Nurturing moms, nourishing babies for a healthier start

The World Health Organization has determined that breastfeeding provides immediate benefits for children and their mothers, and contributes to a lifetime of better health. Adolescents and adults who were breastfed as babies were less likely to be overweight or obese, or experience Type-2 diabetes, and they’ve been shown to perform better in intelligence tests. Women who nursed their babies reduced their own risks for ovarian and breast cancer.

Parent Education

We offer a wide range of education classes so families expecting newborns are well prepared.

Gift helps moms and babies get off to a great start

Valley moms and babies now benefit from a $150,000 gift from the Fansler Foundation. The funds provide a digital ultrasound system for the Level III neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) and electric breast pumps for the mother/baby unit and high risk antepartum unit at Community Regional Medical Center, as well as equipment, and scholarships for enhanced education in the Mother’s Resource Center on the Community Regional campus.

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 beds in 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!
