Maternity Center Tours

One way to help you and your partner feel more relaxed at the birth of your baby is to take a tour of the maternity center you will be delivering at. Seeing the rooms, having a nurse explain the process, and meeting some of the staff beforehand will provide you with an idea of what to expect when the big day arrives.

Kettering Health Network’s state-of-the-art Labor & Delivery Suites are designed with comfort in mind and offer amenities to provide you with the most optimal delivery experience. 

Suites offer: 

  • Spacious, private rooms with en-suite restrooms
  • Large windows providing an abundance of natural light
  • Couches and/or sleeper sofa/chairs in the room to accommodate family members
  • Televisions in each room with access to current shows and a selection of movies
  • WiFi to stream movies or educational videos
  • Nutrition stations on the floor for family members
