Hoag Hospital aims to “reimagine the experience of pregnancy, delivery and recovery for modern families.” The Fudge Family Birthing Suites are unique and designed to accommodate maternity care, with moms able to experience labor, delivery, and first moments with the baby all in the same room. The space is on the first floor, and includes a serene outdoor walking garden to encourage a sense of peacefulness.
