NICU and High Risk Pregnancy

Tiny newborn baby's feet cupped in mother's hands
CHA Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center’s Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is directed by renowned neonatologists from Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Medical Group and staffed by specially trained experts.

We offer a six-bed ante-partum section designed to care for high-risk pregnancies. The ante-partum section is a quiet, restful area that allows the moms-to-be to rest and complete their pregnancy under the watchful eye of labor and delivery nurses.

Babies who need to go to the NICU are usually admitted within the first 24 hours after birth and remain there as long as they need to grow and progress day after day. And just like any baby, NICU babies benefit most when fed breast milk. You will have the opportunity to pump your breast milk to provide your baby the best nutrition possible. Our nurses will assist you with breast pumps and storage while caring for the special needs of your baby.
