BIRTH CENTER

AT SANTA CLARA VALLEY MEDICAL CENTER

MOTHER BABY UNIT

Our physicians, nurses and family-centered care team provide the expertise and warm environment needed for the entire childbirth experience. Our birth center offers newly expanded private postpartum maternity suites, which include a private bathroom, television, and sleeper chair.

Our services include:

  • 27/4 access to qualified, supportive nursing staff and providers
  • Inpatient and outpatient newborn hearing assessments
  • Universal screening for all infants for jaundice (condition caused by a buildup of bilirubin, a yellow chemical produced by the breakdown of red blood cells)
  • Certified lactation specialists and onsite support
  • Lactation support groups

BREASTFEEDING SUPPORT

In addition to certified lactation specialists, staff in our Birth Center are trained to assist in breastfeeding, the use of breast pumps, hand expression and skin-to-skin bonding. This dedication has resulted in some of the highest breastfeeding rates in the Bay Area. We support the practice of rooming-in to allow mothers and babies to remain together 24 hours a day.
