Description

This tour is for adults only and masking is required.  We encourage you to bring ONE support person as we have to limited capacity of our tours at this time.  We will meet and begin the tour in the lobby area, just outside the auditorium of the Gilmore Center for Health Education.  Please enter the Gilmore Center on the main level at the north end of the Gilmore Center where it attaches to the South end of the Jasper Street parking ramp.  

We will spend about the first 30 minutes doing the walking portion and seeing a labor and delivery room and/or a mother-baby room if one is available to see.  Please note that there is not a guarantee that a room will be available to see, and we don’t always know this ahead of time, but we will do our best.  Then, for the final 30 minutes we will come back to the Gilmore Center where an experienced OB nurse will provide an overview about "what to expect" and answer any question you may have.
