Birthing Center

Have Your Baby the Way You've Always Dreamed

Bradley County Medical Center's hospital-based alternative birthing center offers a private, home-like environment and a sensitive, choice-oriented staff. Beautifully decorated private rooms feature a state-of-the-art birthing bed, entertainment center, and other comfortable touches. We maintain a good balance between high technology and high touch, incorporating current equipment with a wide variety of personal choices.


For over 20 years, we have helped mothers bring their babies into the world gently and lovingly, using the latest birthing techniques, focusing on the mother's needs, and allowing for personal choice throughout delivery. Our philosophy focuses on family-centered care. We believe birth is a natural, healthy process and we welcome the involvement of family, friends and loved ones.

Birthing Choices

We encourage personal choice and freedom of movement during labor. We offer the longest period of quiet bonding time available...even babies delivered by cesarean section can join mothers in the recovery room. We also honor your own detailed Birth Plan, because we know it communicates your personal wishes regarding birth environment, procedures, pain relief, and how your baby is welcomed into the world. For the safety of mother and child, our Birthing Center operates on the leading edge of technology, keeping pace with the latest innovations and trends in childbirth, including current techniques such as ultrasound.

Personalized Attention

Our outstanding Birthing Center nurses provide quality, personalized attention. Their expertise in labor and delivery, childbirth education, lactation consultation and neonatal emergency care, as well as post-partum care, has helped thousands of families with newborns get off to a good start. The entire Birthing Center staff is committed to giving your family a positive birth experience, one that ensures a smooth transition in bringing your baby into the family. We especially enjoy helping first-time parents work together through labor, delivery and the first few days as a new family.

LifeShare Blood Drive Set for July 12 at BCMC with Dire Need for Donations

There will be a LifeShare Blood Drive on Tuesday, July 12 from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. as blood is critically needed at this time. The blood drive will take play in the LifeShare bus that will be set up in the BCMC Rural Health Clinic parking lot. The BCMC Rural Health Clinic is located at 304 East Central Street across the street from the Emergency Room entrance at Bradley County Medical Center.

Blood donations are essential at this time as blood donations are down across the country, especially in our region. Local blood drives are the main source of blood for Bradley County Medical Center and the other hospitals in our surrounding area. If you are able to donate blood, please consider stopping by the LifeShare bus on July 12. Donors will get a free "Summer Donor" T-shirt while supplies last.
