Philosophy of Care
We practice mother-baby care, also called “rooming in,” and “couplet care", meaning the same nurse attends to both mother and newborn to promote bonding, healing and personalized care. Learn more about our philosophy of care >
We offer gentle C-section, which uses a clear drape so that the parents can see the baby being born. After delivery, if the mother and baby are stable, they can remain together in the operating room and continue skin-to-skin bonding in the recovery room.
If you have a high-risk pregnancy, you'll be referred to Atlantic Maternal-Fetal Medicine for evaluation and treatment prior to delivery. During labor, we’ll monitor the baby’s status using the most sophisticated technology available. Learn more about maternal fetal medicine >
