Why Give Birth at UC San Diego Health?

Midwife or doctor, home-like setting or traditional labor and delivery suite — we offer the most birth options, all backed by the peace of mind of our Level III neonatal intensive care unit. Consider these advantages:

  • Birth Center: Our Birth Centers are the only in-hospital centers 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.
