Maternity

Great care is no small thing. At Atlantic Health System's hospitals, you’ll deliver your baby in a supportive, family-oriented environment, staffed by board-certified obstetricians, anesthesiology specialists, neonatology specialists, maternal-fetal specialists and nurse practitioners who are trained in the newest diagnostic and therapeutic options and on-site 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

We work hard to help you achieve a safe and comfortable childbirth. We can accommodate a wide variety of medically-responsible birthing plans and procedures, including birthing balls, peanut balls, squatting bars, birthing stools, epidurals, aromatherapy and music. Our physicians also regularly partner with certified midwives to help you have a positive birth experience. 

As nerve-racking as it was for us as first-time parents, the nurses there took great care of the babies and me. They taught me everything about childcare, from changing diapers to feeding and cleaning them. Going to Overlook Medical Center was the best decision I made during my pregnancy!

Most of our maternity centers feature:

Maternity Center Staff

Our board-certified obstetricians, neonatology specialists, perinatology specialists, anesthesiology specialists, maternal-fetal specialists and pediatricians are supported by specially-trained nurses, nurse practitioners and midwives. Meet our medical team >

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.  Our approach has earned us the prestigious designation of Baby-Friendly hospital by Baby-Friendly USA. Learn more about our philosophy of care >

Cesarean Delivery

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. Learn more about Cesarean surgery >

High-Risk Pregnancy

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 >

Neonatal Intensive Care Units

State-designated NICUs are available at Morristown and Overlook medical centers to handle serious complications in our smallest patients; Chilton Medical Center has a Level 2 special care nursery for infants born at 32 weeks plus of gestation. Learn more >
