Labor & Delivery: Where Families Are Born
Central Valley Medical Center’s birthing suites offer mothers, fathers,
and the newest members of the family a comfortable, home-like atmosphere
to kick off their new journey. Each baby is unique and special - and so
is each delivery and recovery. We offer personalized birthing options
that allow you to customize your birthing plan according to your needs
allowing you to experience, your story your way, so you can focus on welcoming
home your new baby.
Our new Women and Newborn Center, located on the 2nd floor of Central Valley
Medical Center, provides patients with a dedicated cesarean section operating
room, private labor, and delivery birthing suites, all on a secure and
dedicated floor. There is perhaps no life event as momentous as the birth
of a new child, and we are committed to providing you with the best experience possible.

Skilled Medical Staff
You can never be over-prepared for a birth. We have expert registered nurses
and staff on hand 24/7 who safely provide care for you and your baby during
the labor, delivery, and recovery process. Our registered nurses are certified
through the Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric and Neonatal
Nurses (AWHONN) and are nationally certified through the National Certification
Corporation (NCC) in Electronic Fetal Monitoring. If your child requires
any special medical attention, our team is trained and experienced in
providing comprehensive infant care.
Delivering By C-Section
At Central Valley Medical Center, we are dedicated to caring for women
who have had surgery. Moms who deliver by Cesarean section have caregivers
with specialized expertise, which maximizes your recovery process.
Whether your C-section is scheduled ahead of time or performed unexpectedly,
a fully equipped operating room is located in the same unit in the event
that a cesarean section is needed. You and your baby will be transferred
to the recovery room, with skin-to-skin contact introduced as soon as
your baby is stable to start the bonding process.
You and your baby can recoup and rest easy in our recovery rooms that were
designed with our patients and their families in mind. Each private room
is spacious and bright with lots of natural light making each and every
room feel safe, warm, and comfortable just like home. Our rooms we designed
for mothers and babies to be together post-delivery to help in physical
recovery and parent bonding. Rooms include their own bathroom, TV, and
extra sleeping space for a support person. Room-service menus for postpartum
moms and support persons offer a wide variety of tasty selections that
you cant find at other hospitals.
Labor is an exciting experience, but also a difficult one. Our team will
be by your side every step of the way, ready to address your needs as
they arise. The compassionate and knowledgeable delivery staff will be
coaching you through every stage of delivery and post-birth care until
you and your new family leave the hospital to begin your new life.
Security and Well-Newborn Nursery
Your families safety and experience is our top priority. Our labor and
delivery suites are in a dedicated lockdown unit. Visitors must provide
a unique access code givin to each patient to gain entry and exit to the
unit, along with a security ID tag that is put on the baby once the baby
is born and never removed until the baby is discharged.
The newborn nursery at CVMC provides a safe, secure environment where physicians,
nursing, and respiratory staff can assess the health needs of your baby,
and provide more intensive care should the need arise. The nursery provides
family-centered care, and we encourage non-separation of parents and babies
in order to promote bonding and successful breast feeding. However, if
you would like to rest, the nursery is available.
Family and friends are never too far away to share in the joy of a baby's
birth. Central Valley Medical Center's Web Nursery lets friends and
family of our maternity patients the opportunity to view their "new
arrival" soon after delivery.
To protect patient privacy, babies are included in the Web Nursery only
with written parental consent, and we do not use any last names.
