Having a baby is one of the most exciting, life-changing moments a woman will ever experience. And Huntington Hospital is still one of the safest places to do that.

The hospital currently has strict protocols in place to support infection prevention measures, following best practices and necessary precautions. Huntington’s safety protocols include temperature screenings at the entrance of the hospital, strict use of PPE, along with enhanced cleaning and sterilization processes.

In addition, the architecture of the mother-baby unit is naturally separate from the rest of the hospital. The labor and delivery areas, as well as the post-partum maternity unit, are a separate annex with a secure entrance.

Huntington Hospital provides safe family-centered care for expectant moms 24 hours a day. The personalized birthing experience includes access to board certified OBGYN physicians and anesthesiologists, an obstetrical emergency department and a dedicated high-risk pregnancy unit, as well as registered nurses from the hospital’s “Baby Bonding Team” who monitor the health of newborns and help with skin-to-skin care and breastfeeding.

The hospital has a neonatologist on site 24 hours a day in its level three NICU, providing the most advanced neonatal intensive care available in the San Gabriel Valley. Virtual-live classes are also available to support new moms from pregnancy to parenthood.
