At Gila Regional, it is our belief that childbirth is one of the most important life events, and we recognize the role of the family during this joyful time.
GRMCs Maternal/Child Department provides outpatient and inpatient services to women during pregnancy, the labor and delivery process, and the immediate post partum period. Newborn care is provided in the normal newborn nursery and the mother's room. Rooming in of the newborn is encouraged to promote bonding and successful initiation of breastfeeding. Our Level 2 nursery provides care to babies who require a higher level of care such as oxygen or antibiotic therapy.
The maternal child team consists of RNs and Perinatal Techs who have been specially trained to work in these areas. Our caregivers have an average of ten years of experience in low and high risk pregnancies and newborns.
The main department phone number is 575/538-4010. Our Lactation Consultant can be contacted at
