What to Expect When Visiting Saint Francis Healthcare Maternity Services
For any expecting mother, the level of care provided her, the newborn,
and the family is of the utmost importance. This is an emotional and joyous
time, so having the best possible care in a comfortable setting is the
perfect scenario for the pregnant woman. Because new mothers and newborns
require a lot of attention, our team at Saint Francis Healthcare offers
comprehensive care in our maternity services. Here are some things you
can expect when you come to our medical center.
- We offer personal and private care, providing mothers with a private birthing
room. This means the mother can go through every stage — labor,
delivery, and post-delivery — in the comfort of one room. You will
have your baby at your bedside 24 hours a day.
- We have an expert team that not only provides the personalized maternity
care you need and deserve, but we also have 24/7 on-site neonatal care
and OBGYN and anesthesia coverage.
- Our on-site services also include childbirth, baby classes, imaging services,
lactation consultants, and breastfeeding classes. This provides mothers
with the tools they need to be completely prepared.
When a newborn needs special care and attention, our maternity services
offer a Special Care Nursery (SCM) backed by Nemours / Alfred I. duPont
Hospital for Children. A neurologist experienced in treating high-risk
newborns will be available to treat even the most complex situations.
Saint Francis Healthcare is the proud recipient of the Joint Commission
Perinatal Care Certification. Only five hospitals in the nation receive
this recognition for consistently delivering the highest standards in
quality and safe care for mothers and babies. We also received the Highmark
Delaware / Blue Cross Blue Shield Distinction Center + for our work in
Maternity Care. This is the same level of care you can expect when you
come to Saint Francis.
