Sharp Mary Birch Hospital for Women & Newborns
Maternal Infant Services Unit
Each year, we welcome more than 9,400 babies into the world. And as the only hospital in San Diego dedicated to women and newborns, we have a unique understanding of pregnancy, delivery and aftercare. In our Maternal Infant Services Unit, we cater to women after delivery. It’s our goal to heal, educate and empower — providing the tools you need to care for your newborn.
The quality care you expect from Sharp Mary Birch.
From specialists to registered nurses and lactation consultants, our caregivers are a loyal team — all focused on you and your baby. In fact, as you recover, your nurse will carry a cellphone so you can reach her directly at any time. Our affiliated physicians are known nationally for their skill and expertise, and our unit includes a special infant observation area for babies needing extra care and attention.
Family-centered care with all the comforts of home.
Our “rooming in” philosophy means your new baby will be with you from the time of delivery until you go home. All hospital services occur in your room allowing you and your new family time to bond. This includes breastfeeding support, quiet time, a daily family home care class and an in-room hearing screening for your baby. Sleeper sofas allow an overnight guest to spend the night — and you’ll all benefit from our exceptional food and nutritional services.
Giving your baby the best possible start in life.
Bringing your baby home from the hospital is one of the most exciting endeavors in parenthood. So we want to make sure you’re well prepared and ready for this exciting new chapter. We’ll help process your baby’s birth certificate, pack your complimentary diaper bag and send you home with a list of community resources. And while nothing can prepare you for parenthood like diving in headfirst, we can help provide you with tips on breastfeeding, sleep patterns and other new baby joys.
