The Right Technology and Specialists for Your Labor and Delivery

Getting ready for the birth of your baby is often very exciting and sometimes a little confusing especially if it is your first time. A very important part of your planning is to decide where your baby will be born. At Sunrise Children’s Hospital, we want you to know that we are prepared to meet your needs and those of your family before and during your labor.

The Labor and Delivery Unit combines leading technology with family-centered care. As a Perinatal Center, we have a team of specialists who can assist with both a normal and complicated delivery. The delivery team consists of highly skilled nurses who are all fetal heart rate certified through AWHONN, Obstetricians, Perinatologists (specialists for high-risk obstetrics) and anesthesia. Should your baby require any type of assistance either at the time of delivery or in the minutes following, we have a team of experts on stand-by so valuable seconds are never lost.

When you arrive to Sunrise Children’s Hospital in labor, you will go to Labor & Delivery Triage which is located near the main elevators in the Sunrise Children’s Hospital lobby. In Triage you will be evaluated by highly trained Labor & Delivery nurses. When you are ready to deliver, you will be taken to the Labor & Delivery suites where you will deliver your baby. After your delivery, you and your baby will go to the Maternal Infant Unit for the remainder of your visit.

We recommend pre-registering for your delivery. Pre-registration is available in the Admitting Department at Sunrise Children’s Hospital. Simply stop by prior to your expected delivery date and fill out the required forms. Please remember to bring a photo ID and insurance information.

To learn more about having your baby at Sunrise Children’s Hospital or to tour the hospital, please call us at 702-233-5437 (KIDS).
