medication and epidural anesthesia are also discussed. A tour of the Family Birth Center is included so you will be familiar with your surroundings when your time comes.

Breastfeeding & Baby Basics

Breastfeeding is the most healthy choice for you and your baby. Our B.A.B.I.E.S.

Nursery safety, crying infants and tips on transitioning into parenthood are also discussed.
