We are committed to providing you with all of the information you need for birth at the Johnson Center for Pregnancy and Newborn Services. As we move towards offering our educational programs virtually during this time, we want to offer a free eLearning Birth Center Orientation presentation for anyone wishing to learn more about delivering their baby at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford.

Hospital staff and physicians will present an orientation to the logistics of having a baby at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford, including information on Labor & Delivery, current Visitor policy, pain relief options during labor, postpartum arrangements and our skin-to-skin program. Audience questions will be taken. Our eLearning Birth Center Orientation will be held from 5 – 6:30 p.m. on Zoom.
