Having Your Baby at the Los Robles Family Birthing Center
There are very few experiences that can match the joy of bringing a new child into the world. At Los Robles Hospital & Medical Center, our Family Birthing Center understands that the processes of pregnancy and childbirth are both exciting and challenging. Our goal is to provide families with a birthing experience that they can share with one another.
- Family birthing rooms
Each of our Labor, Delivery, and Recovery (LDR) Rooms is fitted with everything your family needs to have a comfortable and enjoyable birthing experience, including a birthing bed, lounge chair, private bathroom, television, wireless internet, telephone, and advanced clinical technology.
- Neonatal intensive care
Los Robles offers an impressive 12-bed Level II NICU to provide infants with advanced medical care from a team of board-certified neonatologists and NICU staff. For many families, having this resource available only a few steps away provides a sense of comfort and reassurance throughout the birthing process.
- Easily accessible surgical suite
If a cesarean birth is needed or preferred, the specially designed surgical suites are easily accessible from within our Family Birthing Center. As your obstetrician cares for you, a dedicated neonatal team will care for your baby. Your partner is encouraged to stay with you so that you are able to welcome your new child together.
- “Mother-Baby” program
Los Robles’ “Mother-Baby” program was developed to encourage the immediate bond between the mother and her child. As a part of this program, the same nurse will continue to care for the mother and baby throughout their stay. Certified lactation nurses are also available to assist with the breastfeeding process.
Los Robles Hospital & Medical Center also offers a wide variety of educational classes to new families. Our education program was developed to answer the many important questions that parents have before and after childbirth. We offer classes providing information about childbirth preparation, breastfeeding, cesarean section, sibling preparedness, and grandparenting. As another important part of the program, we offer orientations and tours of our state-of-the-art birthing center to prospective and expecting parents become more acquainted with our facilities and services.
