Maternity Services Offered

Our maternity services Include:

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 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 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 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.

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.

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.
