Families who choose Loma Linda University Medical Center and Children’s Hospital for their obstetrics and prenatal care experience the highest possible level of personal attention throughout the woman's pregnancy. Our family-focused environment provides a range of medical, emotional and spiritual support to support women during this exciting, life-changing time in their lives – during pregnancy, delivery and infanthood.

Our unwavering commitment to providing the best obstetric and prenatal care has helped us be the first Children's Hospital in the U.S. to earn the prestigious title of "Baby-Friendly" facility. This title is awarded by Baby-Friendly USA, a project of the United Nation's Children's Fund (UNICEF) and the World Health Organization (WHO) that seeks to save infants' lives by improving quality of care in hospitals around the world.
