Maternity Care as Unique as You

With that kind of experience and the highest level of expert care, it’s no wonder El Camino Hospital has been named “best place to have a baby” by Bay Area Parent magazine for many years.

At El Camino Hospital, we’ll work with you to understand your birth goals and preferences, and then do everything possible to ensure that you have a safe and comfortable birth experience.  Our unique services include certified nurse-midwives (CNMs) that can provide everything from preconception checkups to prenatal care, a personalized birth plan for your delivery and postpartum care.  Our complete spectrum of maternal care includes everything from our board-certified OB/GYN team to anesthesiologists and neonatologists, so you and your baby will be in good hands from start to finish.  And, although most deliveries go smoothly, it’s nice to know that El Camino Hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICUs) provide the latest treatments and advanced medical technology should your baby require specialized or urgent care.

Some mothers may need special care, such as teens or first-time pregnancies after age 35, those that smoke or drink, or those with diabetes, high blood pressure or other existing or developing conditions. If your doctor determines that your pregnancy is high-risk, you’ll likely have more frequent visits, and may have additional testing including ultrasounds, genetic, or blood tests. Our team of maternal-fetal medicine specialists focus on high-risk pregnancies and have access to specialty diagnostic technology and services available through the El Camino Hospital/Stanford Children’s Health Perinatal Diagnostic Center.  Learn more.

The team at El Camino Hospital is passionate about doing all we can to ensure the best prenatal care and healthy, safe deliveries.  That’s why we are proud supporters of the March for Babies.  These events raise funds to help families win the fight against premature birth.
