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 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.

A Nurse Devoted to You and Your Baby

Your nurse will make sure you and your baby have what you need when you need it. Our nurses are highly trained in all aspects of routine and high-risk labor and delivery. Your nurse will also provide the most up-to-date education for taking care of your newborn.

Delivering By C-Section

At Newark-Wayne Community Hospital, we are dedicated to caring for women who have had surgery. Moms who deliver by Cesarean section have caregivers with specialized expertise, which maximizes your recovery process.

Whether your C-section is scheduled ahead of time or performed by our exceptionally trained rapid response team, you and your baby will be transferred to the recovery room, with skin-to-skin contact introduced as soon as your baby is stable to start the bonding process.

Throughout your hospital stay, we will keep you informed, comfortable and secure in the knowledge that we are committed to the health and safety of both you and your baby.

Well-Newborn Nursery

Our newborn nursery staff can assist with required pre-discharge procedures, such as a New York State hearing screening and metabolic blood testing. The nursery is staffed by physicians, pediatric nurse practitioners and nurses to assist on an as-needed basis. We support and encourage "rooming in" for our families to help with the bonding process and to promote an excellent bedside teaching environment.
