Maternal Child Services

Obstetrics

We understand that the birth of your baby is an extraordinary event. The nurses and affiliated doctors at Corona Regional Medical Center have delivered thousands of babies. We would like to thank you for allowing the hospital to participate in your pregnancy during this memorable experience and would like to assure you that you are being cared for by an expert obstetric team.

Like most expectant moms, you probably have many questions about the hospital and the childbirth process. The hospital hopes we will answer most of your questions about your admission and hospital stay. Again, thank you for choosing Corona Regional Medical Center at this special time!

Comfort and Safety

The labor, delivery and recovery suites provide a comfortable, homelike setting and use advanced medical technology. It is a warm, private place to share this intimate experience with family and friends. The labor and delivery nurses are specialists in childbirth and provide competent, compassionate care that will make the birth of your child a positive experience.

Be sure to discuss pain management options with your physician before your baby's delivery so you may make an informed decision. Many alternatives are available, and your doctor is the most knowledgeable person to provide advice on what is best for you and your baby. Your childbirth experience will be much more positive and less stressful if you are prepared and know what to expect.

If you are planning a Cesarean birth, or if one should become necessary, the hospital has specially equipped operating rooms located both on the Labor and Delivery unit and in the Surgical Department. In either location, your support person and labor and delivery nurses will be with you.

Family and Friends

Our staff understands your desire to share this special experience with your family. The family-centered maternity service encourages their support. If you desire, two support persons and your coach may be present to assist you during the birth of your baby. And if the new arrival has brothers or sisters, they are welcome to visit after delivery.

The first hour after the birth, known as the Golden Hour, is set aside for you, your baby and your partner to enjoy uninterrupted bonding, skin-to-skin contact and first breastfeeding. 

The hospital has created an environment on this special unit that enables you and your partner to spend as much time as you want with your baby before you leave the hospital. If this is your first baby, this is a wonderful opportunity to learn about newborn care and practice your new skills under the guidance of the experienced nursing staff. The nurses help ensure that you get the right combination of rest, family bonding and visits with friends while you are at the hospital.

Baby's Special Care

You can be assured that a trained professional is caring for your baby during those times when your baby cannot be with you for medical reasons. The newborn nursery is staffed and equipped to provide the important care your baby needs.

Prior to your delivery, you should arrange for a pediatrician to visit your baby who is enrolled in your health plan and is on staff at Corona Regional Medical Center. If you do not choose a pediatrician, the hospital will arrange to have your baby visited by one of our qualified physicians.

Corona Regional Medical Center offers a variety of parenting and childbirth classes for new mothers, including a one-day "boot camp" prepared childbirth class, baby basics class, a class for big brothers and sisters and more. For more information, visit the Parenting and Childbirth Classes page.
