Video: Chelsea Smith describes her experience with Copley’s Birthing Center.

Copley’s Birthing Center offers you the kind of personal, attentive care that only a small community-based and family-oriented facility can offer.

That means you get intimate, personal care from staff that’s like an extended family.

It’s the kind of place where members of our community care enough to hand-knit cozy warm caps for every one of our new arrivals.

We’re here to do more than just deliver a happy, healthy baby into your arms. We’re here to help your family by giving you the tools, the support and the confidence you need to start your new life off on the right foot.

We listen to what is important to you, and then use our expertise to help facilitate your birthing choices, plus all the details, big and small, that will make this miraculous event as positive, rewarding and healthy as possible.
