At Paradise Valley Hospital's Birthing Center, our goal is to ensure you have a comfortable and positive childbirth experience — after all, your baby will be born in Paradise!

Choosing a birthing center is one of the biggest decisions you'll ever make. We offer family-focused care to support you and your baby from pregnancy through childbirth. Among the many comforting reasons to have your with us is knowing that your newborn will be cared for at a hospital that is part of the "Top 15 Health Systems in the United States"—only two California hospital systems have achieved this distinguished national designation in 2013.

Our Paradise Valley Birthing Center suites are spacious with plenty of room for your family to welcome the newest addition to your family. We provide traditional labor and delivery services for mothers-to-be. We understand that quiet environment is just what you need after giving birth, so we provide specialized nurses to care for you and your newborn in a peaceful atmosphere.

Equally important, our compassionate and caring doctors and nurses have access to advanced technology and services to ensure you and your baby are safe throughout labor and delivery process.

Thank you for considering letting us be a part of your special day!

Maternity Tours

A healthy start begins with preparing early for a healthy pregnancy, delivery and new baby. To get started, we encourage you to join us for refreshments and a tour of our maternity unit at 2 p.m.

First and Third Tuesday of Each Month - Spanish

Second Tuesday of Each Month - English

During the tour, you will tour the labor, delivery, recovery and post-partum (LDRP) suites, learn what to expect during your hospital stay and discuss any questions or concerns you may have. Register for the tour here.

Ultrasound Procedures

Ultrasound is a painless procedure that allows your doctor to check the baby's progress and well being while still in the uterus. If necessary, your physician will order this test for you.

Breastfeeding

For the good health of babies and their mothers, we encourage new mothers to breastfeed, when possible, and we offer support to make it an easy, enjoyable experience for you and your baby. Our experienced breastfeeding educator is ready to help you with any challenges you may have in breastfeeding or weaning your baby.

Cesarean Births

If your physician has scheduled you for a Cesarean birth, you are asked to arrive at Paradise Valley Birthing Center approximately two hours before your scheduled delivery time or as instructed by your physician. At this time, you will be admitted and instructed on your pre- and post-op care. At the discretion of the anesthesia provider, typically one person may be allowed to be with the mother during a Cesarean delivery.

Newborn Screenings

Newborns receive genetic testing and screenings for hearing, jaundice and congenital heart disease.

Social Services

We understand that while having a baby is a joyful, wonderful experience, it can also be a stressful time for new parents. A new baby can bring new worries and new responsibilities. During your stay at Paradise Valley Hospital, a social worker who specializes in maternal/child health is available to assist you during this life transition. The Social Services department can provide you with emotional support, educational materials and referrals to community resources. Please let us know if we can help you in any way.

Visitors

At the Paradise Valley Birthing Center, we encourage family to be involved in supporting you during your stay and helping to celebrate the miracle of a new life. Your immediate family may visit, at your request and your physician’s discretion. Please specify those members of your immediate family when checking into the hospital. Visiting hours are 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
