Comfortable Birthing Suites
At Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Center Torrance, the centerpiece of our obstetrics unit is our birthing suites. Each suite is equipped with a birthing bed designed to provide optimum comfort for the mother during labor, which can be quickly converted for delivery.
Each suite also includes a comfortable place for the father or significant other to stay, as well as room for other family members who wish to participate in the birthing experience. There is room in each suite for a bassinet so mothers can remain with their babies throughout their stay at the hospital. Many other special touches include:
- Private bathrooms with showers in each suite, with availability of bathtubs for labor relaxation
- Refrigerators, video, and internet access
- A squatting bar used during labor to assist while pushing as well as other laboring tools.
New parents can remain assured that the safety of mother and baby is our priority. Each suite contains all of the medical and diagnostic equipment necessary to monitor both mother and baby throughout the birthing process.
