Deliver Your Baby at Hoag Irvine

Maternity Care at Hoag Hospital Irvine

Hoag Hospital Irvine’s birthing experience elevates the standard of women’s care by combining the amenities of a home birth with the peace-of-mind of a world-class hospital. 

Fudge Family Birthing Suites

These birthing suites reimagine pregnancy, delivery and recovery for modern families with private birthing suites. The new suites offer the ability to labor, deliver and recover in the same room as well as two C-section operating rooms and a nursery staffed 24/7 by an expert team, including OB/GYN hospitalists, midwives, board-certified anesthesiologists and neonatologists. Located on the first floor of the hospital, the Fudge Family Birthing Suites offer the Tsao Family Garden, an adjacent private outdoor walking space that serves as a calming influence on expectant mothers.

Antepartum and Postpartum Care

After labor, delivery and recovery, mothers and babies may be transferred to the Mother Baby and Antepartum rooms on the sixth floor. These private rooms are intended for antepartum and postpartum care of moms and their newborns. All mothers will receive spa-like amenities that include essential oils, robes and afternoon tea service.

Expert Care

Hoag Hospital Irvine has dedicated operating rooms for Cesarean deliveries and a special care nursery for newborns needing extra medical attention, both located a few steps from the maternity suites. The nursery is staffed 24/7 by an expert team including OB/GYN hospitalists, certified midwives, board-certified anesthesiologists and neonatologists.

Midwives & Doulas

Hoag supports women’s desired birth journey, welcoming certified doulas and nurse midwives at both campuses. At Hoag Hospital Irvine, Hoag works with Orange Coast Women’s Medical Group to offer midwifery services for women who are looking for minimally invasive prenatal care and a unique personal birthing experience. Our certified nurse-midwives (CNMs) are experts in women’s health, providing support during pregnancy, childbirth and beyond. Their comprehensive care is dedicated to supporting the normal processes of childbirth to ensure the best possible birthing outcomes for mother and baby.
