​What to Expect

Childbirth at Valley Hospital

When you arrive at MultiCare Valley Hospital to have your baby, you will stay in your own private suite throughout labor, delivery and recovery. After delivery, you may keep your baby with you in your suite or use our nursery services if you want to get some uninterrupted sleep.

Our central fetal monitoring system allows the medical staff to check your labor progress on a continual basis. If unexpected complications arise, we have operating rooms located within our birthing center, as well as obstetric surgical technicians on staff around the clock so that C-sections can be performed within a matter of minutes, if needed. To make you as comfortable as possible during labor, we have anesthesiologists available 24 hours a day to provide epidural anesthesia. And our special care nursery is available for newborns with complex medical needs.

Our staff of medical professionals are highly trained and experienced in all areas of obstetrics and perinatal care. Our skilled nurses will be by your side throughout your stay — guiding you through the process of labor, delivery and recovery. And they will give you and your family the personalized attention for which we are known.

We look forward to making your baby's arrival everything you want it to be — a warm, secure and memorable experience to be shared for generations to come.
