Our Approach

More babies are born at CHRISTUS St. Vincent than anywhere else in Northern New Mexico. Each year, we welcome more than 1,500 babies into the world and care for their mothers, while treating an additional 3,000 patients who visit for prenatal examinations or other obstetrical conditions.

Expectant mothers in labor must check in at registration. Between 7:00 am - 7:00 pm, patient register at the main registration located on the central level of the hospital. Between 7:00 p.m. - 7:00 a.m., patients register at the Emergency Department check-in. After registering, patients are assessed and placed in a birthing suite depending on the mother-to-be's circumstances.

Childbirth Preparation Classes 

Expectant mothers and partners can take advantage of the hospital's evening prenatal classes that cover all aspects of the birthing process, from labor to birth and parenting. A series of six informative classes are held on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. The series includes breathing and relaxation techniques, what to expect in labor, labor support, birth options, newborn care, breastfeeding, post-partum care, and a hospital tour. Participants need to bring three pillows and a mat to each class.
