Specialized Obstetric Care

We understand that some deliveries require special care. Here, you’re in good hands. We accommodate a range of physician-approved birth plans and create a trusted, nurturing environment for you and your baby. The McAlister Women’s Health Center is equipped with advanced diagnostic testing and monitoring.

High-risk Pregnancies

To make sure everything is going as smoothly as possible, our on-staff perinatologist offers the following services:

  • Advanced ultrasound monitoring of maternal and fetal health
  • Genetic counseling
  • Diabetes education
  • State-of-the-art diagnostic tests


  • Some deliveries require extra care. If you choose to have a vaginal birth after Cesarean, we’ll support you.

Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)

We always do our best to safely bring your baby into the world, but sometimes newborns need a little extra attention. The experts at Children's Hospital of Los Angeles collaborate closely with our medical staff to provide 24/7 coverage from neonatologists (newborn specialists) in our Irene Dunne Guild Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Thanks to this partnership, we’re able to enhance the outstanding level of care given to our most fragile infants. Learn more ›
