Pregnant? Get Your Flu Shot

Influenza, or "the flu," is highly contagious and can lead to serious medical conditions and hospitalization. The best way to protect yourself and your family is to get an annual flu vaccine. Please talk to your provider about getting yours.

Making Deliveries Extra Special

Our goal at Enloe’s Nettleton Mother & Baby Care Center is to help you have the birth experience you desire. Our caregivers provide the best care possible in a warm, welcoming environment. 

A Note About Photos & Filming

Pursuant to California law, you cannot film, record, disclose or distribute images of, or conversations with, Enloe caregivers without their consent.

What to Expect

When an expectant mom arrives here, her first stop could be a "Maybe Baby" room. There our caregivers assess her labor progress before moving her into a private birthing suite.

The Nettleton Mother & Baby Care Center's Birthing Unit has eight private suites with private bathrooms. Each suite was designed to create a soothing environment helping labor progress naturally.

Mothers also have access to a birthing ball, whirlpool tub or shower, or wireless fetal monitoring, allowing them to move throughout the unit. Soft lighting in the rooms and aromatherapy can also help mothers relax during labor. Each suite also has Wi-Fi access and a TV.

Family members are welcome in birthing suites if requested by the expectant mom or they may wait in our family lounge. Guests can also enjoy a meal or cup of coffee in Enloe's Allspice Café, located on the medical center's bottom level.

The Birth Experience

Safety and healthy outcomes are our top priorities. We take pride in allowing moms to decide who they want in their birthing suite to provide love and support during the birthing experience. Moms can watch their babies being born, reflected in a mirror, and dads or birth partners are invited to cut the umbilical cord.

After the birth, we provide guidance to initiate infant feeding and mother-baby bonding with skin-to-skin contact. This is beneficial for both mom and baby and is an area of pride for us as the first Baby-Friendly hospital in Butte County. Learn more.

When babies are born, new parents get to “push the button” that plays the Brahms’ Lullaby overhead throughout the hospital. This tradition celebrates new life, inspiring hope and joy throughout the medical center.

After Giving Birth

After recovering from the birthing experience, moms and their babies move to a private Couplet Care room. Each has a private bathroom with shower and furniture to accommodate an overnight guest.

Babies room with their mothers, and our caregivers give information on self-care, newborn care and infant feeding in-person, on DVD, and through a take-home booklet. Mothers also enjoy fresh, healthy meals during their stay and, to celebrate baby's arrival, we offer a special meal for mom and her partner.

We also offer the following for added comfort and care:

  • A lactation room for private consultations
  • A Special Care Nursery with six rooms, each with bassinet and sleep chairs for mothers or fathers to stay overnight with their baby
  • A Special Care Nursery Family Room, for parents whose physicians order an overnight stay prior to leaving the hospital to gain confidence in providing full care for their new baby after their stay in our Special Care Nursery

We're Baby Friendly!

As the first Baby-Friendly Hospital in the area and one of only 417 U.S. hospitals to hold this designation, we provide families with information and guidance needed to initiate infant feeding and mother-baby bonding.

Enloe's Mother & Baby staff and trained lactation nurses offer evidence-based care, information, and skills to support optimal infant feeding outcomes and mother-baby bonding.
