The Best for Mother and Child
As the long anticipated day of your baby's birth approaches, you may feel excited, happy, worried and fearful. Learning what to expect and preparing for the big event are important ways you can help yourself and your baby.

We offer state-of-the-art, quality care for expectant mothers and their babies. From childbirth education, to a positive birthing experience, we are dedicated to providing families with a warm, relaxed atmosphere in which to experience one of life's greatest moments.

The concept of family-centered care is advocated throughout the Mother-Baby Department.
The Labor and Delivery unit is designed to convey a home-like feel and features four nicely decorated, private labor, delivery and recovery suites. Each Labor and Delivery Room is equipped with equipment for monitoring mother and baby and for delivery in the room. Most deliveries occur in the private suites, but the operating room is nearby should a need arise.
Our nurses support the family throughout the birth process from birth to discharge home. For most mothers that means simple comfort measures, such as leisurely showers and walking with their family. No matter what the birth experience, labor and delivery nurses are there to guide and assist Mom and the family.
Education is an important part of the labor and delivery experience as well. Madera Community Hospital offers extensive classes and parenting resources before and after delivery. Parents can preview the hospital in the OB Tour and choose from classes in childbirth, breastfeeding and infant care.
