We offer OB/GYN physicians and Certified Nurse Midwives (CNM) on the Labor and Delivery floor of Marin General Hospital 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
When you come to the hospital in labor the RN will ask you if you prefer to be seen by a physician or a CNM. As of now, your care with PRIMA has been delivered primarily by your physician, and if you want to have your delivery attended by a PRIMA physician, we will honor that request. Or you can choose to have your delivery attended by a midwife. The choice is entirely up to you. If there are some medical considerations that require you to be cared for by a physician, then you would not be able to be seen by the midwife.
We have increased our professional staff at PRIMA to include out-patient and in-patient midwifery services. Please let us know if you have any questions about choosing a physician or a midwife. We wish you the very best birth experience—suited just for you.
