Because birth is a family event, your partner and family are included in the birth experience as much as possible here at the Maternity Center at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. We provide the comforts of home with the most advanced technology and experienced staff to give you the highest level of care, and peace of mind.

More than 5,200 Buckeye Babies were born at our Maternity Center last year. Our patients include women having vaginal deliveries, cesarean deliveries, vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC) deliveries and high-risk deliveries including multiples and preterm deliveries.
