Why Deliver Your Baby at Virtua

Your Delivery

When you choose to have your baby at Virtua, you'll receive a birth experience that's personalized to meet your and your baby’s needs.

 

Our Maternity Centers at Virtua Memorial and Virtua Voorhees feature: 

• Caring and experienced nursing staff to help you achieve your desired birth experience

 

• Home-like labor/delivery/recovery rooms (LDRs)

• Personalized pain management support with non-medicated and medicated options

While in our mother-baby unit, your baby will stay with you in a private room so you can get to know each other throughout the remainder of your stay. To streamline communications as well as your postpartum and newborn care, a nurse who specializes in couplet care will care for both you and your baby.
