Women’s and Children’s Services

At Parkview Hospital, we are honored to help thousands of babies start their lives in our bestBeginnings program.  As a patient-centered hospital, we provide the individualized attention and care that you and your baby deserve. We're here for you during your pregnancy, at your baby's birth, and beyond. Our services are designed to promote a healthy pregnancy, a safe delivery, and provide support after you leave the hospital.

Throughout your pregnancy, you can participate in many free classes that will help you prepare for your baby’s arrival. These classes are designed to promote a healthy pregnancy and ensure a safe delivery for the newest member of your family.

During your stay, you’ll feel right at home in our maternity unit. We’ve designed a comfortable environment staffed by an experienced team of medical professionals - many of whom have been with our mother/baby unit for more than 15 years. 

We're happy to assist you by phone with pre-registration for your delivery. Please call our admitting department at  951-352-5610.

Maternity Patients Entrance

In an ongoing effort to protect the health and safety of our maternity patients during the COVID-19 outbreak, we have designated a separate entrance for maternity patients and their visitors.

The new Maternity Entrance is located on Miller Street (look for the awning and banner over the maternity entrance doors), with designated parking in the hospital lot at the Miller Street side of the hospital. The entrance is open 24/7 - just ring the doorbell. As an additional measure of safety, all patients and visitors entering through the maternity entrance will have their temperature screened by our staff.

Our temporary visitors policy is as follows:

Adults ages 18 and up only

The visitor/support person must provide proof of COVID vaccination or a negative COVID test (obtained within the prior 72 hours). We understand the timing of the COVID test may be difficult. In emergent situations, this will not be required. Testing will be available in the ED if needed.

NICU: One (1) parent allowed at a time

LABOR & DELIVERY: One (1) support person and the presence of a doula if desired

We hope the new, private entrance will offer you a level of comfort during this difficult time. We’re here for you, and we look forward to delivering your bestBeginning!

Free COVID-19 Testing for Maternity Patients

In support of our expectant mothers and to offer peace of mind as you near delivery, Parkview offers free rapid-testing to all maternity patients upon admission.
