At Paradise Valley Hospital's Birthing Center in San Diego's South
Bay, our goal is to ensure you have a comfortable and positive childbirth

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 baby
with us is knowing that your newborn will be cared for at a hospital that

Top Performer on Key Quality Measures five years in a row.
Our Paradise Valley Birthing Center suites are spacious with plenty of
room for your family to welcome its newest addition. 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.

Maternity Services Offered
Our maternity services Include:
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 a personalized
tour of our maternity unit.
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. Tours are arranged on an individual
basis depending on availability. Call us at
(619) 470-4240 to see about arranging a tour.
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 Education and Support
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.
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.
Newborns receive genetic testing and screenings for hearing, jaundice and
congenital heart disease.
New-Parent Life Transition Support
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.
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 11 AM-8:30 PM.
We accept almost all private insurance plans, Medicare and Medi-Cal. We
can provide financial arrangements and counseling for cash payers.
