Labor & Delivery

Family Birthing

Giving birth is a lifetime memory, and our caregivers aim to make that memory a precious one. We specialize in providing high-quality care to moms and babies during each stage of labor and delivery. And we have lots of experience – 60% of Fresno County’s babies, more than 10,000 a year, are born at our two birthing facilities.

Postpartum Care

In the postpartum unit we have a wonderful team who is dedicated to you, by providing 24-hour care to you and your baby as you recover from the birthing process. You are the most important member of our care team!

The postpartum unit features 15 private and 34 semi-private rooms. We model couplet care – where mom and baby stay together rather than the baby going to the nursery. You and your baby are the most important member of our care team!

High-Risk Pregnancies

Community Regional Medical Center offers the only comprehensive perinatology (field of obstetrics that manages high-risk pregnancies) program in the Central Valley with a perinatologist available at all times, seven days a week and a 84-bed Level III neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) for those babies that may need additional care.

Family Birth Center

The birth of your baby is a precious moment, and our goal is to support your experience with home-like surroundings, a warm atmosphere and a highly-skilled clinical team. We would like you to know that the Women & Children’s Services program at Community Regional Medical Center is the most comprehensive program in the Valley offering the most comprehensive care for both you and your baby.

Women & Children's Services

You and your baby have access to the complete range of health care all in one location – Community Regional Medical Center. Each year roughly 7,000 babies are born at Community Regional – making us one of the largest birthing centers in California, and the Valley’s choice for high-risk deliveries.

Celebrate a Birth

The birth of a new baby is a time of great joy – a life changing event that lasts in our minds and hearts forever. To celebrate the event of each baby born, we provide the opportunity to have their name displayed on the Leon S. & Pete P. Peters Future Generations Baby Honor Wall. It is our way of celebrating the new lives we have helped welcome into the world, while raising important funds for the family birthing center at Clovis Community Medical Center.

Childbirth Services

We are one of the Valley’s premier facilities for maternity and birthing care. Peters Future Generations Center staff provides superior care for mothers, babies and families through the entire birthing process.

Family Birth Center

We are proud to be the home of the Leon S. & Pete P. Peters Future Generations Center, one of the region’s premier maternity and birthing care facilities.
