Labor and Delivery

Private Birthing Rooms

At all Scripps maternity centers, labor, delivery and recovery take place in one room. These state-of-the-art labor and delivery rooms are linked with a fetal monitoring system that gives nurses, physicians and midwives access to your vital signs and your baby’s heart rate from a central station.

Because each birth is unique, our team of health care professionals works with you to personalize your experience. We try to accommodate any special requests you have to make this a special experience that is both personal and safe for you and your baby.

Fully-equipped operating rooms

In the event of a C-section (cesarean birth), whether planned or not, our experienced staff will support you through the delivery using the most advanced medical technology. All Scripps facilities provide specially equipped operating rooms dedicated to cesarean deliveries.

Please note that C-sections are a form of surgery. Only your support person will be allowed to accompany you into the operating room.
