Empowered birth experience

Care for low to moderate-risk pregnancies

Having a baby is a moment you'll cherish for the rest of your life. Begin your journey in a setting that's focused on you. San Martin Hospital is a Level I facility by the Maternal Levels of Care Verification program through The Joint Commission, which means we specialize in low to moderate-risk pregnancies for babies with a gestational period of 35 weeks or more. 

At San Martin Hospital, we empower you to deliver your baby in the way that is most comfortable to you, whether you want to deliver in an unconventional position, walk, or sit during labor---and we won’t rush you to have your baby.

Private Mother/Baby Suites

Our highly trained and caring staff will work with you on your timeline and be there with you every step of the way through your birth experience.

From the moment you check in to the moment you depart, all of your exceptional care happens in one spacious, private suite. 

At San Martín, moms don’t switch rooms — you will be in the same suite your entire experience. In fact, we are the only hospital in the Las Vegas Valley that operates on this LDRP model. That means you labor, deliver, recover, and complete postpartum care in the same suite. Here, you’ll do more bonding and less moving.

Our birthing suites are large, designed to give Mom plenty of room to move around during labor, with fully adjustable birthing beds, private bathrooms with showers, and with pull-out beds for significant others to spend the night. We also support rooming-in, allowing Mom and baby to get to know each other during this special time.

At San Martin, we offer the following amenities:

  • Spacious, private suite for labor, delivery, recover and postpartum care
  • In-room care for your newborn
  • Around-the-clock, board-certified laborists
  • Lactation support team of Lactation Consultants and Counselors
  • Wireless fetal monitors that allow you the freedom to move around during labor (not available with epidural)
  • Visiting privileges for all family members
  • Baby Bistro for drinks and snacks
  • Celebratory dinner for the proud parents
  • Baby portraits by Bella Baby Photography available upon request
  • Alarm system for added security
  • Birth lullaby played in the hospital after childbirth
  • Optional Birth Announcement on our digital billboards

Frequently Asked Questions

We welcome doulas. If you plan to have one, we ask that you note this on your birth plan and to discuss it with your physician so they are aware. Doulas are often present during labor and delivery providing continuous support and studies have shown they can improve birth outcomes. Restrictions do apply during a cesarean section, but generally doulas are welcome during that procedure as well.

Nitrous oxide, also known as “laughing gas,” is a non-opioid pain relief option commonly used during delivery. Nitrous oxide is mixed with oxygen and breathed through a mask or mouthpiece while you’re in labor.

Although we believe that breastfeeding is the best way to feed your baby, we do also offer formula options. Breastfeeding may not work for everyone and it can be very stressful for a new Mom. We recommend having a conversation with your pediatrician about feeding preferences. Baby formula is certainly available upon request.

Yes, VBACs are welcome and we encourage you to talk with your physician to see if you are a candidate for this procedure. We have a board certified OB/GYN physician on site at all times as part of our laborist program who will be able to monitor your labor progress and can deliver your baby if needed as well.

Insurance plans change periodically.  Visit the Insurance Plans page to view the plans currently accepted at St. Rose Dominican hospitals. Participation should be validated by contacting your insurance company.

Before you go home from the hospital, a member of the St. Rose staff will provide you with a form to complete to file your baby's record of birth the State of Nevada and for their Social Security number.

Birth certificates may be requested online by visiting, by mail or dropped off in an office. Please note that the Southern Nevada Health District charges a fee to purchase the first Birth Certificate and for each additional copy.
