Caring for women and their children
The birth of a baby is the birth of a family. At Providence Tarzana, caring for women also includes caring for babies. Opened in 1983, the Providence Tarzana Women's Pavilion was established to provide a full spectrum of care before, during and after pregnancy in a state-of-the-art facility, all in one convenient location. A leader in comprehensive maternal child health care, the Providence Tarzana Women's Pavilion has been designed to ensure the healthiest possible pregnancies, deliveries and babies.
The Providence Tarzana Women's Pavilion focuses on family-centered care, beginning with education classes about pregnancy, childbirth, baby care, and parenting. Obstetricians, maternal-fetal medicine specialists, certified nurses, and lactation consultants all work together to provide the best possible birth experience.
For those times, however, when the unexpected occurs, it's comforting for new parents to know that Providence Tarzana Women's Pavilion also houses a Level III neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), which has consistently ranked in the top ten percent in the nation.
“Before 39 weeks, sometimes there are problems with readiness to live outside the womb,” Dr. Danielzadeh says. Providence now delivers after at least 39 weeks’ gestation unless medical necessity dictates otherwise.
Most insurance plans that offer maternity benefits will include well-baby care under the mother’s plan for the first 30 days following birth.
When you’re deciding where to have your baby, you want to consider every aspect of care – including the specialized services you’ll need if something doesn’t go as planned.
