The Dr. R.J. Creighton Family Birthing Centre (FBC) supports over 400 families a year as they welcome their babies into the world. We strive to provide patient-centered care where the needs and wishes of our patients are respected and honoured. Our dedicated team of eight Family Physicians, two Midwifery groups, specially trained OB nurses, registered practical nurses, lactation consultants and social workers are here to support this process.

The FBC is located on the main floor of the SBGHC Walkerton Hospital. It is a secure, locked unit with six delivery suites where you and your family remain for your entire hospital stay. Each delivery suite has it’s own private en-suite bathroom with a bathtub/shower.

We provide one-to-one nursing care during your labour, 24-hour C-section coverage, and as well  a wide range of labour pain management options, including comfort measures, nitrous oxide, parenteral narcotics and epidurals. We also provide postnatal follow up visits to ensure that parents and babies are transitioning well into their new roles and that infant feeding is going well.

If you are interested in delivering at the Family Birthing Centre, have your family physician fax a referral to one of the physicians listed below. If you do not have a family doctor you can contact the physician’s office directly. You may also choose to see a midwife for your obstetrical care and delivery and you can access one of the two midwifery groups through the links below.
