The USC Verdugo Hills Hospital offers a variety of health services specifically designed for women.
With a high focus on patient safety and quality care, USC-VHH’s Beginnings Family Birth Center gives new mothers and babies the best possible delivery environment. Our board-certified obstetricians and experienced labor and delivery and post-partum nurses bring many years of clinical excellence to our community hospital. We respect each mother’s birth preference and welcome all birth plans. Professional photography is also provided by Bella Baby Photography.
