Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla9888 Genesee AveLa Jolla, CA 92037 One of the best-kept secrets - that we are always trying to tell the WORLD - is that there are wonderful Midwives on the labor and delivery floor around the clock at Scripps La Jolla. When a mother comes on to the floor, she can ask for the support of a midwife to attend her birth. This is a great resource when pregnancy and labor are low risk and normal. Not only are the nurses wonderful at Scripps, but the attending OB's, anesthesiologists and Rady's Children's NICU team are too! Another plus? The nurses are all trained in Spinning Babies techniques! We love that! *A Baby-Friendly Hospital
