The Emory Difference

The Maternity Center at Emory Decatur Hospital is designed around you – with spacious, clean delivery rooms, where you can work in harmony with your midwife, doula, or partner during labor. And we are so pleased to be one of only a handful of hospitals in the country that offer nitrous oxide as a pain relief option to laboring women.

Our staff thinks in terms of one birth at a time – where every mother’s delivery is unique. We don’t believe in rushing or pressuring mom or baby. When you’re ready, our medical team is here for you – ready to provide medical expertise required for a safe delivery.

The safety of mom and baby is our highest priority – and if your baby needs a little help once arrived, our Level 3 Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is only a few steps away. And don’t worry, we include moms and dads in the NICU care, doing everything to keep parents and baby together.
