Maternal Child Health

We understand that pregnancy and giving birth is a special time for you and your family. Whether you are a first-time mom or you have been down this road before, you can rely on our dedicated team to provide a healthy beginning to a lifetime of happiness.

As the only Baby-Friendly Hospital in Tulare County, we adhere to guidelines set by FIRST 5 CALIFORNIA and BABY-FRIENDLY USA, promoting practices such as skin-to-skin bonding and breastfeeding within one hour of birth. Additionally, our Level 2 Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) provides specialized care for neonates 34 weeks and older. With access to 24-hour pediatric hospitalists and telemedicine consultation with Valley Children's Hospital, we ensure comprehensive care for those needing higher-level support.
