Team Lily


Team Lily is a Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital-based multidisciplinary care team providing person-centered, trauma-informed, wrap-around services to pregnant and postpartum people. We support pregnant people experiencing significant barriers to accessing clinic-based prenatal care, primarily those experiencing homelessness, substance use disorders, incarceration, intimate partner violence, and/or mental illness. We strive for a pregnancy, birth or abortion, and postpartum experience that is filled with dignity, that is grounded in autonomy, and that uplifts individual or parenting goals. We are committed to dismantling structural racism and challenging the stigma and discrimination that drive Team Lily clients’ barriers to care, health, and well-being.
