private birthing suite at UC Davis Medical Center

(Including a farm-to-fork-inspired celebratory meal for two)

When it’s time to give birth, most of us prefer a comfortable, home-like setting to a sterile hospital room.

The birth suites at UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento are large, specially appointed private rooms that create a family atmosphere for your labor and delivery. They help to blend amenities for your comfort and safety with the benefits of our unique academic expertise.

Mom and baby stay together

We practice couplet care, which means that babies and mommies stay together after birth to help support bonding.

We perform our routine recovery care tasks at mom’s bedside – and whenever possible, while baby is resting on mom.
