Home-like Comfort

From the moment you arrive at Banner Desert Medical Center, your comfort is a top priority. They offer private Labor, Delivery and Recovery rooms in home-like settings that allow women to stay in the same room during the birthing experience.

During labor and delivery, they offer many relaxing therapies such as music, massage and aromatherapy. After delivery, mom and baby are settled together into a cozy room, which includes a comfy recliner for dad’s overnight stay. Visiting hours are flexible so families can share in the happy occasion. If a relaxing massage or facial sounds like bliss, you can call the Oasis Spa for an added touch of luxury.

Banner Desert also provides a dedicated inpatient unit just for pregnancies.  The unit offers special care for women with pre-term labor, multiple births and other needs.

They also offer a full complement of childbirth and parenting classes and support available, including counseling and support for breastfeeding.
