Valley Hospital’s family-centered holistic philosophy on childbirth makes having a baby at Valley a memorable experience.
Our private birthing rooms, policies concerning multiple birth coaches and siblings attending birth, and extended visiting hours go a long way toward making your dreams a reality. Our family-centered approach includes:
- Private rooms for all moms;
- Newly designed, labor, delivery, recovery, postpartum suites;
- Fast, friendly and helpful admission and discharge service;
- Electronic infant security system;
- Open visiting hours for family and friends;
- Extra coaches, siblings and midwives attending birth, if desired; and
- Rooming-in for babies.
Quiet Time is now being observed on Valley’s Mother/Baby units from 1 to 3:30 p.m. every day. These two and a half hours of uninterrupted time provides you, your support person, and your baby with much-needed rest and privacy during your short stay.
Quiet Time is designed to provide time for family bonding, and allows families to practice what we teach: Be sure to rest when the baby is resting. In addition, families are better able to room-in at night when they have had some resting time during the day.
Visitors other than your support person who arrive during this time will be asked to wait in the waiting room to respect your need for rest.
A Note About Pacifiers: As recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics, Valley is no longer providing pacifiers for newborns. If you would like your baby to have a pacifier, please feel free to provide your own.
