Kaiser Permanente provides a full range of health care professionals, whether you want to give birth in a hospital or home. You can choose from: a family physician who offers obstetrics services, an obstetrician/gynecologist (Ob/Gyn), and a certified nurse midwife (CNM). Doctors and certified nurse-midwives deliver babies at specialized birth units in some network hospitals. Kaiser Permanente is committed to teaching the next generation of family physicians, and has an active medical resident training program. In some cases, family medicine residents may assist with care if you choose to give birth at Swedish First Hill.
