Obstetrics Services at Parnassus

Obstetrics Services at Parnassus provides care for both routine and high-risk pregnancies. One of the benefits of obstetrical care at UCSF is that should the need arise, high-risk care can be provided seamlessly. This is because high-risk specialists work side-by-side with other providers, as one team. In addition, patients also benefit from access to all the resources of the UCSF Medical Center.

Our Birth Center is both state of the art and family oriented. The private birthing suites have bathrooms with showers, whirlpool tubs and amenities such as refrigerators. Patients typically labor, deliver and recover there. After your recovery, you and your baby move to a private postpartum room, with a deep-soaking tub and chairs that convert into sleepers for family members or guests. Watch a tour of the Birth Center online.

Should your newborn need special medical care, we have one of the nation's finest intensive care nurseries. The nursery is certified by the state of California as a Regional Intensive Care Nursery, meaning it provides all levels of newborn care.
