Newton Medical Center: The Patient Experience
Every mother wants to know she has the best medical care possible when bringing a new baby into the world. The expert physicians, nurses and health care professionals who staff the maternity centers at Newton Medical Center are available 24/7 to help you.
Obstetrician or Certified Nurse Midwife
Weeks before your due date, you should talk to your obstetrician about whether you would like to use pain relief techniques or medications during childbirth.
Your obstetrician or midwife will monitor you and your baby throughout labor and delivery, and for six weeks after delivery. We also have a board-certified obstetrician on site round the clock to help you in the hospital.
When you are ready to deliver your baby in the hospital, the anesthesiologist administers and monitors pain relief you may need during childbirth. Epidural anesthesia is commonly used to block the pain from contractions.
An anesthesiologist is available on site 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Labor and Delivery Nurse
Your labor and delivery nurse will support and encourage you throughout the birthing process. Our nurses are highly trained. They also hold certification in neonatal resuscitation and basic life support, and advanced life support to provide emergency care for both you and your baby.
Mother Baby Nurse
Newton Medical Center has a family-centered approach to childbirth. You will be assigned a mother baby nurse who will care for both you and your baby and communicate with the rest of the team for specific needs.
Your baby will be evaluated at birth and seen usually once a day by a pediatrician while you are in the hospital. The pediatrician will stop by your room and explain your baby's progress. Be sure to ask any questions you may have at this time.
Social Worker or Care Manager
The social worker can assist you and your family with pregnancy-related problems, financial resources, WIC referrals and New Jersey FamilyCare, plus home care services, equipment and insurance coverage for special needs.
Pregnancy is a time in your life when you become more aware of nutrition and the important role it plays in helping your baby grow. Being pregnant often motivates women to improve their diet and lifestyle so that they can be as healthy as possible. Our dietitian is available to answer questions, offer suggestions and help you manage pregnancy-related dietary issues.
