By choosing the Indiana University Health Goshen Hospital Circle of Caring Birthplace, you are assured of the best health care available, plus friendly, professional advice and support. Right from the start, we work to make your experience memorable. We know how important the birth of a child is to you, so we devote extra attention to your comfort. At the IU Health Goshen Hospital Circle of Caring Birthplace, our facilities and care are designed around you – and your family.
The birth of a child is a major event for the whole family. The family-centered approach at IU Health Goshen Hospital Circle of Caring Birthplace accommodates and encourages participation by all family members – whether it’s being present during delivery or visiting the newest member. Our care focuses on keeping parents and baby together. That means dad can participate in the delivery, and he's welcome to stay the night. Both mom and baby are cared for by one nurse (per shift) in order to provide support to both new and experienced parents. A nursery is also available if you need a rest or your baby has special needs. You can have your baby in your room with you as much as you desire, and you determine how much privacy and visitation you want.
