Designed to Deliver
We've built the Mid-Hudson region's most advanced maternity facility.
Ask today's mothers-to-be what they want for their childbirth experience, and the answers are as different as the women themselves. On one issue, however, they're in agreement: They want to be in control throughout their pregnancy, labor and delivery.
In other words, they want choices - about who delivers their baby, how they manage their pain, their position during labor and childbirth, and who is present the moment their child is born.
