Birthplace & NICU

Your baby is unique... Your birth experience should be, too.

No other experience is as moving and personal as the birth of your baby. Thousands of moms appreciate the high-quality birth care, advanced Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), and unsurpassed personalized attention they receive at Mercy Birthplace.

Healthy Moms & Babies

The health and safety of you and your baby are the main priorities during your stay at the Birthplace. That's why:

  • A NICU nurse attends every birth as a precaution.
  • Families delivering at Mercy were the first in the Cedar Rapids area to have access to immunization "cocooning" to give newborn babies an extra layer of protection from whooping cough.
  • All babies sleep in HALO® Sleep Sack® swaddle wearable blankets while at Mercy. Remember, safe sleep is as easy as A-B-C.
