All of our physicians are UCSF doctors who are committed to providing you top-quality care that fits your needs and wishes. We listen to you and work to provide you the very best pregnancy care, as well as specialty gynecology services. We have the expert knowledge to serve you during low-risk or complicated pregnancy, and your other women’s health care needs.


One of our most popular options for pregnant women is receiving care from a nurse-midwife. Our highly trained UCSF nurse-midwives, treat you with care and compassion and are committed to supporting you to have normal labor. We work hard to be your partner in making decisions about pregnancy, labor and childbirth, and your overall health. If you decide to have a midwife, you will be cared for by that midwife all the way through your pregnancy.

You may enjoy getting care in our group program called CenteringPregnancy. If you feel this is right for you, you will have all your prenatal visits, breastfeeding and labor education in a group with a midwife and other pregnant women who are due around the same time. You can bring your partner or a friend with you, and many women find this style of care more enjoyable.

Call to sign up at (628) 206-3409.

Creating a world where HIV is not a barrier to sexual wellness or safe pregnancies:
HIVE provides preconception (before pregnancy) and prenatal care to women and couples living with and affected by HIV (when one partner is HIV+ and the other is HIV-). We have videos and resources to support you in having the sex life you want, and the family you want.

Since 2004, all babies born in San Francisco have been free of HIV.
