Wait times represent the average estimated length of time from registration to being assigned a "first provider" (a doctor, nurse practitioner or physician assistant). Times displayed for Atlantic Health Systems are:

  • Reported as an average of wait times for the previous 2 hours of patients that have presented to the emergency department and have been seen by a provider
  • Refreshed at least every 15 minutes

Many circumstances can affect wait times - for example, patients arriving by ambulance or with life-threatening injuries or illnesses. Patients with severe conditions will be seen before those with less-serious problems or ailments. These times are provided for informational purposes only and cannot be guaranteed upon arrival.

Online Childbirth Class

Atlantic Health System’s Parent Education Departments offer an online childbirth class for expectant parents who are unable to attend on-site class or want further education. 

Our user-friendly, web-based program uses videos, personal stories, animations, activities and games to help soon-to-be parents prepare for the arrival of their new baby.

Online Childbirth Topics

Some of the material covered in our program includes:

– bodily changes, discomforts, warning signs, nutrition and exercise
– preparing for birth, pre-labor signs and onset of labor, including a showcase of real-life birth stories
Medical procedures
– epidurals and cesarean sections
Comfort techniques
– breathing, relaxation, massage, visualization, focal points, hydrotherapy, labor and pushing positions, and advice for partners

Getting Connected

Our online childbirth class works on both PCs and Macs with high-speed Internet access. The basic program costs $120 and includes access to the class and the ability to email the educator. The deluxe package costs $160 and offers the same features as the basic program, but also includes a private hospital tour and a one-hour, in-person question and answer session and labor rehearsal with one of our certified childbirth instructors.
