Family Birth Center

1,400 babies are born each year at St. Clair Hospital

The St. Clair Family Birth Center Has Been Delivering Generations of Pittsburghers For Over 60 Years. 

At St. Clair Hospital's Family Birth Center, no birth is routine, and no baby is ordinary. Every delivery is a miracle, and every baby, a wonder to behold. St. Clair firmly believes that childbirth is a family event and focuses on providing a comfortable, caring and safe environment for all members of the family.

Each of our private LDRP (labor/delivery/recovery/postpartum) rooms provides a warm and comfortable setting supported by state-of-the-art technology. These rooms are used by patients anticipating a vaginal delivery. Operating rooms are located in the unit for Cesarean section (C-section) deliveries. After a C-section, new mothers will recover with their babies in a private monitored environment.

The personalized care each mother and child receives from our dedicated, professional staff makes the birth experience at St. Clair unique. Our exceptional level of care is reflected in the high satisfaction scores we receive from patients:

  • All of our obstetricians are board certified.
  • A board-certified pediatrician is on staff 24 hours a day. 
  • A Level 2 Nursery is available for infants who require extra care. The nurses are specially-trained in labor, delivery and post-partum care and provide individualized care to the patient and her baby throughout the course of their stay.
