Labor and Delivery

When you’re pregnant, you want to know that you’re getting the best possible care for you and your baby. Each year, more than 90,000 pregnant women receive care at our facilities, and we bring their babies into the world at our own Kaiser Permanente premier hospital partners.

We believe good care comes from a partnership between you and your doctor. Our doctors, nurses, and other health professionals work with you to keep you and your baby healthy, and to give you the information you need to make the best decisions for your growing family.

At Kaiser Permanente you’ll find:
