Welcome to Avera St. Luke's BirthPlace

Avera St. Luke's BirthPlaceWe are pleased to offer a wide range of maternity services to the families of our region in a beautiful new atmosphere on the fourth floor of our southeast addition.

The BirthPlace, a state-of-the-art obstetrics unit that opened in 2006, contains 12 private rooms that surround a central nursery in a family-friendly, spa-like environment. Our philosophy of care is based on a family-centered approach to childbirth. 

The primary goal of the BirthPlace is to provide an optimal and supportive environment so the family may experience a safe, personal and satisfying childbirth. Childbirth is believed to be a natural life experience and an important social event essential to family growth and development and basic to our way of life.

Having a baby is the beginning of a family, and we can help play an important role in the transition to parenting. We offer comfortable Single Room Maternity Care with rooms designed for a continuity of care, with privacy and quiet for Mom, baby and family. Should your baby require special care, the Level II Nursery is equipped with the latest technology. We also offer post-partum care and breastfeeding support.
