Obstetrical Services

Welcome to the Obstetrical Department at Huntington Hospital. Here, the gentle hands of caring professionals help your infant into the world. Right in your suite, these caregivers have immediate access to the most advanced equipment and monitoring systems, welcoming baby more safely.

Our obstetrical department offers eight combined labor, delivery and recovery rooms (LDRs) for vaginal birth. 24-hour obstetrical, neonatology, and anesthesia services are available in-house.

Following delivery, mother and baby share the same room during their hospital stay. This innovative postpartum care program called couplet care, ensuring that mothers' and babies' needs are addressed in concert, also allows new mothers to participate in their babies' early care and development.

Obstetrical services at Huntington Hospital include Labor and Delivery, Postpartum Care, Fetal Surgery, a High-Risk Pregnancy Unit and access to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU). We also offer a number of parent support services, which you can learn more about below.

In-Person Tour and Orientation

We have designed the orientation and tour of Labor and Delivery and Maternity to help you plan for birth at Huntington Hospital. The Orientation presentation will provide you with information, handouts, and forms selected to simplify your registration, admission and birth experience. Small groups will then tour Labor and Delivery and Maternity and have the opportunity to meet with an RN assigned to the individual unit. The RN will provide information specific to each unit as well as answers to your individual questions.

The Maternity Orientation and Tour is offered:

  • The first Sunday of each month at 2 pm.
  • The third Monday of each month at 7 pm (excluding holiday weekends).
  • Note that our Maternity Orientation and Tour will NOT be offered on Sunday, January 3, 2016 (due to New Year’s), Sunday, July 3, 2016 (due to Independence Day), or on Sunday, September 4, 2016 (due to Labor Day).
