Each year our Labor & Delivery Department welcomes over 5,000 children into the world, making us the largest academic birth center in the state. Highly skilled physicians, residents and nurses staff the department. Working as a team, they are available to guide and assist you at all times. Their goal is to make your stay as calm and comfortable as possible.
During your labor and delivery, you will stay in one of our private birthing rooms. These rooms include a private bathroom and television. Your partner or labor coach can be present and a sleeper chair will be provided in your private room. Please know that during your postpartum stay in our maternal infant care center, guests cannot remain in your room overnight.
At Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, we recognize the diversity of our patient population. This diversity is reflected in our staff. Many of our employees are bilingual with fluency in Spanish, Vietnamese, Cantonese, Korean and Punjabi.
To ensure clear communication and accommodate a wide variety of cultural needs, we also have 24/7 access to a telephonic interpretation service for over 120 other languages and dialects.
Whether it is a complex medical intervention or a simple comfort measure, our team of physicians, nurses and other medical professionals are committed to providing quality care to you and your baby.
