Taking care of you and your family.
As the South Bay's largest provider of health care services for women and infants, we are committed to helping you through each stage of life — be it welcoming a new baby into your family or undergoing a gynecologic procedure.
Whether it's before, during or after birth, we're here to help meet your needs. As a new mother you have access to private labor and delivery suites, a dedicated room for Caesarean section deliveries, cord blood banking, a neonatal intensive care unit, breastfeeding classes, a breast-milk donor program and support groups in English and Spanish and a full range of gynecologic procedures.
With more than 3,000 babies delivered each year, our staff is ready to care for you and your family.
Time to bond with your loved ones.
We know how important family is at this time, and we encourage a safe environment for mothers and babies. If you plan to visit, please sign in at the security desk and follow these guidelines:
- Children who are under 12 years of age must be brothers and/or sisters of the newborn. All other visitors must be 12 years or older.
- Parents of visiting children must complete a health assessment form for each child
- Your support person (age 18 and over) may stay overnight with you and visit 24 hours a day, seven days a week
- Your newborn's siblings may visit during visiting hours, which are from 11 am to 8 pm
We want you and your visitors to be comfortable during your stay, which is why we offer fresh coffee, tea and cookies each day from 3 to 7 pm.

Take a tour of our hospital.
Since we cannot offer hospital tours at this time, we have created a virtual tour of what to expect when you arrive at the hospital to have your baby. We hope the step-by-step slideshow below helps ease anxieties and answers questions you may have about your delivery at Sharp Chula Vista. The tour is also available in Spanish.
Women's and Infants' Services
As the South Bay's largest provider of health care services for women and infants, Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center is committed to helping you through each stage of life — be it welcoming a new baby into your family or undergoing a gynecologic procedure.
If you need to come between the hours of 9 pm and 6 am, please enter through the Emergency Department, located to the south of the Ocean View Tower entrance.
Upon arrival, you will be screened and given a mask. Our hospital staff will escort you to our dedicated elevators that will direct you to the Women’s and Infants’ Services reception desk on the third floor.
In triage, we assess the conditions of you and your baby to see if you need to be admitted. Your stay in triage can last 30 minutes to a few hours.
After triage, you will labor, deliver your baby, and recover in one of our spacious, comfortable suites that were made for your comfort in mind. Here, you will be joined by your designated support person.
For the safety of you and your baby, you will be escorted into one of our postpartum rooms. You will stay a minimum of 24 hours after delivery, 2 to 3 days for cesarean birth.
Additional postpartum rooms are available on 3 East.
We'll help find the doctor who's right for you.
