About Us

At Natividad Medical Center, we focus on giving family-centered care and providing a full range of services to childbearing women, their newborn, and their families. Fathers and significant others are included in our family-centered care as well.

The entire second floor of the inpatient area of the medical center is devoted to the quality care of women and newborns. Our Maternal Infant Unit is a 26-bed unit, with eight private, beautifully appointed labor & delivery and recovery units. Each delivery is attended by a doctor, labor nurse, and neonatal baby nurse. All infants receive routine blood and hearing screenings prior to discharge.

Our Labor and Delivery Unit is the only facility in Monterey County that offers the option of a vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC) to women who qualify.

Education and support services, including lactation support and information on women’s topics are offered.
