RHPN Reading Birthing Center is the only hospital owned free-standing birth center in the Tri State Area offering a gentle, personalized care in a relaxed, home-like setting.
Our Certified Nurse Midwives, RNs and collaborating OB are all board-certified providers who dedicate the time, education and support needed to take an active role in our patient’s health. This team approach allows us to provide you with high quality care that matches your individual needs.
The environment at RHPN Reading Birthing Center is warm, private and welcoming for you and your family. Our accredited birth center is fully equipped for up-to-date prenatal care, delivery and well-woman care and is the only licensed facility in the state of Pennsylvania that is certified baby friendly by the World Health Organization.
Today, women have more options than ever to find and select a birth plan that matches their needs. For women with a low risk pregnancy who desire a more natural birth experience, a birth center may be the right solution for you. If you are one of the many women weighing the pros and cons of home birth, or if you and your partner want to be fully involved and have a desire to explore a private, intimate, safe alternative to hospital or home, a birthing center can be a good option.
What makes our facility special is we go beyond the birthing experience. We believe in taking care of our patients and their family before, during and after the delivery. Our Birth Center care begins with your first prenatal visit. It is a program of education for pregnancy, nutrition, birth, labor support, baby care, and general women’s health that extends beyond the patient to family and friends.
Our Birth Center program gives you confidence in your ability to give birth, balancing the human touch and technology.
