Services at Banner Estrella Medical Center  

Maternity Services


The doctors and staff of Maternity Services at Banner Estrella Medical Center work together to meet the needs of each mother-to-be and baby throughout pregnancy, labor, delivery and recovery.


All expectant mothers should receive our Banner Health Parents-to-be Handbook from their physician’s office, which covers prenatal advice, hospital information and home care education topics.

Banner Estrella offers a number of classes to prepare you for your delivery. These classes include tours of the department (OB Orientation), Preparing for Childbirth, Caring for your Baby and Learning How to Breastfeed.

Banner Estrella also supports breastfeeding mothers with special lactation consultants and post-delivery support groups.

Circle of Mothers postpartum support group is held every Wednesday
from 10 to 11:30 a.m. in the Conference Center lobby. There is no charge and walk-ins are welcome


Our staff provides personalized care using the latest technology in a family-centered environment with spacious, private rooms. Mothers and babies are cared for together, with family and friends involved as desired. 

Our 24 private recovery suites are large enough to accommodate mother, baby and family. Rooms include a couch that folds into a bed for mom's support person, as well as flat-screen televisions with Internet access, HD television and free movies. 

You will have the opportunity to watch programs about infant care and will also receive individual instruction from the family-centered care nursing staff, as well as written discharge instructions. Our goal is to teach you the information you need so you're comfortable caring for your newborn.
