Birth Center Services
Sequoia's labor and delivery facilities are tailored to the needs of families. Our staff cares for you with genuine warmth, dignity and respect. During labor and the birth of your baby, your privacy, comfort and safety are of the utmost importance.
At the Sequoia Birth Center, women labor, give birth and recover with their new babies in a private room equipped with a special birthing bed. It's furnished to make you, your family and your baby feel comfortable and at home, with ready access to the latest medical equipment, just in case it's needed.
Most moms who deliver at Sequoia remain in the very same private room for their entire stay-from labor until they go home with their newborns. Healthy babies are cared for right in the home-like room and stay with their new families as much as desired. Each room is equipped with delivery and neonatal resuscitation equipment.
Any high-risk delivery is attended by a team of Lucile Packard Children's Hospital staff including a physician from the Special Care Nursery and a respiratory therapist if necessary.
The Sequoia Birth Center is proud to offer couplet care, which means both mom and baby are cared for by the same nurse for the duration of their stay. That familiarity means better communication and care that is specially designed for the needs of you and your baby.
Fetal Monitor Telemetry
Expectant moms who need their vital signs to be monitored during delivery shouldn't lose mobility during labor. Our fetal monitoring equipment allows women the comfort of walking around the Birth Center while never compromising their safety or medical treatment.
