Best Start Birth Center
3343 4th Avenue
San Diego CA 92103

Best Start is the longest established state-licensed, nationally accredited, free-standing birth center in Southern California. That means we are not part of a hospital or HMO. We are a private practice operated by midwives. We have physicians associated with the practice whom we consult with and refer clients to as needed, but they are not here for deliveries – it is the midwives who do the deliveries. Best Start is also the only state-licensed, nationally accredited facility in San Diego offering Water-birth.

Our mission at Best Start Birth Center is to improve the health and well being of mothers, babies, and their families. The birth center is organized to give women high quality choices, satisfying experiences, and healthy outcomes.
At Best Start Birth Center, we specialize in:

  • Waterbirth
  • Natural Birth
  • Midwifery Services
  • Family Centered Birth
  • Natural Family Planning
