Lehigh Valley Hospital–Muhlenberg
Family Birth and Newborn Center
Imagine a birthing facility designed with input from other parents like you. We did just that and created a new birthing experience in Bethlehem. When you choose to deliver at our Family Birth and Newborn Center at Muhlenberg, you’ll get a higher level of personal attention and exceptional clinical care for a uniquely memorable birth experience. It’s the perfect blend of medical excellence and special amenities – the big things and the little touches that help you feel right at home.
For example, the internet-ready campus offers full Wi-Fi access to give you more flexibility to shape your ideal birth experience. Private rooms offer comfortable seating and sleeping for your support partner. You may also follow your medical care through our secure MyLVHN portal available on your in-room iPad. And there’s so much more:
- Comfort measures during labor and delivery including hydrotherapy, birthing balls and more
