About Our Maternity Care Program
Top Ranked in the Nation by Newsweek
Our number one goal for each and every family who entrusts their care to us is to make your childbirth experience as fulfilling and memorable as possible. That’s why we have created our very own maternity care model called “Family-Centered Care.” The model emphasizes the nuclear family unit throughout the birthing process — from admission to discharge — and allows mother and child to stay together every moment that you’re with us.
Ocean Medical Center is nationally ranked by Newsweek on the 2020 list of Best Maternity Hospitals – an elite distinction that recognizes facilities that have excelled in providing care to mothers, newborns, and their families. This includes achieving low rates of C-section, episiotomy and early elective deliveries, and following crucial protocols to protect mothers and babies. Ocean Medical Center is the only hospital in Ocean county to receive this designation.
The Experience Of Concierge Care
Our team understands how important this milestone is for you and your family. The experiences we provide are designed to celebrate this happy occasion with a number of amenities and services to make your stay memorable. From our series of prenatal and post-natal education classes to professional photography to commemorate the birth of your child, we are proud to offer a personalized and distinctive experience.
Concierge Care can assist with everything from reservations for out of town family members to special meals to assisting with errands and household tasks while you are in the hospital to bedside spa services! The service is available while you are in the hospital, but you can call ahead for hair or make-up appointments so you can look your best for your first photos with your baby. To access Concierge Care, dial extension 1111 at Ocean Medical Center. It will be our pleasure to serve you.
Our Maternity Unit
Safety is a priority at Ocean Medical Center, so our Maternal Child Services Unit is locked and accessible only to authorized staff, maternity patients, and their families. As an added precaution, every infant wears a security safety bracelet. Furthermore, our unit offers a 24-hour nursery, childcare education aired on closed-circuit television and a host of premium maternity services.
Bella Baby Photography: Real Photographers, Capturing Baby’s First Moments.
Bringing experienced freelance photographers, Bella Baby Photography captures your baby’s first photograph with a natural, artistic style using natural light, professional grade digital cameras, and the idea that babies look most beautiful when being held in their parents’ arms or cuddled in their own blankets. These photographers work with our team of nurses to communicate with each new mom, and offer a free 15 minute session to take the photos. You will be able to electronically view and order your photos the very same day. The images are then securely posted on Bella Baby’s website for you to access and share with your friends before you even leave the medical center.
