There's no place like home. But Chilton Hospital's Mother Baby Center sure comes close.
Your childbirth experience is a memory that will last forever, deserving far more than your standard hospital stay. Chilton's Mother Baby Center was completely redesigned and renovated with that in mind, creating the perfect setting for this cherished life event. Our modernized facility combines the region's leading obstetric care with unique comforts and amenities for the entire family, such as massages for moms and sleep accommodations for dads or support partners.

Although breast-feeding is natural, all of our mothers have assistance and education available to them. Chilton Hospital lactation specialists are available to help new mothers during their stay after giving birth. While all nurses of the hospital's Mother Baby Center are qualified to help nursing mothers, lactation specialists offer advanced training and knowledge in breast-feeding support. Their services are available free-of-charge throughout a mother's hospital stay.
Additionally, Chilton offers outpatient lactation consultations, sells breast pumps, as well as breast-feeding supplies. To determine if a breast pump is necessary and, if so, which type is best, please consult with your physician or lactation specialist.
For more information about Lactation Services, please call (973) 831-5263.
Labor and Delivery
Our private, home-like Labor/Delivery/Recovery rooms contain state-of-the-art equipment and is staffed by specially trained registered nurses who work with your obstetrician to provide individualized care. Chilton Hospital provides exceptional care to new families. Anesthesiologists are available 24 hours a day. Two fully equipped operating suites are part of our Labor and Delivery Unit.
After you go Home
Chilton's commitment to you and your baby doesn't end once you are discharged. We know the first days of parenthood can be filled with questions about everything from diapers to colic. And how do you do that swaddle thing again?
Every new mother will receive a call from one of our staff members to check on her recovery and address any concerns. And that's just the beginning. You will also have access to a 24-hour phone line that allows you to speak with a nurse about your newborn's care – even in the middle of the night. (We'll be awake, too!)
