"Preparing for Baby" Guide
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.
Special Care Nursery
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.
AntePartum and Postpartum Care
Your health is just as important the months following the birth of your baby as it is while you are pregnant. A comfortable antipartum and healthy and successful postpartum recovery is important for you, your new baby and your family.
Docent Guides Program
Whether this is your first child or your fourth, it helps having someone guide you on your journey so you feel confident and prepared. That’s where Dignity Health’s Docent Guides come in! As a first-of-its-kind program in Arizona, our Docent Guides are here to serve as a helpful resource for you and your family.
Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)
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.
Feeding Your Baby
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.
Prenatal Education & Resources
Chandler Regional’s Family Birth Center offers a variety of classes and support groups help educate and prepare expectant families. Visit our classes and events section for a complete listing and registration.
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.
Skin to Skin Bonding
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.
Welcoming Baby Home
