Huntington Baby: Pregnancy & Childbirth

Having a baby is one of the most exciting moments of your life, and we want to be part of that. We truly believe that we can provide your baby with the best start in life.

COVID-19 Note: Visitor Policy for Pregnant Patients

For the safety of our expecting parents, babies and healthcare providers, we have restricted the visitor policy. Please review details in our Frequently Asked Questions, or download this PDF with information.

We encourage you to read all our Frequently Asked Questions for updates to our program during the COVID-19 pandemic.

*Usually we recommend expectant parents come take our Maternity Tour & Orientation to experience the comfort, focus on safety, and continuing support that we provide here at Huntington Baby. Unfortunately we have had to suspend all tours, events and classes for the safety of our patients, the community and our healthcare professionals. Check back please, we look forward to seeing you on a tour soon.

We are pleased to share with you that Customized Communication, a provider of online Childbirth Preparation and Breastfeeding classes, is offering their online class free of charge through May 31, 2020. You will have the option to set up an account and access the classes free of charge.

Important COVID-19 FAQs about Labor & Delivery and Visitor Policy

  • Our hospital has strict protocols in place to support infection prevention measures, following best practices and necessary precautions. This includes temperature screenings at the entrance of our hospital.
  • Further, the architecture of the maternal-child unit is naturally separate from the rest of the hospital. Labor and Delivery as well as our post-partum maternity units sit are a separate annex (similar to a wing), with a secure entrance.
  • Safety is our top priority for our expectant mothers.

In line with recommendations for your safety and that of your family, Huntington Hospital has suspended in person childbirth preparation and childcare classes. At this time we are pleased to share with you that Customized Communication, a provider of online Childbirth Preparation and Breastfeeding classes, is offering their online class free of charge through May 31, 2020. Click the button to set up an account and access the classes free of charge.

Yes, arriving expecting parents should follow these directions.

Directions for Parents Coming to Labor & Delivery

  • Arriving 5:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. – Please self-park or valet park, and enter through the main hospital entrance.  Reception will direct you to Labor & Delivery.
  • Arriving between 10:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m. – Please call hospital security at (626) 397-5282 and let the officer know your estimated time of arrival. Please self-park in our North parking lot.  Our main entrance is closed after 10:00 p.m., so a security officer will meet you and unlock the door.

Restricted Visitor Policy

We have updated our visitor policy due to COVID-19. Please review before you arrive at the hospital.

  • Only one healthy birth partner is allowed to accompany the patient.
  • One healthy birth partner for Labor & Delivery and Mother-Baby Unit.
  • Only the patient will be allowed to enter the Obstetrical Emergency Department.

The designated birth partner, along with the patient, will remain in the hospital room at all times during their stay. We will provide meals and other basic care supplies (toothbrush, toothpaste, chapstick, etc.).

  • The birth partner should remain symptom-free and temperature will be taken every shift by a Registered Nurse (RN). The RN will utilize yellow COVID-19 OB screening tools and place in designated binder.

While we hope all of our expectant parents remain illness-free, we do have a contingency plan in the event an expectant mother is ill. In addition to taking the appropriate steps to ensure the safety of our patients, laboring mothers who we suspect may have or have tested positive for COVID-19 will be admitted to a negative pressure room with their support person, and deliver their baby and receive postpartum care in designated spaces with all appropriate precautions. Our team has redoubled efforts to ensure we have protocols in place to keep you and baby safe during this challenging time.

We understand you want to share the joy of a new life with family and loved ones. For the safety and good health of our caregivers and patients, we have limited those allowed on our campus to essential personnel and visitors. Volunteer services are suspended, as are large group gatherings, tours, classes and more. No visitors under the age of 18 are permitted and most visitors are temporarily restricted, with some exceptions. We are allowing expectant parents to bring one birthing partner as a visitor. Please know this is in direct support of the health of you and your child, and we are grateful for your understanding.
