Iowa Methodist Maternity Center

At Iowa Methodist our experienced nursing staff works closely with the physicians and midwives to provide you with the high quality and personalized care you and your family deserve. Our recently renovated birthing suites are designed with the complete comfort and safety of mother and baby in mind. Our mothers will spend their entire stay in one room, each equipped with the latest medical technology and many comforts from home. Our beautiful waiting area includes a play center for children, televisions and comfortable seating. Our beautiful suites offer many comforts for new moms, including:

 
 
 
 
 
  • Flat screen televisions
  • CD players
  • Whirlpool tubs
  • Pull-out couches for family and friends
  • Convenient room service, offering a wide variety of menu selections

In addition to our spacious rooms and outstanding staff, Iowa Methodist Maternity Center houses two state-of-the-art surgical suites. Our secure newborn nursery is staffed 24/7 and we offer the only OB Hospitalist Program in central Iowa. With this Program we have 24/7 OB physician coverage to respond to OB emergencies, care for patients until their own provider arrives and to care for patients who do not have a health care provider. Learn more about our OB Hospitalist Program.

If your baby would require more advanced care, Blank Children's Hospital is located right next door to the Maternity Center with a walk-way directly to the Blank Level IV NICU. Blank physicians and staff are readily available to provide any assistance if that need should arise.

Newborn Photography

Are you interested in getting newborn photos taken during your stay at Iowa Methodist? We have partnered with Charley's Angels Photography to offer this unique service to our patients. This is a special service that we offer to parents but it is voluntary. Visit our Online Nursery page for more information and to view some of the photos taken at our hospitals.
