Saint Francis Maternity Services

Saint Francis Maternity is known for its exceptional, skilled staff and high level of personal care we provide to each expectant mother, newborn and their families.

Our private birthing rooms allow expectant mothers to remain in one comfortable room at every stage, from labor and delivery through post-partum care. Rooms are equipped with a labor/delivery bed, fetal monitoring system and warming beds for newborns.


For newborns requiring extra medical attention, we have a Special Care Nursery (SCN) backed by Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children, who serves as the exclusive provider of Level II neonatology services. All infants admitted to the SCN receive care from a Nemours neonatologist who specializes in treating the most complex and high-risk newborns.
