We want to help make your baby's birth a memorable and meaningful experience. Created with new parents in mind, the Maternity Care centers at HealthEast hospitals are warm and calming places, where we're passionate about caring for women and their growing families.
About Maternity Care
At HealthEast, our doctors, certified nurse-midwives and nurses have the knowledge and skill to gently see you through the birth of your baby. Throughout your maternity stay, we will give you the reassurance and support you need. We know that different things are meaningful to different women and everyone has different expectations for their birth experience, so we offer personalized care that respects your wants, needs and cultural traditions.
