New Beginnings Birth Center

At New Beginnings Birth Center, we welcome the arrival of 350 babies each year. We're proud to be a Baby-Friendly Designated hospital which means we've implemented policies and procedures to encourage and help mothers successfully breastfeed their babies.

Our experienced nursing staff and highly-skilled OBGYNs, combined with our comfortable labor and delivery area provide you with high-quality, comfortable care right here in Brookings.

OB-Suite.jpgLabor and Delivery

Our eight-bed maternity unit includes five labor, delivery, recovery and postpartum (LDRP) suites which are fully-equipped to accommodate the entire LDRP process in a comfortable atmosphere. The LDRP suites are outfitted with:

  • Private bathrooms with whirlpool bath and shower
  • Glider chairs
  • Birth balls
  • TV
  • Bose® Bluetooth Speaker
  • Bassinet complete with baby supplies
  • Fold-out couches for the comfort of the father/partner/support person
  • Selection of snacks available for the father/partner/support person
  • Cordless fetal monitoring system to allow expecting moms freedom of movement during labor and delivery


We know that dads, life partners and support persons are an important part of the labor and delivery process, too. That's why we offer room service for one support person. In addition, the OB has a selection of snacks available. 

Your room has everything you’ll need to care for your baby. We encourage you to have your baby room-in with you to promote bonding. However, if you choose to take a reprieve from your baby, our nursery is staffed with highly-skilled nurses so that you can rest before going home.

Our online baby gallery helps families celebrate their newest addition and share the joy of their newborn’s birth with family and friends. Visit our online gallery to welcome the new additions to our community.

After your baby is born, you may have many questions on everything from feeding to bathing. Our qualified staff will help teach you how to care for yourself and your new child. We also provide educational videos in each room for you and your family to view during your stay. Our nursing staff and certified lactation consultant can help you with breastfeeding issues and questions.

You can request made to order meals from our extensive room service menu. All meals are made when ordered and delivered directly to your room. For more information about room service, click here.
