Before You Arrive

Here are a few things you should do before you arrive at Good Samaritan Medical Center.

  • Have your baby's car seat checked
    Contact Baby's First Ride (a free car seat check program) during your last month of pregnancy. They will make an appointment to check your installed car seat. Appointments are available six days a week. Call 303-908-8326 to schedule your appointment.

  • Pack your bag
    See our suggested packing list »

  • Choose a doctor for your baby
    You must have a doctor (a pediatrician or family practice physician) picked out for your baby at the time you are admitted in labor. Please bring the first and last name of your baby's doctor so that they can be notified when your baby has been born. If you need help finding a doctor for your baby, call us at 303-689-4595.

  • Complete a birth plan (optional)
    A birth plan tells the hospital staff information about what is important to you during labor, birth, and hospitalization. You may use your own version of a birth plan or print out our Birth By Design Form »

    If you have a unique situation or special needs that we should know about ahead of time, call us at 303-689-4700. Bring your birth plan with you when you come to the hospital.
