Barton's Family Birthing Center is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The Family Birthing Center offers beautiful, spacious suites for expecting moms and babies. Our newly remodeled rooms are decorated with rocking chairs, televisions, refrigerators, sleeper sofas to accommodate family members, and various accessories reminiscent of home.
Single-room maternity care is just part of the family-centered mother and baby care offered at our Family Birthing Center.

The Family Birthing Center makes sure that your newborn is safe at all times. Systems in place to protect you and your baby include locked access areas, security cameras, and nurse name badges so you will know who is authorized to care for your baby during your stay and that your baby is always safe with them.
Wireless internet access is available for new moms and visiting guests. Cell phones use is also permitted in the Family Birthing Center.
Barton Memorial Hospital Family Birthing Center offers specially trained registered nurses to help you with your lactation needs. Certified by the International Board of Certified Lactation Consultants, our consultants will help answer your lactation questions and address your concerns. After being discharged, these lactation services are available by making an appointment with a Lactation Consultant. Click here to view flyer.
If you choose to participate, a nurse from the Family Birthing Center staff will visit you at home, usually within the first two weeks after the baby's birth, to see how you and your baby are doing. She can answer questions you may have and provide you with information on resources available to you and your baby. This is an optional program that is free to all families because most of the cost is paid for by a grant from First Five of El Dorado County. First Five is a program that promotes the health and development of children 0 to 5.
For expectant parents, prenatal health, childbirth and infant focused classes are available at a nominal fee.
