The First Breath is Very Important to Us

April 03, 2014

Having a baby is a life-changing event and should be a joyous and comfortable one. Providence Tarzana Medical Center is home to award winning maternity care, consistently recognized by leading quality ratings organizations.

With a dedicated Women’s Pavilion designed with mothers and babies in mind, the Labor/Delivery/Recovery (LDR) suites are equipped with state-of-the-art monitoring and delivery capabilities. Mothers have choices about the type of delivery they would like to have, including traditional, natural and doula-guided childbirth, which uses a nonmedical assistant, such as a birth assistant or labor support specialist.

 Following delivery, we advocate keeping mother and baby together in the hospital room to promote enhanced bonding and continuity of care. These are among the many reasons why babies born at Providence Tarzana are now returning as adults to have their own babies.
