Birth by Design® is a personal service to help you design the details of the birth of your child. For information about pre-conception, throughout your pregnancy, birth and beyond, the Birth by Design® Nurse Counselor is just a phone call away. The Nurse Counselor can also provide you with a birthing kit consisting of a birth plan checklist, a list of obstetricians, and what insurance plans the hospital accepts. Also included is information on how to choose a doctor for yourself and/or your new baby, information about childbirth education classes, Women's Wellness Place benefits, and a brochure describing the "Fit for Two" classes at the YMCA. You may also request a Birth by Design® video which helps you get to know the Miriam F. Acheson Family Birth Place a little better. The video highlights our comfortable, spacious birthing suites and our Level II Special Care Nursery.
Many parents choose the Family Birth Place because it gives them peace of mind knowing that specially trained nurses and doctors are available just in case the unexpected happens. It's the only Level II nursery within a 60-mile radius. If you would like to have a tour of the Family Birth Place, find out how to stop smoking during your pregnancy, or need any other questions answered, please call the Birth by Design® nurse counselor at 810.989.3432. We want to make the birth of your baby, and your experience with us, as personal and memorable as possible.
