Delivering at Newark-Wayne Community Hospital

Where you choose to deliver your baby is one of the most important decisions you'll ever make. At the Marshall Birthing Center at Newark-Wayne Community Hospital, our commitment to provide the highest level of personalized attention and the latest medical expertise for you and your baby has earned Newark-Wayne Community Hospital the trust of women and families for nearly 60 years. Our highly-skilled, compassionate physicians, nurse midwives, and nurses offer guidance and support through every step of the birthing process and beyond.

Each baby is unique and special - and so is each delivery and recovery. At Newark-Wayne Community Hospital, we offer multiple birthing options that allow you to customize your experience according to your needs, in an emotionally supportive, culturally sensitive environment. This approach helps you and your baby get off to a great start together.

Spacious, Comfortable Birthing Suites

Our six suites accommodate all three phases of childbirth - labor, delivery, and recovery. Each suite is equipped with amenities to make you feel more at ease during labor and delivery, including a comfortable and adjustable bed, a private bathroom and shower, a rocking chair, and a satellite TV. Accommodations can be made for a support person to stay overnight, and there is ample space for visitors during the postpartum period in your private postpartum room. Room-service menus for postpartum moms offer a wide variety of tasty selections (including vegetarian options) from 8 am until 10 pm.
