Sharp Mary Birch Hospital for Women & Newborns has partnered with the San Diego Padres to launch a new nursing lounge at Petco Park in downtown San Diego. The first of its kind on the West Coast, the lounge provides a soothing, shaded spot just for moms and babies.
Located in a suite on the park's terrace level, the lounge features a comfortable sofa and rocking chairs; a private restroom; amenities including a sink and changing table; plugs for breast pumps; and even a refrigerator. A glass wall rolls up and additional outdoor seats provide a prime view of the third baseline and game below. A female concierge is on-hand during each game to welcome moms into the lounge and provide assistance as needed.
