Nurse-MidwivesBringing a tradition of careful and compassionate care to a hospital on the leading edge of medical science, certified nurse-midwives have joined the healthcare team at UCLA Medical Center in Westwood.
UCLA nurse-midwives offer prenatal care, delivery and postpartum care, as well as breast-feeding consultation. They focus on meeting their patients' needs for physical care, emotional and social support, and health education throughout pregnancy, delivery, and the postpartum period. We believe in minimal intervention, judicious use of technology and shared-decision making.
Women can expect the same level of safety with nurse-midwives as they do with physicians. The UCLA nurse-midwives hold graduate degrees in nursing and have been certified through examination by the American College of Nurse-Midwives. They work in consultation with physicians from UCLA's Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
All births are attended in the birthing suites at UCLA Medical Center in Westwood. Analgesia and anesthesia options are available to all clients if desired.
