Maternity / Infant Care

What could be more important in a community medical center than good prenatal care, a safe and happy delivery, a healthy infancy and immediate help in a medical crisis? With proven excellence in maternal and infant services, our community trusts Queen of the Valley to deliver the area's next generation.

Meeting Women's Healthcare Needs

From adolescence to young adulthood, parenthood to menopause and beyond, Queen of the Valley Medical Center provides high quality care along the entire spectrum of a woman's life. Board-certified physicians and certified nurse midwives offer a full range of gynecological and obstetrical care whatever the age or medical condition.

Family-Centered Maternity Care
For over 50 years, women throughout the Napa Valley have entrusted Queen of the Valley Medical Center with the lives of their new babies. From childbirth and breastfeeding classes to birth plans and labor coaching, we offer a comprehensive array of maternity services to help ensure the healthiest, safest pregnancy possible. Our caring, highly trained medical team is equipped to handle the most complicated pregnancies and works hard to create just the right birthing experience for expectant mothers and their families.

Bilingual Maternity Care
Because so many Napa residents turn to their native Spanish in stressful times, we make a special effort to hire bilingual nurses to coach all our maternity nurses in the cultural preferences of Hispanic families. This kind of sensitivity is a mark of our values and a measure of our commitment to all of the families we serve.

Prenatal Education
We offer not just one maternity class but an entire series of courses for every stage of pregnancy and early parenting, all with an emphasis on the emotional bonding that is the key to every baby's good health. We also work closely with other maternal and child care providers in the community to fill in any gaps in prenatal education and to cross refer families who have special needs. For more information, view the class and support group calendars, or call 707- 251-2050.

Welcome Every Baby Program

Queen of the Valley Medical Center is a sponsor participant in the community based Touchpoints home visiting program for every new baby in the Napa Valley. As a gift from the community, a specially trained nurse will visit you in your home before your baby is born and can provide support and home visits until your baby is 4 months old. Home visits focus on your baby's development, attachment and "falling in love" with your baby, and helping your baby to learn and grow. The home visit team is trained in child and family development, attachment, infant feeding, community resources and Dr. T. Berry Brazelton's Touchpoints Model. If you would like to participate in Welcome Every Baby, call 707-259-8190 for more information and to sign up.
