Having a baby is one of life's most joyous experiences. It can also be overwhelming.

    Labor and Delivery Suite

    Our highly skilled and compassionate staff will keep you well cared for and as comfortable as possible during your labor, delivery and recovery. We understand the anticipation and discomfort that can accompany childbirth. We will guide you through the process based on your needs.

    Labor and Delivery Suite

    Each private labor room includes a private bathroom and shower, a telephone, and a remote control color television. It also has equipment that can monitor your labor. The suite has three delivery rooms and a recovery room. These rooms also serve mothers who need cesarean sections. Birthing rooms are available for parents interested in natural childbirth. Family members are welcome to wait in our lounge area located on the same floor. A team of obstetricians, perinatologists, midwives and anesthesiologists are on call 24 hours a day. They are assisted by a dedicated nursing staff specially trained in childbirth.

    Care for High-Risk Moms and Newborns

    Newark Beth Israel Medical Center is a leader in diagnosing and managing high-risk pregnancies. We have been a state designated Regional Perinatal Center since 1981 and provide expert intensive care for mothers and infants in a compassionate environment. Babies are referred to us by some 30 hospitals in four counties. Learn more about our Maternal Fetal Medicine services and leadership.

    Newborn Nursery

    newborn nursery

    When your baby is not rooming in with you, he or she will stay in our newborn nursery. The nursery is located next to the postpartum unit and is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Your baby will be cared for by registered nurses who are specially trained in newborn care.

    While in the nursery, your baby will be examined daily by your personal pediatrician or a staff pediatrician. The pediatrician will give you specific instructions about the care of your infant.

    At The Beth, our top priority is keeping you and your baby safe. We give all babies and mothers matching identification bracelets right in the delivery room. Fathers or significant others get ID bracelets too. Our dedicated, full time, professional security staff helps us ensure the safest environment for you and your baby.

    Going Home With Your Baby

    Perhaps the most exciting moment of your birthing experience will be bringing your baby home.

    Going Home with Your Baby

    Before you go home, the staff taking care of you and your baby will show you how to take care of both the baby and yourself. You will learn how to bathe your baby, how to take care of your baby's umbilicus (belly button), and how to position your baby safely in the crib. You'll also learn what to expect for yourself as your body recovers, and how you can help things go smoothly.

    The State of New Jersey requires that all infants ride in an approved car safety seat. You must have a car seat to drive your baby home safely.

    Our home care coordinators can help you arrange nursing care at home, if you need it, and can show you how to contact your insurance company to see what is covered.

    Below are some resources to consider for after your baby is born:

    Educational Classes

    A variety of childbirth education classes are offered including a four-week series of preparation for labor and delivery classes, a breast-feeding class, and a monthly tour of the maternity unit. Please call 973-926-8022 for more information and to register.
