MCDH’s Birthing Unit

MCDH’s Birthing Unit was one of the first in-house, family-centered maternity care programs in California and was a model for other family-birthing programs throughout the country.

Although the department has seen many changes over the years, our dedication to providing families with happy and rewarding birth experiences remains the same.

An OB tour is offered monthly to members of the community who are expecting a child. Our OB Team recently won an award for training in fetal monitoring — one more indication of our focus on providing quality, state-of-the-art care to our little patients and their moms.
