Getting Ready for the Big Day

Our physicians, nurses and care team are dedicated to helping you through your entire birthing experience. It is our goal to provide you with the best possible care while also preparing you to care for your newborn at home.

If you are looking for a board-certified physician to deliver your baby, Chesapeake Regional Gynecology & Obstetrics offers a wide range of services.

We also offer a variety of parenting and childbirth classes.

Due to COVID-19, tours and classes have been suspended until further notice. Please call 757-312-6508 for more information.

Breastfeeding

Getting off to a good start is the key to successful breastfeeding. Certified lactation consultants are available to help during your stay and after you return home. Our team offers Breastfeeding Classes and provides the support and education new moms need to help learn effective positioning techniques and solve challenges during the first weeks.

Call 757-312-3159 to learn more. 

We're Prepared

Our experienced and dedicated team is prepared to respond to unexpected emergencies. 

In-house Hospitalists

To provide the absolute highest standard of care to patients, we have partnered with Ob Hospitalist Group (OBHG) to ensure that an experienced OB/GYN is available 24/7 to evaluate and treat women with pregnancy and post-delivery concerns.

OBHG hospitalists are physicians who are trained in best practices to care for pregnant women while they’re in the hospital and their obstetrician isn’t available. They do not replace the care patients receive from their regular OB/GYN physician. Instead, they serve as an extension of the patient’s regular doctor and the high-quality care that doctor provides. 

In addition to handling deliveries, OB hospitalists assist with any issues or emergencies that may arise, regardless of whether patients have their own doctors. This includes anything from elevated blood pressure to more serious issues that may require immediate surgery.

Pediatric hospitalists are also available 24 hours a day. We share highly specialized neonatologists who also staff the local children's hospital. 

Obstetrics Emergency Department (OB ED)

To help eliminate the anxiety and stress expectant mothers might experience when visiting a traditional emergency department, Chesapeake Regional has developed an OB ED that ensures quick, efficient care. The obstetrical provider can assess, treat and discharge patients much faster than in a general emergency department or obstetrical triage setting. It’s a valuable resource for pregnancy-related emergencies that just can’t wait until morning.

The OB ED is dedicated to pregnant women, serving those over 17 weeks gestation. Located on the Labor & Delivery unit, board-certified physician specialists provide full-time, specialized care for expectant mothers. It's open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and is equipped to handle pregnancy-related emergencies.

Level II Nursery

Should you deliver a preterm baby at 32 weeks who is as little as 3.3 pounds, our staff will provide the very best care for your newborn in our Level II Nursery, equipped with everything necessary to care for little ones who have stabilized, but need to stay in the hospital a bit longer before they are ready to go home.

Rest Easy Rooms

When mothers are discharged, but their baby is still in the Level II Nursery, a Rest Easy room can be reserved for the comfort and convenience of our parents. Its queen sized bed with a television, sink and attached restroom are located right across the hall from the nursery.

Pain Management Options

Depending on the patient's health care provider and certain criteria, the following options are available:

  • Labor tub
  • Birthing Balls
  • Shower
  • Walking, Movement
  • Intravenous (IV) Pain Management
  • Epidural
  • Nitrous Oxide

Postpartum Support

After bringing baby home some new mothers feel overwhelmed, stressed or anxious. It’s a common feeling. 

Our twice monthly Postpartum Support Group brings new mothers together to calm fears and talk with others feeling the same way. An experienced facilitator helps answer questions and offers support, encouragement, information, resources and solutions for coping. 

The group is free and open to women during pregnancy or first year postpartum. There's no need to register. Infants are welcome. Email Chesapeake@PostpartumVA.org with questions.

Due to COVID-19, tours and classes have been suspended until further notice. Please call 757-312-6508 for more information.
