Labor & Delivery Birth Center Tours


Congratulations on your pregnancy! Our award-winning Perinatal Education Program offers a variety of classes and tours for expectant families. Our tours are free of charge, but you must register in advance below so we can keep tour groups to a small size. This lets you ask all your questions and helps us give you more personal attention.


In-person tours of Visiting UW Medical Center - Northwest's Childbirth Center are by appointment only. To schedule a tour of our Childbirth Center, please call 206.668.1882 for more information.

Many families find it helpful to visit our facility before delivery. We encourage you to take a tour anytime during your pregnancy. During the tour, you will see our birthing suites and mother-baby postpartum rooms, which are designed for your comfort.

After the tour, we hope you have a better understanding of what to expect when you come to deliver at UW Medical Center and the resources available to you. Family members and children are encouraged to attend as well.

Parking at the UW Medical Center

  • Parking is available in the underground Triangle Parking Garage, which is across NE Pacific Street from the medical center. After parking in the Triangle Garage, go to the medical center using the underground tunnel. Take the elevator or escalator up to the main entrance, located on the 3rd floor of the medical center.
  • For valet parking, stop at the booth on the drive in front of the medical center near the main entrance. A valet will park your car in the Triangle Garage. The cost is the same as parking your car in the garage yourself.
