Women & Children’s Services at Natividad

Welcoming a new member of your family is a one of the most beautiful parts of life. Throughout your pregnancy, on the day your baby is born, and in the months following your baby’s arrival, Natividad is here to support and encourage you.

Natividad is proud to offer expert care with a full range of services to women, babies, and their families. We know each woman’s experience is very unique. We work with each woman and her family to make a plan for her care that meets her needs and choices. We provide education and support resources every step of the way, so women and their families can best make the decisions that are right for them.
