Find out what makes the Family Birth Center at Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula a welcoming, joyful place to deliver your baby.
‘Best hospital to give birth’
You may have heard from your neighbors or read in Monterey Bay Parent Magazine that the Family Birth Center is one of the best places on the Monterey Peninsula to give birth. Community Hospital is among the most beautiful hospitals in the U.S., surrounded by natural scenery, but it’s our inclusive approach to care that makes us special.
In addition to the highest quality medical services, you deserve compassionate and affirming support. The Family Birth Center’s skilled, dedicated team takes the time to listen and personalize the experience of everyone in our care, celebrating the delivery of 1,100 babies each year. Expect us to:
- Respect your choices for your unique birth experience
- Put you and your baby first
- Support your emotional, mental, and physical well-being
Every aspect of our birth center was designed with you in mind, especially our spacious, private suites. Our nurse-to-patient ratio means you and your baby will receive attentive care.
You can expect a wide range of benefits because we’re a Baby-Friendly hospital. This designation by the World Health Organization (WHO) and UNICEF's Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative means we follow parent-baby bonding practices, offer the highest quality breastfeeding guidance, and more.
