About the UVM Medical Center's Birthing Center
As the region's only academic medical center, UVM Medical Center has an unmatched ability to provide the expert care that can make all the difference in your birthing experience. As health care providers grounded in Vermont values, we create a supportive environment which offers a variety of childbirth alternatives to the 2,000 families who deliver their babies at our hospital each year.
The Claire M. Lintilhac Birthing Center is located on the 7th floor of the McClure building. During the day, patients should park in the underground at the Ambulatory Care Center and check-in at the main registration desk on the 3rd floor. Overnight arrivals should park and register at the Emergency Department. Our security system requires all patients and visitors to be cleared by staff before entering the Center.

Our labor lounge offers beautiful views of Lake Champlain, providing a pleasant and calming environment for women in labor and their birthing partners. A separate lounge nearby provides a comfortable waiting area for families and visitors.
We have a long and proud history of including a variety of providers and delivery methods into our labor and delivery services.
UVM Medical Center's Mother-Baby Unit serves women and newborns as well as those with high-risk pregnancies who need special care and bed rest before and after giving birth. Located on the 7th floor of the Baird building, the unit offers many private rooms, a newborn nursery and a family lounge.
Mother-Baby is staffed by a team of nurses who specialize in ante-partum, post-partum and newborn nursing. They're also trained in lactation support and neonatal resuscitation. A lactation consultant is available weekdays for those mothers needing extra help and support. Learn more about breastfeeding support at UVM Medical Center.
