Now that you have chosen ValleyCare for your special delivery, the following information will help you prepare for your stay.
While paperwork is a necessary part of your stay, pre-registration is available to help expedite the registration process when you arrive for delivery and you are encouraged to pre-register as early as possible. Forms are available from the Admitting Office at ValleyCare or your physician's office, or you may preregister online. The Admitting Office is also available to answer any questions you may have about your insurance coverage before your delivery.
Admission to the Hospital
Upon arrival, please enter the hospital through the emergency admitting entrance unless otherwise directed. You will then be escorted to the Maternal Child Department. After you are comfortably settled in your birthing suite, your nurse will review your plan and history, assess your condition and notify your physician of your progress. The nurse will also complete any paperwork needed, including information regarding your child's birth certificate.
What to Bring
While ValleyCare provides what you will need to care for yourself and your baby during your stay, you are encouraged to bring any additional items that will help you adjust or add comfort throughout your stay. You will want to have your items packed and ready a few weeks in advance of your due date. This way, you will be ready to go when the time is right. Remember to bring your pediatrician's name and phone number.
Please review the packing list for a list of suggested items.
