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 

A 4 week series Childbirth Preparation class for first time parents includes information on breathing, relaxation, stages of labor and what to expect, labor support, birth options and breastfeeding basics. Wear comfortable loose clothing, bring water, and a snack. The class is held on Mondays from 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm in the Medical Records Conference Room at CHRISTUS St. Vincent Regional Medical Center, 455 St. Michaels Dr. Classes are taught by a certified Childbirth Educator.
