Mothers trust us to deliver 

As one of the busiest birthing centers in Missouri, we've earned the trust of moms-to-be because we provide family-centered care and individual attention in a warm, caring environment. Our highly-trained, expert team includes board-certified obstetricians, available 24 hours a day, and the region's only board-certified perinatologist to care for patients with high-risk pregnancies. Freeman Maternity Center, designed with privacy and comfort in mind, features home-like birthing suites and private postpartum rooms.

We recently opened the newly remodeled nurses station, nursery, and mom and baby rooms in the postpartum unit at Freeman West. The new, more spacious design permits mothers and babies to room‐in together for an enhanced bonding experience. This project also includes a state‐of‐art infant security system for the protection of our youngest patients.
