When you’re ready to deliver, so are we
When you choose one of our Women’s Care providers to care for you during pregnancy, you get the added benefit of seven board-certified OB Hospitalists. Our OB/GYNs work with OB Hospitalists Group, LLC at Bayhealth Hospital, Sussex Campus to ensure that an experienced obstetrician is at the ready 24 hours a day, seven days a week to deliver your baby.
Sometimes your dedicated obstetrician may already be delivering a baby, or is tied up in the office. Having an OB hospitalist program means pregnant women can be confident that an experienced obstetrician will be delivering her baby, even if her own physician can’t be present.
Hospitalist is a term for physicians who specialize in caring for patients in the hospital. OB Hospitalist Group, LLC is nationally renowned for the development, staffing and management of hospital-based OB/GYN practices. The board-certified OB/GYN physicians of the OB Hospitalist Group will provide 24/7 in-house coverage of Women’s and Children’s Services and in the OB Emergency Room at Bayhealth Hospital, Sussex Campus.
Baby-Friendly™ birth facility
Our Women’s Care obstetricians deliver babies at Bayhealth Hospital, Sussex Campus – a Baby-Friendly™ hospital. The hospital is among an exclusive group of around 200 hospitals and birth centers, out of 3,000 facilities in the United States, who have achieved Baby-Friendly status.
Since 2010, the hospital has been incorporating Baby-Friendly’s “10 Steps to Successful Breastfeeding,” designed to provide women with information, confidence and skills needed to breastfeed. When a mother chooses to breastfeed, one of Bayhealth’s International Board Certified Lactation Consultants works with the mother and newborn.
Baby-Friendly USA, Inc. is the approving body in the United States for the Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative (BFHI), a global program sponsored by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). The initiative encourages and recognizes hospitals and birthing centers that offer an optimal level of care for breastfeeding mothers and their babies.
