Having Your Baby
After delivering the babies of the Lompoc Valley for more than 70 years, Lompoc Valley Medical Center is committed to providing you with personalized care, while offering advanced technological resources, medical expertise, and education. The dedicated and caring nursing staff is here to honor your birth plan and your choices. With 6 labor, delivery recovery and postpartum suites and a state of the art Cesarean operating room, our birthing center is prepared to make each birth as comfortable and as safe as possible.
All obstetric patients should pre-register at least 8 to 12 weeks prior to their due date. This will allow the hospital to verify insurance coverage and counsel the patient on various payment options. Validating insurance and billing information prior to the delivery date can reduce a patient’s anxiety upon arrival to the hospital by allowing them to be admitted immediately.
Labor & Delivery Suites
These single-patient rooms have private bathrooms and are outfitted with all of the amenities to make you feel at home during the patient's stay. Each room is furnished with a sleeper sofa for your partner and comfortable seating for guests.
Our birthing rooms are all single-patient rooms, with private bathrooms and amenities such as a pull-out couch for family members, high-definition flat screen television, wireless internet, rocking chairs, bathroom bidets and more.
Birthing Center Tours
Expectant mothers and birthing coaches are invited to tour the Birthing Center at Lompoc Valley Medical Center in order to familiarize themselves with our philosophy of family-centered birth. The tour includes information on general hospital policies, admitting processes, perinatal education programs, and a sneak-peek at our labor, delivery and recovery suites.
