Preparing for Delivery

Everything You Need to Have a Healthy Baby

Having a baby is one of the most exciting events in your life. But it can often be a little overwhelming. At Centinela Hospital Medical Center, our team of skilled physicians and nurses is ready to assist patients during their pregnancy — and after their delivery, too.

Preparing for A Healthy Beginning

Our care for you begins the moment you think you’re pregnant. Call us and we will refer you to a physician who provides free pregnancy testing. It is important you continue with regular prenatal care appointments with your physician. If needed, we will help you apply for Medi-Cal.

What New Parents Need to Know

On the day of your delivery, it’s important to know where to go and what to expect when you arrive at the hospital. To help make your arrival go smoothly, we offer hospital tours. Plus, it’s a great way to meet other new parents who are sharing your same experience.

When the Big Day Arrives

Eventually, all the waiting — especially that long last month — is over. It is assuring to know that Centinela Hospital Medical Center provides a wide range of maternity services designed to make each patient’s birth experience as smooth and comfortable as possible.

These include:

  • After delivery, mother and baby can rest comfortably with nurses available to assist in their care
  • Anesthesia specialists available 24 hours
  • Flexible visiting hours for family members and friends
