The Maternity Department Welcomes All New Mothers 

 

Visitation: Warren General Hospital is limiting visitation to the hours 2pm-6pm and only having 1 visitor at a time.  The maternity department will allow the father of the baby (or support person) to be present outside of these hours and involved in the labor and delivery of the baby. We ask that all other visitors come during the visitation hours set by WGH and only immediate family come to visit. We ask if anyone has any symptoms of any illness to stay away so we can protect our patients and staff.

November is Prematurity Awareness month

When born before the 37th week of pregnancy, a baby is considered to be premature or preterm. Babies born early may miss out on important developments in the womb and, the earlier a baby is born, the higher the risk of serious complications.

The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that 15 million babies are born preterm every year, translating to roughly one in ten of all births in the U.S. Research also shows racial and ethnic disparities in preterm birth rates; According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2019, the rate of preterm birth among African-American women (14.4%) was about 50 percent higher than the rate of preterm birth among white or Hispanic women (9.3% and 10% respectively).

 

 

Comments from previous patients

Such great doctors and midwives. They made me feel comfortable.

If we needed anything they were always at the ready to help.

My baby had to stay a extra 5 days after he was born and the nurses always let me have as much time as I wanted with him. They were all amazing and I am very grateful for ALL of them.

All the nurses on the maternity ward were amazing. Especially *Morgan, *Lori and *Pam!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The care that we received at Warren General Hospital for the birth of our child was exceptional. We felt at ease with the amazing providers, nurses, students, and staff that were involved in our care. They provided great support and shared in our excitement with welcoming our baby into the world. Everyone was very well educated and provided us with many resources to ease our transition home with a baby. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience and highly recommend Warren General maternity and obstetrics!
