Maternity Care Overview

“New Family Center

Vista Health System is a place of new beginnings. Advanced technology and thousands of babies begin life in our comfortable and welcoming environment. At Vista, we are committed to helping expectant parents prepare for the journey from pregnancy to your baby’s arrival. We offer childbirth classes and online resources, as well as, delivery, postpartum and breastfeeding support.

Why Choose The New Family Center?

Delivering your baby is one of the most precious moments in your life. In choosing your hospital, you want the peace of mind in knowing that your new baby is in the hands of experienced doctors and nurses. Plus, you want a beautiful birthing environment that’s warm, friendly and comfortable for you and your family.”

“9 Labor & Delivery Suites

Vista’s New Family Center includes nine birthing suites for labor and delivery, including four large suites for the birth of twins or multiple babies. Each suite provides a home-like environment with comfortable beds, new linens just for Maternity, deluxe bathrooms with walk-in showers, sofa, sleeper/recliner, free Wi-Fi throughout the hospital and flatscreen TVs.

15 Mother/Baby Rooms

After your baby is born, you can rest, relax and begin to bond with your baby in one of our 15 private mother/baby (post-partum) rooms. Just like our deluxe birthing suites, they include a large bathroom with walk-in shower, sleeper/recliner, and flatscreen TVs.

 

After Baby Arrives

At Vista, our caring for you continues after your baby is born. After the months of planning and preparation are over, you both deserve some rest. At Vista, we encourage mom and baby to room together. We offer you and your new family an hour of quiet time immediately following delivery so you can bond, nurse and celebrate with your little bundle of joy.

At Vista, the comfort of moms comes first. Anyone is welcome to visit, but when a mom wants and needs rest, one of our team members will kindly explain that she’s requested some time alone. We encourage extended family and friends to call ahead and ask the nurses for a convenient time to make a brief visit.”

Breastfeeding support: “To ensure a healthy start, our nationally Certified Lactation Consultants and Educators are available to assist mothers and babies with breastfeeding. We make it our job to make you feel comfortable caring for your newborn and yourself. We take time to answer all of your questions and we have years of experience to help put you at ease. ”

Childbirth education: “At Vista, we are committed to helping expectant parents prepare for the journey from pregnancy to your baby’s arrival. Expectant moms and dads can learn all about the “big day” (and the nine months before) at our free childbirth classes offered year round. You’ll learn about changes in the expectant mother’s body, how the baby grows, and what happens when your baby decides to make his or her debut. There are even classes for breastfeeding, newborn care and other important topics. Big brothers and sisters are invited to attend a special Sibling Class to prepare for the new arrival. We believe it’s our job to help get you ready for this happy event and we’ll do what we can to make it an experience to treasure for a lifetime.”
