Preparing for Your Stay

Life's journey deserves the best possible start.

Preparing For Your Stay

We know you want to prepare as much as possible before labor begins and you come to the hospital.

The following resources will help you find the right Huntington Hospital doctor, get your pre-admission documentation in order, and get packed so you can breathe easy while you wait for baby.

More than 80 physicians have privileges to deliver babies at Huntington Hospital. After your baby is born, he or she will need to be examined by a pediatrician. If your pediatrician does not have privileges at Huntington Hospital, we have an on-staff pediatrician available.

Completing your Labor & Delivery Pre-Registration form in advance will help make your arrival at L&D as smooth as possible. We ask you to pre-register by your 7th month of pregnancy to allow us two months to process your form.

Note that we process pre-registration forms based on expected delivery date, and you will receive an email confirmation from Huntington Hospital letting you know that we received your form, and again when it has been processed.

If you have any pre-registration questions please contact the Huntington Hospital Call Center at (626) 397-5600.

We offer Virtual Live pregnancy, childbirth and childcare classes as a complimentary service to our Huntington families.

These classes are customized for Huntington Hospital, delivered by credentialed and certified instructors, and offered free of charge to parents delivering at Huntington Hospital. Note these classes are free of charge but do require advanced registration.

Register online for our childbirth and parenting classes.

We want to be able to meet your needs during your birth experience.

Write out your preferences for your support person, managing labor discomfort, items you will bring from home to help you relax and stay comfortable, and list any health issues or special care we need to consider for you or baby. Having this information on paper will help you plan and make it easy to inform your birth team when you arrive.

Remember this is a guideline and it may change as your needs change.

It’s a good idea to pack your hospital bag for baby in advance so it’s ready to go when it’s time. Our checklist will help you stay calm and ensure you have everything you need during your stay.​
