No other experience is as moving and personal as the birth of your baby. At Mercy Birthplace, we understand how important it is.
From our nurses and staff members who have provided the expert care for thousands of moms and babies, to our advanced Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, you can expect unsurpassed personalized attention for you and your family combined with high-quality care at Mercy Birthplace.
At Mercy Birthplace, we’re dedicated to healthy mothers and babies. That’s why we have programs in place to keep you and your baby healthy and safe:
- Mercy was the first healthcare organization in the Cedar Rapids area to offer immunization “cocooning” to give newborn babies an extra layer of protection from whooping cough.
- Healthy Babies are Worth the Wait.® We’re partnering with the March of Dimes to reduce the number of medically unnecessary early deliveries in our community.
- All babies born at Mercy sleep in HALO® Sleep Sack® swaddle wearable blankets while at Mercy. Remember, safe sleep is as easy as A-B-C.
