Our labor and delivery suites are beautiful, spacious, and serene. They are also equipped with everything needed for the safety and comfort of mother and newborn.

We deliver pregnant patients from 35 weeks gestation and up. However, at Intermountain Healthcare we've found that babies induced at 38 weeks are twice as likely to end up in the NICU and five times as likely when induced at 37 weeks. That is why at Alta View, labor will not be induced prior to 39 weeks gestation unless medically necessary. It's part of our commitment to provide safe and efficient care for both mother and baby. Please read our elective induction fact sheet for more information.

Coming to the Hospital

What you should bring to the hospital:
  • Nightgown (front-opening styles are easier for breast-feeding)
  • Bathrobe
  • Slippers
  • Bras (nursing style if you plan to breast-feed your baby)
  • Cosmetics and toiletries
  • Birth announcements, writing paper, and pen
  • Camera, film or memory card, and extra batteries
  • Clothes for you and your baby to wear home. For your baby, we suggest you bring a shirt, gown, receiving blanket, and a heavier blanket (depending on the weather.) For you, clothes that fit in mid-pregnancy are usually best

Do not bring any personal valuables, such as, jewelry, credit cards, or cash.
