TeamBirth: Personalized care with a team approach

We are proud to use a model of care called “TeamBirth,” which centers you in all health care decisions made throughout labor, delivery, and postpartum. TeamBirth uses frequent “huddles” to ensure everyone knows what is happening and why – at every step of the way.

Patients love the TeamBirth model because if a decision needs to be made, it doesn’t happen at the nurses' station; it happens in your room. If you don’t understand something, you have a chance to clarify things with your whole care team during huddles. This not only involves you in all decisions, it leads to better communication all around, which results in better care for you and your baby.
