Christiana Care Maternity

On the most wonderful day of your life, you want your family with you. You want to be treated with dignity—to feel like a mother, not a hospital patient. You want the best possible care for your baby. And you want to be sure that when you get home, you feel confident to handle the new challenges of motherhood.

At Christiana Care, we deliver all of that and more. With more than 6,000 babies born at Christiana Hospital each year, we have more experience than any other birthing center in Delaware. That experience shows in everything we do. Our board-certified obstetricians are equipped with advanced technology to manage both high-risk and normal deliveries. Christiana Hospital is the only high risk delivering hospital in Delaware offering Level III neonatal intensive care. The NICU provides 24/7 onsite board certified neonatologists. Our neonatal intensive-care unit is fully equipped with the technology and personnel to provide the highest standards of acute care for the newest members of the families we serve. After delivery, you will enjoy a private room and experience family-centered care that puts your baby at your bedside, 24 hours a day. Our commitment to the highest level of care for infant feeding and mother-baby bonding has earned us a Baby-Friendly™ designation by the Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative—a global program of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF).
