Babies First

The birth of your baby should be one of the most exciting events in your life. With the guidance of our physicians, nurses, and other members of our childbirth team, we provide a comfortable, comforting and caring center for you and your new baby.

Our team of medical professionals is experienced in obstetrical care and dedicated to providing the highest quality care for you and your baby from the moment you are pregnant. Babies First has only one goal: to provide you with caring and compassionate service in an intimate, comfortable setting and safe environment. At California Hospital Medical Center we work as a team to help you and your family experience a healthy and happy beginning to a lifetime of memories.

Services at The Keith P. Russell Women's Birthing Center include:


Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Special care for your baby in case of complications.

Vaginal Births After Cesarean deliveries. When medically indicated by your physician, the option of vaginal birth after previous cesarean delivery is now available to you.

Breastfeeding Assistance. We provide personalized assistance to new moms who are breastfeeding their babies. In addition to our nurses providing assistance, we can provide you with breastfeeding literature and you will have access to the Newborn Channel in both English and Spanish. We also offer breastfeeding classes.
