Birth Center Orientation & Expectant Parents Night

We are committed to providing you with all of the information you need for birth at the Johnson Center for Pregnancy and Newborn Services.  Each month we offer free evening presentations for all of those expecting to deliver their baby at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford. 

Birth Center - Stanford Children's Health

Hospital staff and physicians will present a comprehensive orientation to the logistics of having a baby of Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford, including information on Labor & Delivery, on pain relief options during labor, on postpartum arrangements and our skin-to-skin program. Audience questions are taken by each presenter. Each Birth Center Orientation will be held from 6 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. on the dates listed below.

Please note, the orientation and expectant parents night is not a walking tour of the Johnson Center for Pregnancy and Newborn Services. To schedule a walking tour, visit our registration page for Birth Center Tours.

This is a free event; no registration is needed.
