Having a baby involves your entire family, and St. Luke's makes it
possible for them to be present. We make room for all the family members
you want to involve and we'll follow your lead throughout the birth
process. Our family-centered approach also means you and your baby
will share the same nurse and your baby will be in your room with you
as much as you want.
Your older children are welcome to attend your baby's birth. They'll
simply need to be educated about the process beforehand. Please call (319) 369-7580 to schedule an interview and necessary classes.
