West Shore Medical Center's beautiful eight-bed Maternal and Newborn Center includes three comfortable labor, delivery, recovery, and post-partum (LDRP) suites for a home-like birthing experience. The unit also includes private post-partum rooms.
All rooms in West Shore’s Maternal and Newborn Center feature private bathing facilities, with whirlpool tubs in LDRP suites to provide comfort and convenience. All of the new rooms are larger and provide space for family and visitors. The unit also features other amenities for families, including a viewing nursery from the corridor, kitchenette, and enhanced security measures.
The team staffing the unit includes highly specialized nurses, three obstetricians/gynecologists, and two pediatricians.
The Maternal and Newborn Center is on the third floor of the hospital, adjacent to the surgical unit, allowing for quicker access for Caesarean sections and other urgent surgeries. The redesigned unit has additional space for enhanced care of routine and unexpected birthing situations.
