Congratulations on the upcoming birth of your baby! This is an exciting time for many families and we are honored to care for you during your pregnancy and childbirth. Each year, Poudre Valley Hospital and Medical Center of the Rockies welcome over 3,000 babies into the world.
Our goal is to help families have the most personal and comfortable experience possible at this exciting time. Our nursing staff will provide you and your baby with expertise, compassion and comfort based on decades of experience.
PVH and MCR are two of only three hospitals in Colorado to be designated as Baby-Friendly hospitals. They each follow the Tens Steps to Successful Breastfeeding as set forth by the Baby-Friendly Initiative.
Patient- and family-centered care
Both PVH and MCR follow a patient- and family-centered care philosophy. This means you will have many support options at PVH or MCR for your birthing and post-partum experience. For all births, our goal is to keep mom and baby together as much as possible in those first precious days, so you can learn to take care of your baby with the help of a compassionate care team.
A private suite
Your labor, delivery, and recovery will all take place in a comfortable, home-like private suite. Each suite features a TV, CD player, complimentary movies and internet access, sleeper bench/couch, private bathroom with shower, access to a Jacuzzi tub and a refrigerator. A kitchen with a microwave and refrigerator is available for your support person. Laboring mothers should check with a nurse before eating or drinking anything.
We have state-of-the-art equipment needed for your baby's birth and we strive to make your birth personal and as comfortable as possible.

We've written a comprehensive book, Becoming a Family, to help you understand:
- what to bring to the hospital for your labor.

- what to expect during your hospital stay.
