Telfair BirthPlace

We deliver nearly 3,000 babies a year with skill and compassion.

Telfair BirthPlace features 25 mother/baby rooms and 14 labor and delivery rooms. Perioperative surgical teams using special operating suites and in-house dedicated obstetrical anesthesiologists are available at all times should a cesarean section be necessary. This center also features an antenatal testing area, a Level 2 special care nursery and an obstetrics triage area with 11 beds.

At Telfair BirthPlace, our care is holistically focused on the physiologic and psychosocial needs of the patient and family and is delivered in a patient-focused environment by our self-directed care teams. The department features a labor/delivery/recovery (LDR) unit, a Mother/Baby unit and a Level II Neonatal Nursery, our Special Care Nursery. Women's health needs receive attention with respect and compassion.

Nearly everything you need to know about how Telfair BirthPlace operates, what to expect in childbirth and what to do afterwards can be found in these pages. We've recently added some new features so you can learn about us at your leisure before your baby is born.
