Maternity Education


Proctor Hospital

The arrival of a new baby is one of life’s most exciting events. There is laughter. Tears. Congratulations. New responsibilities. It is the beginning of one new family and the growth of another.

At Proctor Hospital’s Family Maternity Center, we’ve added a special touch to every step of the birth process. When your day arrives, you will be escorted to one of our comfortable, home-like birthing suites. Our team of maternity specialists will be ready with the latest technology, the touch of a hand and a reassuring voice. If special care is needed for high-risk mothers and their babies, specialists are just a phone call away.
