Labor and delivery
From delivering babies to treating the health concerns of all women, women's health issues receive plenty of attention at Sentara Obici. We believe that the staff of our 22-bed Women's Center provides women and their families with care that is second to none.
Our spacious, private rooms accommodate our patients and family support system in anticipation of the birth of your child. Our family-centered approach allows your family to be as involved in the birth as much as possible. A visitation policy is in place to promote a comfortable, safe environment.
Special Care for Infants with Special Needs
Sentara Obici's special affiliation with the Children's Hospital of The King's Daughters insures that newborns that experience difficulty receive the specialized care they require. As a member of this neonatal network, Sentara Obici can immediately transfer critical infants to a neonatal intensive care nursery. Regular training sessions with CHKD nurses and doctors provide our nurses with the most up-to-date skills in caring for sick infants. Our newborn nursery has 24-hour on-site coverage by board-certified pediatricians.
A variety of childbirth preparation classes for the whole family are offered, and private consultation with the Lactation Consultant can address breastfeeding concerns needing more individualized attention.
