Note: Milton Memorial Birthing Center (MMBC) can only accept low-risk women who are between the ages of 16-44.
Milton Memorial Birthing Center provides prenatal visits on a monthly basis until the 28th week
of pregnancy. At 28 weeks, prenatal visits occur every two weeks until the 36th week of pregnancy. At 36 weeks, visits are

Labor & Delivery
Milton Memorial Birthing Center provides natural childbirth services to women who are expected
to have normal, uncomplicated deliveries. An added bonus is that women are allowed to eat and drink during labor and there
are no unnecessary interventions.
Milton Memorial Birthing Center provides immediate postpartum care to women who have had uncomplicated
deliveries and to babies who are born healthy. Women and babies also receive postpartum exams within 72 hours and within 4-6
weeks following delivery and birth.
Simple laboratory tests (to determine blood type, risk factors, etc.) are required when women
are initially accepted as clients at Milton Memorial Birthing Center. Tests are also done at 28-32 weeks of pregnancy, at
36 weeks of pregnancy and as needed to determine risk status. If applicable, postpartum testing will be required (ex., women
with Rh negative blood type).
Milton Memorial Birthing Center does not offer laboratory services but will provide a laboratory
request/order to women for the tests to be done. The laboratory fees and services are separate and apart from the services/fees
of Milton Memorial Birthing Center.
Milton Memorial Birthing Center must refer/transfer women who develop risk factors during the
prenatal, labor/delivery or postpartum periods and will make the appropriate arrangements for such referrals/transfers.
