Having a baby can be an overwhelming process. From pregnancy nutrition to breastfeeding, our prenatal program includes a broad range of classes to help answer your questions and give you the confidence to be the mom you want to be. Download Resources for Expecting and New Parents.
We know you've spent some time thinking through your hopes for this special day. Your birth preferences help us make your experience the best it can be. A birth preferences checklist is a simple way for you to document your wishes for those who will be involved in the delivery of your baby. And because we support low intervention birth as well as the use of medication, we welcome deliveries with OBGYNs or Certified Nurse Midwives.
Breastfeeding is one of the best things you can do for your newborn. John Muir Health offers a wide range of services to help you achieve the nutritional goals you set for your child. Download Resources for Expecting and New Parents and Breastfeeding Guide: How To Get Off To A Great Start.
We support the Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding, and our staff will guide and help you in your breastfeeding experiences from the moment your child is born.
In the rare event your baby needs specialized care during or after your labor and delivery, you can take comfort in knowing we're prepared. The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at John Muir Health is a world-class Level III NICU that provides around-the-clock care for premature and critically ill babies.
When you're in labor, the last thing you want to think about is filling out paperwork. Ensure an easy check-in by completing our online registration form in advance.
