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.

After bringing baby home some new mothers feel overwhelmed, stressed or anxious. It’s a common feeling. An estimated 15 to 20 percent of postpartum patients feel that way within the first few days after delivery. It’s the No. 1 complication of having a baby.
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.
