First Moments' Maternity Services

Welcome to First Moments Maternity Services

The birth of a baby is one of life's most precious moments, and Community Medical Center is fully committed to making safety and comfort a top priority for our patients. CMC's state-of-the-art technology combined with nurturing care makes CMC a top choice for maternity care. From childbirth education classes to breastfeeding support, we're with expectant moms every step of the way.

Our obstetricians are all board certified and the First Moments Maternity Unit is staffed by exceptionally caring and compassionate nurses who specialize in maternity and newborn care. The unit is equipped with private labor-delivery-recovery rooms for deliveries in a relaxed and home-like setting, complete with Jacuzzis, as well as an all-private mother-baby unit that creates the ideal environment for mothers to rest, recuperate and bond with their new baby. Moms have access to anesthesia services 24/7 and a fully equipped operating suite for cesarean births or complicated, high-risk deliveries.

A newborn nursery and a dedicated Level 2 special care unit for infants requiring special attention is also available, and neonatologists are onsite 24/7.

Women may also choose the care of certified nurse midwives who work in collaboration with physicians. Our goal is to provide mothers with the birth experience of their choice.
