The feelings and emotions you experience over the coming months and years will be unique to you. That’s part of what makes them so special. But there are certain things you can expect, anticipate, prepare for and enjoy at various stages along the way. To help you make the most of this very important time, we have prepared this resource. This guide will help you prepare for your child’s birth and your stay at Dignity Health’s Chandler Regional Medical Center.
Our certification allows us to care for babies 28 weeks gestation and older. The Birthing Center has highly skilled nurses with experience caring for newborns requiring extra monitoring. A neonatal nurse practitioner, with training to handle any emergency that may arise during labor or delivery, is on site at all times.
Your health is just as important the months following the birth of your baby as it is while you are pregnant. A comfortable antepartum and healthy and successful postpartum recovery is important for you, your new baby and your family.
If your baby was exposed to drugs like opiates while you were pregnant, he or she may start to experience symptoms as soon as 24 to 48 hours after birth. We now have a new and different approach called Eat, Sleep, Console.
The goal is for you or other designated family members to stay at the bedside the entire time to take care of your baby because we believe your baby will do best with you. Members of our team will also be there to assist you.
Chandler Regional's neonatal intensive care unit provides special monitoring for babies who are very sick or were born prematurely. Our twelve private NICU rooms provide overnight accommodations for one caregiver and feature a private restroom/shower.
Most newborns are very sleepy the first 24 hours or so after birth. It is essential to wake your baby for feeding every two to three hours to ensure that he or she adjusts to the process and starts to eat.
Chandler Regional, in conjunction with the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS), performs standard genetic testing in newborns to identify 29 disorders. In doing so, ADHS is able to detect rare, inherited disorders in Arizona newborns and provide follow-up services to save lives and improve quality of life.

Make your admission to the hospital much easier by pre-registering. This gives us time to gather important information about you before you arrive at the hospital. You can pre-register online, by mail, phone or at the hospital.
Chandler Regional’s skin-to-skin bonding program, Kangaroo Care, encourages mom and dad to bond with their newborn immediately after birth. The program establishes a warm, welcoming environment that fosters early closeness and connection for the new family.
