Women's Services

Women's Health Care for Every Age

At Valley Presbyterian Hospital, we are here to meet women’s health care needs for every stage of life from the birth of a baby through menopause and beyond. Our Women’s Services unit is run by staff who understand first-hand that women’s needs are complex and ever changing. With compassion and skill, our teams of specialized physicians, nurses, and educators offer preventative health screenings, free classes, maternity care, post-delivery neonatal services, medical diagnoses and treatments, and support for women’s sexual and reproductive health. These are some of the services that we provide:

Maternity Services

The Labor & Delivery unit at Valley Presbyterian Hospital is one of the busiest in the San Fernando Valley. Our highly trained staff is dedicated to providing you comfort, support and safety throughout your pregnancy, birth and early parenthood. During your pregnancy, we offer free classes to help you prepare for childbirth, learn how to breastfeed, and discover how to care for your newborn. For the next stage in your journey, our Labor and Delivery Room has special amenities to make you feel at home, with a family-centered environment where loved ones can be part of your birthing experience. A skilled nurse will work closely with you, your family and physician to ensure you have the best care possible. After your delivery, our Postpartum room provides a comfortable, quiet experience for you and your baby to bond.

Perinatal Center

Most women have routine pregnancies but some have medical difficulties related to their health or the health of their baby. If you have a high-risk pregnancy with conditions such as high blood pressure or diabetes, or experience complications during your pregnancy, our Perinatal Center offers comprehensive and specialized services to diagnose and provide life-saving interventions. Our goal is to ensure the best possible outcome with your health and for delivering a healthy baby. Led by Medical Director Marie Beall, MD, board-certified perinatologists, specially trained nurses, and other experts work with your primary care doctor to monitor and provide treatment in a comfortable environment.

Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

Most babies are born healthy but in the unlikely event that your baby needs extra medical attention after delivery, you can take comfort in knowing that our NICU provides the highest level of care available for newborns that are born ill or premature. Our NICU has board-certified neonatal doctors, a round-the-clock team of nurses with specialized training, and therapists, dietitians and lactation consultants ready to provide compassionate care. The NICU team at Valley Presbyterian is dedicated to providing a supportive environment not only for the critical care needs of your baby, but also one that encourages family involvement.
