Birth Center


Preparing for pregnancy, being pregnant and having a baby are all exciting times in your life—and we’re here to help. The labor and delivery staff at Dignity Health Sequoia Hospital provides personal, expert care for mothers and babies.

Services We Offer

  • 24-hour anesthesia and OB doctor coverage 

  • An onsite Level II neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) within our Birth Center. If your baby is premature or requires intensive care, your newborn will be cared for on site in the NICU by doctors and nurses from Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford who specialize in neonatology care.  

  • Breastfeeding support during the hospital stay and through crucial early weeks in the life of a new baby. Consultants are registered nurses who are International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) certified. 

  • Vaccinations against whooping cough. We advise all baby caregivers, including grandparents, aunts, uncles, partners and nannies, be vaccinated against whooping cough. 

  • Obaby Designs offers newborn hospital photo sessions right in your room.
