Pregnancy & Childbirth

We’re Here to Make Every Birth A Special Delivery

MarinHealth offers parents-to-be an incredible array of expertise and services that make planning, delivering, and caring for your baby a personalized and exceptional experience.

A Collaborative Team of Experts

Our maternity team is the result of a thoughtful collaboration between obstetricians(OB/GYNs), midwives, and other childbirth professionals on your care team.

We understand that your baby’s birth is an intensely personal experience, and we want to empower you to choose the type of delivery you prefer. MarinHealth is one of the few systems in Marin and San Francisco Counties to offer both midwives and OB/GYNs for prenatal care and delivery, and we have both on site at the Medical Center 24/7. Midwives and Physicians are licensed, highly regulated healthcare providers, but their skill sets and philosophies are a little different. No matter which you choose, you’re in excellent hands and you can count on wonderful pregnancy care, maternity services, and support after delivery.

  • Obstetricians
    Our obstetrician/gynecologists (OB/GYN) are seasoned experts who guide you every step of the way from prenatal care through delivery.
  • Certified Nurse-Midwives
    For those who prefer to work with a midwife, we offer that option as well. Certified nurse-midwives are registered nurses with a master's degree in nursing or public health who are certified through the American College of Nurse-Midwives, working in conjunction with the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.
  • UCSF Perinatologists and Neonatologists
    High-risk pregnancies are stressful enough without having to leave Marin for treatment. That’s why we have UCSF Health experts on site to help moms bring high-risk pregnancies to term and to care for newborns with special health issues. In addition, pregnant women with types 1, 2, or gestational diabetes can get special advice and supervision from our Braden Diabetes Center.
  • Hospital Care Team
    Maternity Services at MarinHealth Medical Center, including anesthesia, pediatrics, specialized nursing care, and advanced perinatology, are available around-the-clock. We always have an OR and surgical team ready for emergency cesareans. Our nursing team is comprised of dedicated Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses, specially trained in support of both natural childbirth and high-risk deliveries.
