  • Privacy for resting, sleeping and bonding with your baby
  • Specially designed beds for delivery

Comfort Measures for Your Labor

Giving birth is a very unique and personal experience. Many factors go into putting together your birth plan. Skagit Valley Hospital offers many comfort options that are available throughout your labor journey. We want to empower you to choose the options that are right for you. We work with each patient to tailor the labor experience to your specific needs. Below is a list of options that are available at the Family Birth Center:

    Laboring mom and support person
  • Jacuzzi tub in each room
  • Aromatherapy with essential oils
  • Nitrous oxide inhalation therapy
  • Telemetry for monitoring your baby while walking
  • Rocking chairs
  • Peanut balls and Birth balls
  • Epidural anesthesia

You may choose any of these options or none of the above. Please discuss your plan with your provider and labor nurse, so we can do our best to enhance your labor experience.

Visitor Policy

As we move through the ever-changing COVID-19 pandemic, we are taking all appropriate steps to ensure the safety of our patients, families, staff and providers including screening, masking and sanitizing.

We understand the important role that loved ones play in patients’ lives. To continue to protect our patients and employees during the outbreak of COVID-19, we have adjusted the number of visitors who may be with patients at Skagit Valley Hospital.

Obstetric patients may have two (2) designated, healthy adult visitors (partner and birth support) when in labor; two hours after delivery only one support person will be able to remain at the bedside and the second person will be required to leave.

Cuisine on Call

Cuisine on Call will allow you to order from the menu in your room when you desire. Your options may be limited to the type of diet your physician has ordered, but you have many choices. Delivery of your food takes between 30—60 minutes after ordering. If you do not receive your tray, please be sure and let your nurse know.
