The Women & Children's Center at Vail Valley Medical Center consists of seven rooms devoted to labor, delivery, recovery and postpartum (LDRP). Each room is furnished and decorated to help soothe and relax during labor and to assist during recovery. Rooms include a specially designed mother's bed, sofa bed for the mother's partner/support person, Jacuzzi tub and shower, flat-screen television with music and nature scenes for relaxation and spectacular views of Vail Mountain. Our operating suite is dedicated to meeting the special needs of obstetrical surgery, and an additional four rooms are available for any patient requiring special care. In addition, a spacious waiting area welcomes friends and family. Room service is available at the patient's request, and valet parking is an additional amenity for women and their partner.
Whether you visit the Women & Children's Center for antepartum (before delivery) testing and monitoring, preterm labor, natural or epidural-managed childbirth, induction or Cesarean section, the staff is well-equipped to care for you and your baby. Each birthing suite has a fetal monitor for physicians and nurses to monitor your baby's heartbeat and your contraction pattern. We offer birthing balls and birthing bars for natural childbirth. We also provide portable fetal monitoring devices if you'd like to walk around during labor.
