The birth of your baby is one of the most joyous and cherished moments in your life. As you approach this special occasion, decisions will need to be made regarding where your baby will be born. At Mercy Family Birth Center, we have maintained a long-standing commitment to the community by caring for women and their families.
We offer sensitive, personalized care by an expert staff that is committed to the health of women and their families. At the same time, we are designated a Level II Center for advanced perinatal care. Our nurses have an average of 18 years experience assisting with labor, birth, early parenting and helping nursing mothers get a good start on breastfeeding. All of our registered nurses are certified in basic life support (BCLS), advanced life support (ACLS), and neonatal resuscitation (NRP), and Nationally Credentialed in Fetal Heart Rate Tracing Interpretation.
When you're ready to show off your new baby to friends down the block or around the world, we'll post his or her photo on Babies Online. The web site is completely secure and safe. Your baby's photo will be posted only with your permission.
Every week, Mercy will feature one of its newborns on two Sioux City billboards, located at 14th and Hamilton Boulevard and on Singing Hills Drive, as a way to officially welcome them to the community.
If you are expecting a baby or are preparing for pregnancy, we invite you to learn why Mercy Family Birth Center is the perfect place to have your baby. From our classes and events to our private labor/delivery/recovery suites to the sophisticated capabilities of our Special Care Nursery, we are dedicated to providing the very best for you and your family.

After 9:00 pm, please enter through the Emergency Room off of 6th Street. Personnel will escort you to the Family Birth Center. The Family Birth Center is located on the 9th floor off of Elevator B.
