Pregnancy Care – Our obstetric team of physicians and nurse-midwives provide safe, individualized, family-centered care throughout pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period. We’re proud that our team maintains one of the lowest cesarean section rates in Northern California.

Caring for Your Newborn: Newborn Nursery

Watch a virtual tour of our labor and delivery center at Kaiser Permanente Hospital in Redwood City.

This is our Well-Baby Nursery. The Nurses will take your newborn here to receive the Newborn Hearing Screening to ensure that your baby has normal hearing. The nurses will also take your baby here for the state-required California Newborn Screening blood test to detect metabolic disorders. If you choose to have your son circumcised, he will also go to the Well-Baby Nursery for the procedure.

Our Intermediate Care Nursery is for babies needing extra attention and is located next to the Well-Baby Nursery. We offer Neonatal Intensive Care Service units at other nearby medical centers to care for babies born earlier than 34 weeks.
