Our center brings together a caring staff of obstetricians, pediatricians, family practitioners and anesthesiologists as well as a certified nurse-midwife and registered nurses who have received national certification in obstetrical nursing.
You may choose your own obstetrician or certified nurse-midwife to work closely with you and oversee every aspect of your care. Both you and your baby will be cared for by the same nurse. Our nurses are educated in all aspects of maternity and newborn care and are assisted by licensed practical nurses, nursing aides and student nurses. Our obstetrical nurses consistently score among the highest in the country in family-centered maternity care.
We are here to support you and your family before, during and after the birth. Whenever you feel you need assistance, don't hesitate to ask. Our nurses are educated to provide answers to your questions and to give experienced practical advice on everything from bathing and feeding to comforting fussy infants.
Nurses and six lactation consultants lend round-the-clock support seven days a week-even after mom and baby go home. A nurse from the Noreen Stonor Drexel Birthing Center will call you soon after you go home to see how you are doing. Our 24-hour "Warm Line" is staffed by nurses who are available 24 hours a day to answer questions about newborn care or just to chat with new mothers.
