Orientation and Tour

Institutes & Services > Women's Services

Important Update: In-person maternity classes resume July 1, 2020 (7/1/20) for all classes except the following: Maternity Tours, Big Brother/Big Sister classes, Tummy Time Method classes and Exercise classes. In order to attend a maternity class, a mask is required at all times and attendees must be screened before entering any TriHealth facility.

Becoming acclimated with our hospitals and the birthing process is important to help delivery go as smoothly as possible. We offer free maternity orientation and tours on weekday evenings and on Saturdays and Sundays.

During these group sessions, you will be introduced to the maternity services available at Bethesda North Hospital or Good Samaritan Hospital and discuss what to expect during your stay. The tour includes the areas of Labor and Delivery and Postpartum of each hospital. It does not include a visit to the Newborn Intensive Care Unit at Good Samaritan or the Harold and Margret Thomas Special Care Nursery at Bethesda North. This tour is appropriate for adults; tours for children are given with the Big Brother/Big Sister class. To arrange a maternity tour, call the Women's Health Line at 513 475 4500 or click below to register online. 

OrientationMaternity orientation and tour group sessions are offered weekday evenings and weekends for new parents and parents new to TriHealth. To register for a group session, call 513 475 4500 or register online. If you plan to bring more than one significant other to the tour with you, then you cannot register online. You will instead need to call 513 475 4500 to register. It is very important that our maternity tours start on time. If you find that you are going to be more than 15 minutes late, please plan on rescheduling your tour time. Please call 475-4500 on the next business day to reschedule your tour.

Private Tours

Private tours are available for parents with special needs. For example, if you have a need for an interpreter or have difficulty with English; are expecting a baby with health issues; or are using a surrogate mother, planning an adoption, or having a teen pregnancy. If you schedule an individual session with a nurse care coordinator, a tour can be provided as part of this session.

For all orientation sessions, please complete and bring the hospital information received in the packet from your doctor/midwife’s office, or you may mail it in to us. If you have not received a packet, please ask your doctor/midwife for one at your next appointment.

We are physicians, hospitals and communities working together to help you live better.
