Mothers & Babies

Make an Impact

Ensure healthy moms and babies and a special birthing experience, for every family  

Each newborn is unique and special. Every birth day should be, too.

Your support helps mothers and babies have a safe, joyful delivery

One of the most meaningful ways to celebrate the miracle of a new life is by making a donation to health care services especially for mothers, babies and parents-to-be. Donations provide ongoing updates to Mercy Health - The Birth Place at St. Rita's Medical Center so our care teams can provide every patient with the latest equipment and advancements in maternity care.

Families will have a comfortable and soothing home-like space as they welcome a new baby into the world. Every mother can feel safe, relaxed and empowered throughout labor and delivery. And a Special Care Nursery gives new parents peace of mind if their baby needs more intensive medical care.

Donations for Mom & Baby Care provide compassionate support for families facing infant loss. A specially trained bereavement doula offers physical and emotional comfort to parents during labor and birth and chilling bassinets called CuddleCots give families more time to say goodbye to their baby.

When you support Mom & Baby Care, you are there for families during an important and memorable life milestone.
