Those first precious hours are some of the most unforgettable times of your life. And since you can’t be at home, we want to make sure you feel at home. From newborn photography to birthing aides and more, we’re ready to make sure you have the best experience possible.
At Princeton, women can request the use of a birthing ball, childbirth squat bar or kneeler to help with appropriate positioning and/or labor discomfort.
At Princeton Baptist Medical Center, we are proud to offer our patients the opportunity to welcome their newest addition into the world with a certified nurse-midwife. These experienced healthcare professionals take an individualized approach, using individualized approach for your childbirth to be as natural as possible with minimal medical intervention. Midwives have a collaborative relationship with an OB physician who provides consultation as needed.
Not only does breastfeeding create an incredible bond between mother and baby, it also provides numerous health benefits for each. Our incredible lactation consultants are available 7 days a week to help mother and baby make this beautiful, vital connection.
As a Baby-Friendly® birth facility, we facilitate intimate family bonding immediately after the birth of your baby. Rooming In, meaning that you and your baby remain together in the same room throughout your stay in the hospital, is encouraged. Our team will also foster skin-to-skin contact with you and your baby. Both of these practices encourage bonding and improve a baby’s ability to breastfeed.
Level III NICU
As a Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, we offer the most extensive medical services possible for premature and at-risk babies. If your newborn needs special care, our NICU is located within our Birth Care Pavilion so that you’re never far away. Even when your baby is home from the hospital, we can continue to provide excellent care through our highly trained pediatrics department.
We are devoted to providing a quiet, relaxed environment where you can welcome the newest member of your family. Our spacious Labor & Delivery suites are all equipped with labor tubs for maximum comfort. And with amenities such as a sleeper chair, complete bathroom with shower, & WiFi, the suites can provide a positive experience for mom, partner and, eventually, new baby.
After birth, we will transfer you to one of our private postpartum rooms for plenty of skin-to-skin bonding & breastfeeding time. These spacious rooms are tastefully appointed with ample storage, a refrigerator, WiFi, a comfortable sleeper sofa for your loved one and a large bathroom with a shower.
