Maternity Care

Heritage Valley Health System offers family-centered maternal/child health services at Heritage Valley Beaver and Heritage Valley Sewickley. You are welcome to include members of your family in this special time. We offer complete support services throughout your maternity process to help you have a healthy pregnancy, and to give your baby a healthy start in life. We care for each baby and family member with individual concern, and strive to ensure that your pregnancy and birth experience meet your expectations.

Our Maternity Care

You’ll find state-of-the-art birthing facilities that include:

  • Labor/delivery/recovery rooms (LDRs) designed for your safety and comfort,
  • A suite equipped for Caesarean births,
  • Postpartum rooms designed for your comfort, and
  • A modern Level I nursery at both hospitals designed for your baby’s care, safety and security.

Heritage Valley Beaver also has a Level II nursery for infants requiring special care. Private rooms are available for all maternity patients.

Our LDR and postpartum rooms offer a home-like atmosphere. Within seconds, your beautiful LDR bedroom suite converts into a fully equipped delivery room. The room’s large, comfortable bed quickly changes to a birthing bed. 

Relationships with Referral Hospitals

For infants who need special intensive care, our hospitals have excellent relationships with referral hospitals in Pittsburgh. When necessary, we work together to stabilize and transport infants.
