Obstetrics Women's Care specialists at MedStar Harbor Hospital provide expectant mothers with care that is sensitive to their needs at this very special and important time of life. Our experienced obstetrics Women's Care team prides itself on providing comprehensive, family-centered care.
Our physicians and nurses have the experience and skill necessary to care for uncomplicated as well as high-risk deliveries. Obstetricians, pediatricians, and anesthesiologists are available around the clock. There are also specialists in newborns and high-risk pregnancies on site to fulfill your every need. We offer compassionate care from before you go into labor, to the day you take your newborn home. Our main priority is to make sure this wonderful moment goes as smooth as possible.
While most births occur without complications, it is comforting to know that MedStar Harbor Hospital has a Neonatal Care Unit, which offers medical monitoring and specialized care not available in a conventional nursery. Our multidisciplinary team cares for babies who are born prematurely, have a low birth weight, or have other medical complications.
