Having a baby is an exciting time in a woman’s life.
The physicians and staff at Banner Gateway Medical Center work together to meet the needs of mothers-to-be and their babies throughout the pregnancy, labor, delivery and recovery experience.
Banner Gateway also offers a full complement of education programs including childbirth education, parenting classes, sibling classes and lactation counseling for breastfeeding moms.
All expectant mothers will receive our Banner Health Parents-To-Be Book from their physician’s office. This helpful book covers such important topics as prenatal advice, hospital information and home care education.
Our staff provides personalized care using the latest technology in a family-centered environment, with 11 labor and delivery suites.
The OB unit also offers a Japanese Soaking Tub to help women relax and ease the stress of labor. There's also a private healing garden for OB patients and their families. A safe and secure environment, the garden is only accessible from the unit. It is a place for relaxation and reflection, with walking paths, playgrounds for siblings, benches, tables and water features.
Following a couplet care model, mothers and babies at Banner Gateway are cared for together whenever possible, with family and friends involved as the patient desires. Our private post-partum recovery suites are large enough to accommodate mother, baby and family. Rooms include private bathrooms, couches that convert to beds, and such amenities as flat screen televisions, Internet access, mini refrigerators and room service.
