Our Prenatal Services

Traditional Obstetrics Care

We offer a full range of general obstetrics care. Choose one of our OB/GYNs, or see a family medicine physician who can care for your entire family.

Nurse-Midwifery Service

Our patients have the option of giving birth in either La Jolla or Hillcrest. We offer a home-like atmosphere at our Birth Center in La Jolla as well as traditional Labor & Delivery rooms at both locations.

Prenatal Screening and Genetic Counseling

Our maternal-fetal care and genetics specialists perform ultrasound screenings using the latest imaging technology. We also provide prenatal and genetic counseling, amniocentesis, chorionic villus sampling (CVS), and fetal growth assessments (when appropriate).

Specialized Care for High-Risk Pregnancies and Multiples

If your pregnancy needs specialized care, our team is ready to assist. We are experts in a wide range of complex maternal-fetal conditions, and will work with you to achieve a healthy pregnancy. 

Maternal Weight and Wellness Program

Women with a BMI of 35 or higher, or those who have had bariatric surgery, have special needs during pregnancy. Working with a team who understands their challenges — and can provide customized care and support — results in healthier outcomes for both mothers and babies.
