Family-centered care for you and your baby

Providing the best care and most comfort for our new moms and their babies is our privilege. At NorthBay Labor & Delivery, you and your baby will enjoy the comforts of home including spacious, private birthing suites, cozy recliners and private bathrooms - everything you need to make you and your growing family comfortable. Our in-house OB Anesthesiologists are available 24 hours a day, collaborating with your care team to provide pain relief safely through a number of options including nitrous oxide, placement of an epidural catheter for labor or a spinal/general anesthesia for cesarean section.

Part of planning for your birth is choosing the people you want with you through the process. At NorthBay you can have up to five people at a time in your labor room. After your baby is born, one adult support person may spend the night with you, and will help care for your new baby when you need to sleep. Read our full visiting policy by clicking here. Unless problems arise, your baby will stay with you in your room.

Rest assured we also have advanced equipment and technology close at hand, and an onsite newborn intensive care unit (NICU) offering the region's highest level of care for critically ill or premature infants. When you're ready to go home, our lactation specialists and support staff will provide the ongoing education and equipment you need to care for your baby.
