AT SANTA CLARA VALLEY MEDICAL CENTER
LABOR & DELIVERY
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.
During labor and delivery, mothers stay in one of our private birthing suites and newly expanded private postpartum maternity suites, which include a private bathroom, television, and a sleeper chair for a partner or a labor coach. Our labor and delivery rooms are equipped with advanced technology and staffed by compassionate nurses who are dedicated to providing
high-quality and safe care for mothers and babies. Our neonatal intensive care unit is fully equipped with 40 licensed NICU beds.
Our staff reflects the diversity of the patients we serve. Many staff are bilingual with fluency in Spanish, Vietnamese, Mandarin, Korean and Tagalog. Our care team also includes interpreters who provide translation services 24/7 with expertise in over 150 spoken languages and dialects.
DELAYED CORD CLAMPING
Research has shown that delayed (umbilical) cord clamping for up to three minutes immediately following birth improves health outcomes for all babies. Delayed cord clamping was pioneered in our network and is now commonly practiced in hospitals worldwide.
