Why Give Birth at UC San Diego Health?

Midwife or doctor, Birth Center room or traditional labor and delivery suite — we offer the most birth options. And both of our hosptials have neontal intensive care units (NICUs) to give you peace of mind if your baby needs specialized care. 

  • Birth Center: Our Birth Center is the only in-hospital center dedicated to unmedicated childbirth on the West Coast.
  • Volunteer doulas: We're one of the only hospitals in San Diego to offer a volunteer doula program to laboring mothers.
  • Lactation consultants: We're nationally known for actively supporting families who choose to breastfeed.
  • Nationally recognized Maternal-Fetal Care and Genetics: Board-certified specialists in our Maternal-Fetal Care and Genetics provide coordinated care from pre-conception through birth, including prenatal and genetic counseling regarding amniocentesis, chorionic villus sampling (CVS) and ultrasound results.
  • Specialized care for high-risk pregnancies: We have specialized perinatal care for complicated pregnancies, twins and multiples, and maternal conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, or lupus.
  • Level III NICU: UC San Diego Health has the only regional Level III NICU within a birthing facility in San Diego, plus a Level II Intermediate NICU at UC San Diego Medical Center in Hillcrest for babies who need short-term intensive care.
