Perinatology

'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.

Triplets turn 5

Gracee, Ashlee, Emilee and their parents Matthew and Cadee Peters visited Community Regional Medical Center’s neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) to celebrate a milestone – their fifth birthdays.

The active 5-year-old girls stopped and posed for a photo with Dr. Krishnakumar Rajani, director of the neonatal program at Community Regional Medical Center, who was there when they were born.

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.

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.

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.
