Our experts are here to take care of all your gynecological needs, from annual exams to complex surgical procedures.
Your Baby, Your Way
Every woman is unique, as is every birth experience. Nature is unpredictable and it isn’t always medically possible to have the wonderful labor and delivery you imagined. However, in most cases, we are able to accommodate our patients’ preferences. We urge every pregnant woman in our care to fill out Marin General Hospital’s Birth Preferences Plan in advance. Our goal is to provide you with the birth experience you are hoping for. This means:
- Your choice of providers: Whether you prefer to be delivered by an obstetrician or a certified nurse midwife, our practice offers both – and they are available to deliver at Marin General Hospital, 24/7.
- Your choice of support persons: We welcome doulas, spouses, partners, family members, or other support persons you would like with you during your baby’s birth.
- Your choice to have a medicated or non-medicated birth: Marin General Hospital offers a range of non-medical labor support techniques, such as hydrotherapy, guided relaxation, or therapeutic touch. Pharmaceutical methods of pain management, including epidurals, are also available.
- Your choice of vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC): Our success rate for vaginal births after cesarean is an impressive 70%. If you are having a VBAC, you still have the option of a midwife or obstetrician to care for you during your labor. Your clinician will be supported by Marin General Hospital’s highly experienced Family Birth Center staff.
