We also offer a variety of parenting and childbirth classes.

Sweet Seedlings Photography
To capture some of your baby's first moments, Sweet Seedlings photography will create images of your newborn in the safety and security of your hospital room. A variety of packages are offered to suit your needs and budget, and photographers will supply professionally edited images the same day as the photoshoot. If for any reason you are unable to have photos taken during your stay, Sweet Seedlings provides the option to schedule an appointment for a later date.
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.
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.
