Salem Hospital Family Birth Center is a safe, smart place to have a baby in the MidWillamette Valley. The birth center is staffed by a team of obstetricians, midwives, nurses and support staff who have years of experience with prenatal and birth care. In addition, the hospital’s Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit can care for babies born as early as 26 weeks, which means moms and babies can stay together in the same hospital even if there are complications with the birth. No other hospital in the area has a NICU on-site. The birth center also offers 24-hour obstetrics coverage by hospital physicians, which means that no matter when your baby decides to come, there is a doctor on-site, ready to help.
Salem Hospital Family Birth Center’s NICU ensures that moms and babies can stay together if complications occur

PUMPKIN PATCH GOLD
Bauman’s Farm and Garden 12989 Howell Prairie Rd NE, Gervais ● 503-792-3524 ● www.baumanfarms.com
Bauman’s Farm started its Pumpkin Patch when Brian, the oldest child of Rick and Barb Bauman, needed a place to take his second grade class to get pumpkins. They invited his entire class out to the farm, and Rick built a small maze out of straw for the kids to play in while they were there. The kids liked it so much, the rest of the school soon followed and came back on the weekends with their parents to play. Word spread, and so did the patch. The Bauman’s Farm pumpkin patch now has over 25 different activities for kids of all ages as well as homemade food like caramel apples and hot apple cider donuts. Bauman’s is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. - and is open Sundays in October.
