Maternity Care

Our comfortable and intimate labor and delivery suites are close to home and feel like home, too. They foster a bonding environment for parents and their newborn baby. After birth, we also extend our services to help you and your family get used to the family addition, including a lactation consultant and Tender Transitions support group.

The birth of a baby is an exciting and life-changing experience. At Pottstown Hospital, we are committed to helping you during this special time through quality maternity care, and special programs and support. Our family-centered approach helps you understand as much as possible about the physical and emotional changes that occur during pregnancy, birth, and parenthood. The labor support partner is strongly encouraged to attend.

Breastfeeding Class

While breastfeeding is a natural, healthy way to feed a baby, new mothers often need guidance and support. The "how-tos" of breastfeeding, common myths and prevention of problems are some of the topics covered by Board Certified Lactation Consultants in this one-evening class. Moms who are unsure if they want to breastfeed are also encouraged to take this class so that when the time is right, you can make an informed decision. Dads-to-be are encouraged to attend!
