Birthing Center

The Birthing Center at Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital offers every woman and her family personalized care to meet individual wishes and medical needs. Our facility was one of the first maternity units in the nation to be recognized by the Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative (BFHI). APD is currently one of only five Baby-Friendly designated hospitals in New Hampshire.

Continuity of Care

At APD, the doctors or nurse midwives you choose for prenatal care will likely be the same providers who will deliver your baby. Time and again women who have given birth at our facility tell us that aside from the excellent family-focused care, they appreciate not having to guess or worry about who will be delivering their baby.

The Comforts of Home

The Birthing Center's LDRP (labor, delivery, recovery, postpartum) rooms are designed for comfort, privacy, and family togetherness. Each room is equipped with a birthing bed designed to facilitate labor, a private bathroom, a bassinette, a rocking chair, and accommodations for visitors and an overnight guest.

  • Jacuzzi tub available for laboring mothers
  • Complimentary VIP dinner for all mothers
  • Visitors can gather in the Gloria Green Family Room when moms need privacy

Beginning immediately after birth, babies “room in” to bond with their new family.

Cesarean Births

For those who deliver by cesarean birth, the hospital's Surgical Services department is equipped to handle all your medical needs. We use the latest in diagnostics and technology to ensure that your cesarean birth is as comfortable, supportive, and safe as possible.  Moms and babies are kept together through the recovery period.

Note: If you require a copy of a birth certificate, please contact the Lebanon City Clerk's office. They can help you by phone or email.
