Birth Center Tours:
We invite you and your family to take advantage of the birthing center tours at Mercy-Dubuque prior to your delivery.
This way you can meet some of our staff and become acquainted with the facility. Tours are designed for expectant parents and families, including children over the age of 14 (we encourage younger children to attend Sibling Class).
Please call 563-589-9604 to schedule your tour.
Vaginal Birth after Caesarean (VBAC) Consultation
For parents who have experienced a previous caesarean birth and plan to labor this time.
A one-on-one session with a birth center nurse, arranged individually.
For those who need to talk about a previous delivery, and want help planning this one.
If there is something special that you need, or if group classes do not fit your work schedule or your comfort level, please call 563-589-9604 or 800-992-4784, or email email@example.com and our education coordinator can arrange something just for you.
