The moment you meet your baby happens only once. Ensure it happens in a place dedicated to extraordinary care for babies and new mothers. Sutter Maternity & Surgery Center of Santa Cruz is a designated Baby-Friendly Hospital, meaning our healthcare professionals are part of a global program sponsored by the World Health Organization and the United Nations Children’s Fund to protect, promote and support breastfeeding. The Baby-Friendly designation is the gold standard of maternity care and demonstrates our commitment to the healthiest start for you and your baby.
Our family-centered birth center offers extensive amenities to help you feel at home. Behind our 11 beautiful birthing suites is a high-tech hospital with advanced equipment and technology, and a highly-trained team of birthing specialists. Should you require a cesarean section, our team is ready at all times to meet this and other special needs within the birthing suite. We provide expert guidance and personalized care for you and your family throughout your labor and delivery.
Our commitment to providing an extraordinary birth experience doesn’t end when you leave the hospital. We offer a wide range of classes and support groups to help in your family’s transition to having a newborn. All of our nurses have extensive training in breastfeeding support, and our lactation consultants are available during your stay or after your discharge to address any special breastfeeding needs or concerns.
