YOUR MIRACLE. YOUR EXPERIENCE.
YORK HOSPITAL BIRTHING CENTER.
From the moment they’re born, every parent wants only what’s best for their child. Because, never do you realize just how important, or even what “the best” may mean — until it comes to delivering your baby or your child’s medical care. The Obstetrics and Family Care Team at York Hospital understands this. They make a promise every day to provide this ‘intangible’ to the children, newborns, moms…and the families they care for. If you ask them, “the best” means delivering exceptional medical care in an uplifting and contemporary environment, within their own community, with the same love and kindness they’d offer to their own family.
TREATMENTS & SERVICES
Miracles Family Birth Center provide a full array of obstetrics – antepartum testing (a variety of tests performed late in pregnancy to verify fetal well-being), labor and delivery, postpartum and newborn care as well as inpatient pediatric services to take care of your children’s needs. Our team of supportive physicians, caring and experienced nurse midwives and specialized obstetric and pediatric nurses is renowned for their specialized skills, advanced training, and dedication to the health and wellness of you and your baby. We use state of the art technology such as fetal monitoring surveillance, electronic documentation and medication administration; and provide a safe environment using the HUGS security system.
York Hospital voted one of the best Maternity Hospitals
Newsweek in partnership with The Leapfrog Group, an independent nonprofit that monitors the quality and safety of health care, released this years awards for “Best Health Care” series. The award for the Best Maternity Care Hospitals are given to hospitals that meet Leapfrog’s tough standards for excellence in maternity care: hospitals that have low rates of C-section, episiotomy, and early elective deliveries, and follow important protocols to protect moms and babies.
Out of 231 hospitals across 36 states, York Hospital was one of only 14 hospitals throughout New England who received this award.
A BABY FRIENDLY ENVIRONMENT
We are designated a Baby-Friendly© site for breastfeeding moms and we offer skilled lactation specialists dedicated to helping with all aspects of breastfeeding needs. York Hospital’s Family Care team offers more than just hospital care. Special touches are what make our care unique. We provide many prenatal and educational classes for the entire family that include a popular belly casting class and a sibling class for lil’ tykes.
We also offer a comprehensive array of wellness services including hypnotherapy, Reiki, massage and craniosacral therapy to ease stress and anxiety throughout pregnancy. And of course, after delivery, a special gourmet celebratory dinner is served for the happy parents to enjoy. Follow-up home visits after baby is born is also a part of the services we provide. Here, our nurses perform exams on mom and baby to check vital signs, incision checks, assessment and evaluation of feeding, newborn weight and will answer any questions that may have come up since discharge.
We are pleased to share with you and your family a birthing experience that respects, supports and honors your birthing wishes. Our care involves your family members as much as you wish in all stages of prenatal care and childbirth.

Centering at York Hospital
Centering is an innovative, evidence-based model of group care which is bringing patients out of the exam room and into a comfortable group setting. Patients receive the highest quality of care and, as part of an ongoing group, form a supportive community where they develop skills and confidence to take control of their health. The Centering group healthcare models combine health assessment, interactive learning and community building to deliver better health outcomes and a better care experience for patients and their providers.
