The UCLA Nurse Midwives continue to provide prenatal care in person and via telehealth visits during this COVID-19 pandemic. The health of you and your baby is our top priority, and we are here to care for you during your birth and postpartum recovery. Here are several important resources for you:
UCLA nurse-midwives offer prenatal care, delivery and postpartum care, as well as breast-feeding consultation. Nurse-midwives focus on meeting patients' needs for physical care, emotional and social support, and health education throughout pregnancy, delivery, and the postpartum period. Women can expect the same level of safety with nurse-midwives as they do with physicians.
The UCLA Nurse Midwives have moved!
Our new address is: 2001 Santa Monica Blvd, Suite 380, Santa Monica, CA 90404. The UCLA Nurse Midwives are now located at UCLA Santa Monica Medical Center. We are excited to expand our program, including clinic and prenatal services, at The BirthPlace Santa Monica where we have more rooms and space to care for you during labor and birth.
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 planned for the birthing suites at UCLA Santa Monica Medical Center. Analgesia and anesthesia options are available to all clients if desired. Many insurance plans cover certified nurse-midwifery care.
