'The best place you never want to be'

Kim Powell cried the day she left Community Regional Medical Center’s antepartum unit for women who are experiencing trouble with their pregnancy. She didn’t want to leave, even though it meant she was going to be delivering her baby and getting off six weeks of bed rest.

Planning to become pregnant?

Registered Nurse Margie Hill of the Health Condition Management Program at Community Medical Centers offers healthful tips to consider before you conceive.

The potential for birth defects and complicated pregnancies are the last thing anyone wants to contend with when welcoming a new baby into their family. But according to the March of Dimes, nearly 21-million babies worldwide are born prematurely or with serious birth defects.

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.
