Mother & Baby Unit


Expecting? Expect the very best at United Regional. We offer personalized care before, during and after pregnancy. Prenatal and Childbirth Classes are offered for expectant parents so that they will be well-prepared.


Most newborns will stay with their parents in family-centered post-partum rooms. But if an infant is premature or born with medical issues, such as jaundice or infections, our Level II Special Care Nursery and its team will be on hand to provide specialized care. The Level II Nursery has advanced equipment to care for complex conditions premature babies often experience including infant CPAP, Giraffe beds, and infant ventilators.

And with our experienced and caring staff, you can relax knowing that you and your newborn are in capable hands.
