Following the birth of your baby, you and your infant will spend the remainder of your stay in our Maternity Unit and Well Baby Nursery, located adjacent to our labor and delivery suites. You will be cared for by highly skilled nurses trained and experienced in both mother and baby care.
William R. Atkins, MD
You may choose to have your baby stay in your room with you all day or you may prefer that he or she spend time in our Well Baby Nursery while you rest. Having your infant "room in" allows you the opportunity to become comfortable and confident in your ability to care for your baby.
We encourage you and your family to participate in your infant's care as well as your own care. Let us know what is important to you as you go through the recovery process so we can help you learn what is needed to care for yourself and your infant.
In the event of complicated or high-risk pregnancies, our Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is located in the heart of our Maternity Unit to improve the health outcome of the baby and provide peace of mind for expecting parents. Led by a team of neonatologists from The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia that are on staff at The Chester County Hospital, our NICU is certified as a Level III NICU, the highest in Chester County. The unit administers to the specialized needs of infants who require advanced care upon birth.
