Women & Infants Pavilion

Enjoy Our Comfortable Women & Infants Pavilion

Antelope Valley Medical Center welcomes nearly 5,000 babies every year born in our Labor and Delivery Unit, a spacious and modern facility located in the Women & Infants Pavilion (WIP) on our hospital campus. It offers an inviting environment where families can experience birth with the right blend of comfort and technology to support them. The pavilion's home-like atmosphere includes 12 labor suites, 12 antepartum rooms, along with 12 triage bays.

Baby’s siblings are encouraged to visit the new baby, however, anyone who is sick or has symptoms of respiratory infection should not visit the Women & Infants Pavilion to protect babies from infection. Please review the hospital's visitor policy prior to your visit.

Couplet Care/Family-Centered Care

Unlike the traditional approach, in which new babies are cared for in a separate nursery by dedicated nursery staff, couplet care places healthy newborns in the same room with their mothers until discharge. The couplet care rooms in our Women & Infants Pavilion include extra sleeping accommodations for the person the mother chooses to support her while in the hospital.

Quality, compassionate care is our number one priority. We were named a Baby-Friendly Hospital in 2015, which supports breastfeeding and mother-baby bonding.

Comprehensive Perinatal Services Program (CPSP)

CPSP is a state-wide program that provides enhanced reimbursement for a wide range of services to Medi-Cal eligible pregnant and postpartum women. The CPSP model was founded on the belief that pregnancy and birth outcomes improve when routine obstetric care (prenatal, delivery, and postpartum care) is integrated with specific nutrition, health education, and psychosocial services.

Services included in the CPSP program include assessments, reassessments, treatment, interventions in:

  • Obstetrics and individual case coordination
  • Nutrition
  • Health education
  • Psychosocial services
  • Perinatal and parenting education and Vitamin/mineral supplements
  • Referrals to WIC, genetic screening, dental care, family planning and pediatric care
  • And more
