Having a doctor who cares for you as an individual and whom you can trust is very important, especially during this special time. We encourage you to choose personal physicians who best meet your needs. Your delivery and other hospital services will be provided at Kaiser Foundation Hospitals or at other hospitals contracting with Kaiser Permanente.
