Maternity Care

It’s time to welcome your new bundle of joy. Bakersfield Memorial has been providing care for moms and new babies for decades, but we still treat every birth like it’s a unique experience. Because each is one of our Miracles on 34th Street.

Babies Are Our Business

At Bakersfield Memorial, we work closely with you to make giving birth here safe and comfortable. We feature large, modern birthing suites where state-of-the-art equipment is balanced with home-like features, including a comfortable place for dad or other family members to rest. Caring for a newborn can be overwhelming, so we place an emphasis on parenting classes and education. Whether you’re a first time mom or a mother of many, our nurses work individually with you teaching baby care, breastfeeding and providing on-going support to ensure success.

When Your Baby Needs Extra Care

If your baby is born prematurely or with a serious illness, we have a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) just steps away. There, specially trained NICU doctors and nurses use state-of-the-art equipment to care for every need of the tiniest of newborns. Take a tour of our facility on 34th Street to see for yourself what a difference Bakersfield Memorial can make when you’re giving birth. Find out for yourself why our baby program is known as Miracles on 34th Street.
