Arriving to Deliver Your Baby

We recommend that you and your partner make plans on how you will reach the hospital when you are in labor. Know the drop off area, where to park, and how to arrive to the BirthCare Center inside the hospital. A few weeks before your due date, keep your gas tank full—you may not have time to buy gas when in labor. Plan for emergency back-up transportation, in case you and your partner are not together when labor begins. When you arrive at the hospital to deliver your baby, remember to go to the BirthCare Center rather than the Emergency Department.

Select the hospital you will be delivering at for driving direction and parking information:
