At Castleview Hospital, we believe that childbirth is a family experience. We make accommodations to be sure the family and friends you'd like to be there can share in the experience.
Our birthing unit provides expectant families with unique accommodations you won't find anywhere else in central Utah. The state-of-the-art birthing suites combined with beautifully decorated upscale furnishings, provide you with a relaxing and comfortable laboring process. Once your baby arrives, you can use the in-room custom glider for rocking your baby to sleep for the first time.
Remember that labor can be very overwhelming and emotional, and to provide the safest delivery it is best to limit visitors to only those who you want to provide support.
The Women's Care Birthing Center permits 24-hour visitation for your primary support people. All other visitors should follow the hospital visitation policy. Your new baby's siblings may visit with an adult. This includes babies being held and in strollers. Anyone sick or recently exposed (within the past three weeks) to an infectious disease (such as chicken pox) should not visit the Birthing Center.
Labor and Deliver Room
Visitors may be asked to step out if you'd like them to or in order for staff to provide care.
After Your Baby is Born
You will need some time to physically and emotionally recover from labor and delivery. Following your baby's birth, you will be able to be together to bond and get to know each other. Your baby will then go to the Nursery to be measured and weighed. After your doctor completes your care following delivery and your baby has been examined and foot printed (for security purposes), your support person will be able to hold your baby. You may stay for an hour or two in the Labor and Delivery Room, your nurse will check on you during your recovery. Then, you will be transferred to a Postpartum Room where your family and friends can visit with you.
For your convenience, there are phones in the Birthing Suites as well as the Postpartum Rooms. Our staff will get messages to you; however, protecting your confidentiality we will not give out information regarding you or your baby.
To make outgoing calls, dial 9 and the area code. Regional and long distance calls require a calling card or operator assistance.
