Our physicians, nurses and family-centered care team provide the expertise and warm environment needed for the entire childbirth experience. Our birth center offers private postpartum maternity suites, which include a private bathroom, television, and sleeper chair.
Our services include:
27/4 access to qualified, supportive nursing staff and providers
Inpatient and outpatient newborn hearing assessments
Universal screening for all infants for jaundice (condition caused by a buildup of bilirubin, a yellow chemical produced by the breakdown of red blood cells)
Certified lactation specialists and onsite support
Breastfeeding support groups
Advanced technology and tools for infant security
In addition to certified lactation specialists, staff in our Birth Center are trained to assist in breastfeeding, the use of breast pumps, hand expression and skin-to-skin bonding. This dedication has resulted in some of the highest breastfeeding rates in the Bay Area. We support the practice of rooming-in to allow mothers and babies to remain together 24 hours a day.
We take the safety and security of your newborn very seriously. Our department is a secure unit with advanced tools that include security cameras, electronic ankle bands for infants and matching wristbands for mothers.
