The Baby Place


At The Baby Place, everyone gets babied... we know that - from pregnancy to birth - the journey of parenthood can be one of the most exciting, unsure times of your life. That's why we combine the comfort of home with the personal care you need to guide you on the path to having a baby. And, our above-average nurse-to-patient ratio means there are more of us to shower you with personal attention and make your childbirth experience a positive, joyous occasion.

The Baby Place now offers more luxury, space and comfortable surroundings than ever before. Designed with the needs of a new mother in mind, expectant moms have special reserved parking. Our Labor/Delivery/Recovery rooms feature all the comforts of home in a pleasant, relaxed setting. In addition, families are welcome to celebrate their new arrivals in our private Post-Partum rooms, and a large play area in Family Reception offers children a fun, comfortable place to wait for their new brother or sister.

At The Baby Place, we offer the latest in technology and both traditional and alternative birthing styles, including hydrotherapy tubs. Highly trained doctors, nurses and nurse midwives take pride in working with you to create a birthing plan that reflects your personal style. We believe in helping pregnant women and their families through the entire progression so you can understand and enjoy your pregnancy, delivery and what comes after at every stage.

In fact, The Baby Place at Pekin Hospital received the international designation as a Baby-Friendly birth facility, one of only four hospitals in Illinois to be recognized. Baby-Friendly care focuses on keeping the mom and baby together. This practice helps to stabilize the baby more quickly, enhances bonding between mom and baby and supports successful breastfeeding. Pekin Hospital is a leader in the

We also offer a full range of prenatal and sibling classes, as well as breastfeeding education and ongoing support.

While The Baby Place will always be here to answer your questions, we would also like to share a valuable resource with you... On this informative website, you'll find a due date calculator, ovulation calculator, message boards, recall alerts and lots of other important information that you will find useful!
