COVID-19 and Pregnancy - An Update for our Patients
We would like to take this opportunity to update you about your maternity care during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and assure you that our dedicated team of expert nurses, physicians and midwives are committed to providing the safest and most effective care.
The Women’s Center at Timpanogos Regional Hospital is dedicated to providing comprehensive maternal-fetal care in Promo-Orem metropolitan area. Our maternity doctors and care team do everything they can to provide the personalized birthing experience you deserve before, during and after labor and delivery.
To schedule a consultation or a tour of Timpanogos Regional Hospital's Women’s Center, please call the Women's Center at (801) 714-6025.
Through our prenatal care program, we help you and your baby stay healthy during pregnancy as well as help you prepare for your little one's arrival. As part of that program, we provide access to a range of providers to suit your preferences, including board-certified obstetricians (OBs) and certified nurse midwives. (You may be interested in midwifery services if you desire a more natural labor and delivery experience. However, midwives can also accommodate other childbirth options.)
Maternity classes and tours
Our Women’s Center team wants to help you and your family prepare for your new baby. To do that, we offer a variety of family education and maternity classes, including a breastfeeding class and a sibling class—all taught by educators certified by the International Childbirth Educator's Association. We also invite you to schedule a tour of our Women’s Center so you can familiarize yourself with the surroundings.

High-risk pregnancy care
For some women, preexisting health conditions, such as high blood pressure or asthma, make their pregnancies "high risk" from the moment of conception. For others, unexpected high-risk conditions, such as preterm birth or gestational diabetes, can arise during pregnancy. That's why our maternal-fetal medicine team offers comprehensive high-risk pregnancy care.
Every appointment, test or question allows us to give you honest, clear information about your pregnancy that empowers you medically and emotionally. Our specialists are also available for early consultation if pre-labor complications are expected.
To schedule a consultation with a maternal-fetal medicine specialist, please call (866) 887-3999.

Breast milk donation
Sometimes, premature babies (also called preemies), like those in our Level III NICU, depend on donated breast milk to thrive when their mother's milk is not available. As a regional breast milk donation center, we accept breast milk donations from women who have saved breast milk or are currently breastfeeding.
Why donate breast milk?
Feeding preemies breast milk is the gold standard of care. Breast milk has many benefits, including reducing the risk of infections. One ounce of your breast milk can feed a micro preemie for an entire day—literally saving their life.
Do I qualify to donate breast milk?
Taking care of your baby is your first priority. Once you have established your milk supply and your own baby's needs, becoming a donor may be an option for you. You may be able to donate your extra breast milk if the following apply to you:
- You are in generally good health.
- You are a non-smoker.
- You are taking no medications on a regular basis.
How do I become a donor?
- Call (801) 714-6605 for a referral to the milk bank.
- Trained lactation consultants will do a short phone pre-screening.
- You will be sent a comprehensive screening form to fill out and send back.
- Next, a lactation consultant will call you to set up a blood test at Timpanogos Regional Hospital, at no cost to you.
- Once you sign the donor consent form and your doctor signs the medical release form, you are ready to donate milk.
- You will be provided with containers to store your milk.
- You then drop off your milk at our hospital.
What happens after breast milk is donated?
- The milk is received and stored in large freezers maintained at -20 C or colder.
- The milk is pooled together into large flasks and then poured into sanitized glass bottled.
- The bottles are placed in a pasteurizer, brought to 62.5 C, and pasteurized for 30 minutes.
- The bottles are cooled immediately, labeled and placed in freezers.
- A small sample of the milk is analyzed to assess fats, proteins and lactose.
- A sample from each batch is sent to the lab to be tested for any bacterial growth.
- Once approved, the milk is sent coast to coast to babies in hospitals and homes.
If you have thoughts of abandoning your newborn, give up custody anonymously at a Utah Newborn Safe Haven like ours. Utah Newborn Safe Haven is here to help.
