Mercy Women & Infants' Center Tours

The best way to know if you'll be comfortable in your birthing environment is to take a tour. Mercy offers exepcting parents two options for touring our birthing units – in-person group tours and a virtual tour. You will visit our OB Emergency and Antepartum Department, Birthing Unit, Mother/Baby Unit and see where the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is located.

We make scheduling a tour convenient with an online registration system. To set up a tour, visit our Classes and Screenings page. Select “Birthing Center Tours” from the drop-down menu and click “Search.” Click on the date/time you’d like to attend, then click “Register” on the next screen. It will then put the item in your cart. To complete your registration, go to the cart and click “Check out.” You will be asked some questions before the registration is completed. The tours are free.
