Yolanda's pregnancy was high-risk due to her Type 1 Diabetes, but she didn't expect that her daughter would be born barely weighing 3 lbs.
The BirthCare Center at Miller Children’s & Women's Hospital Long Beach is a dedicated center just for women, providing compassionate, quality health care during pregnancy.
The BirthCare Center offers a comprehensive program of research, prevention, diagnosis, treatment, educational resources, maternity classes and individual and
family support programs all under the same roof.
Miller Children's is unique since it has a maternity center under the same roof as a full-service children's hospital.
This means an in-house maternal fetal subspecialist, neonatologist and anesthesiologist, as well as clinical laboratory services available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to patients. This ensures the highest quality care for obstetrical and neonatal patients throughout the region,
and both mom and baby get the specialized care they need.
The BirthCare Center offers leading high-risk perinatal programs which provide constant monitoring of mom and baby, while the baby grows as much as possible in the stable environment of the womb. All women who have had a high-risk pregnancy or are predisposed to one should choose a hospital where their baby’s needs can be met as well as their own.
The BirthCare Center offers an around the clock high-risk maternal transport program, to ensure that mom and baby can be brought to the BirthCare Center safely.
