Our patients range from those with uncomplicated deliveries to those who are experiencing high-risk pregnancies requiring special needs. Because of this, we understand the importance of offering personalized care. We strive to accommodate the needs of every patient and family.

With respect for every patient and their birth plan, St. Joseph Hospital institutes a Laborist Program dedicated to enhancing the safety and wellbeing of women and children. St. Joseph Hospital laborists are board-certified obstetricians who remain on the unit solely to care for labor and delivery patients. Laborists are available 24 hours to:

  • Provide support
  • Examine you
  • Evaluate the progress of your labor
  • Detect and respond to laboratory abnormalities
  • Answer your questions

Emergencies can occur and when they do, time is precious. Our laborists are on hand, ready to provide life-saving intervention. In the event that your doctor is unable to make it in time for your delivery, our laborists can safely manage and deliver your baby.

The golden hour

The first hour after a baby is born is a special time for family bonding. By enhancing the experience of a child’s first hour of life, we can greatly improve a baby’s growth and development. Our nurses fully support and encourage this time for families.

Immediately after a baby is born, he/she is dried off and placed skin-to-skin on mom's bare chest. As long as the baby is healthy, they will remain undisturbed until breastfed for the first time. Routine procedures, such as bathing and weighing, will be delayed for the first hour, giving parents the opportunity to cherish this precious moment.

Cord blood banking

Cord blood is the blood that remains in the umbilical cord and placenta after the birth of your baby. The cord blood contains stem cells that can be collected and stored for future medical therapies. St. Joseph Hospital has a relationship with CHOC Children's Cord Blood Bank.

We support the parents' decision to use another Cord Blood Bank. If using another provider, please talk to your obstetrician regarding the necessary collection of cord blood prior to delivery.
