We had excellent teachers for our prenatal classes. They really wanted us to get good information. They also seemed resigned that the hospital was forcing them to teach in a rigid way. All three of them warned us that the hospital had high rates of interventions.
We found that the minute we got to our room, this nurse Shirley was pushing us to get an epidural, even when I was only 2cm dilated! She was rude to our doula and tried to badmouth her when the doula stepped out to use the restroom. We felt like nameless, faceless patients.
Our breastfeeding teacher told us that even though the official policy was to have babies room-in, the staff would make a case for putting babies in the nursery at night. Most of the post-partum nurses are not RN's and tried to push their cultural values onto us. And we always had to wait up to 30 minutes when we asked for help. It was weird!

The staff at the prenatal center were nice but didn't seem organised. These people seemed overworked and underpaid and very stressed.

We will go to UCSF for our next birth, or maybe have a homebirth.

PROS: Lots of doctors
CONS: This place is a baby factory that is looking to make money

This place was such a good resource for my family! They have support groups, lactation consultants and a small retail shop. I first found them when I was doing my hospital tour--which you book through them. They've always have been really helpful, patient and understanding. I'm glad that they exist! It's such a great resource for new parents.

Newborn Connections does a good job at providing information to expectant parents and parents of new babies. They provide lactation support with a full team of IBCLC's, and general good information and support for the new family. They do a good job, at serving their community with referrals, classes, support groups, and products.
