Riverside Birth Center

Riverside Medical Birth Center

Personalized Care Throughout Pregnancy

A familiar face can be a great comfort when you’re giving birth. If you want to build a close relationship with your care providers, Riverside Birth Center in Waupaca is committed to giving you that personal touch.

Your family practice doctor or nurse midwife will stay with you throughout your pregnancy, and this is often the same person who delivers your baby. You’ll also have the support of certified nurses and lactation specialists.

Every spacious room features:

  • Soothing decor
  • Relaxing whirlpool bathtubs
  • Sleeping accommodations for the father or support person
  • Convenient kitchenettes
  • Dining table
  • Flat-screen TV
  • DVD player


After your baby arrives, your care providers will continue to check in with you as you rest and recover. And both you and your partner are invited to enjoy a special steak or seafood meal prior to going home.

Water Birth

Riverside Birth Center is the only hospital in the ThedaCare system to offer water birth as an option. A water birth takes place in your room using a special portable tub that has removable liners to ensure sanitation. You are in the tub and your partner can be in or outside the tub. The delivery team is outside the tub, providing support. Talk with your primary care physician if you are interested in having a water birth.

If Your Baby Needs Extra Care

You naturally hope your baby will arrive perfectly healthy. While that’s almost always the case, sometimes newborns need added attention to thrive. If additional specialized services are needed, our partners at Theda Birth Center also provide a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).
