When you choose Meridian Health for your maternity care, you can take comfort knowing the skilled and compassionate Meridian family will be there for your growing family every step of the way.

During your stay, primary care for mom and baby is provided by our remarkable team of certified registered nurses, each of whom has been specially trained in all aspects of childbirth. The staff is available to assist and answer any questions you may have.

Our team understands how important this milestone is for you and your family. The experiences we provide are designed to celebrate this happy occasion with a number of amenities and services to make your stay memorable. From our series of prenatal and post-natal education classes to professional photography to commemorate the birth of your child, we are proud to offer a personalized and distinctive experience.

Concierge Care can assist with everything from reservations for out of town family members to special meals to assisting with errands and household tasks while you are in the hospital to bedside spa services. The service is available while you are in the hospital, but you can call ahead for hair or make-up appointments so you can look your best for your first photos with your baby.

Staying Connected

Becoming a parent is exciting, but it can also be overwhelming. Meridian Health provides access to online communities and programs that will help you connect with other parents, clinicians, local resources and physicians for your entire family.

MeridianMomtourage.com is a place to share advice, ask questions, learn valuable information from Meridian Health experts and get access to our hospitals' classes and events. Here, you can grow your own "momtourage" and discuss everything from your choice in an OB/GYN and the best hospital for delivery, to kid-friendly local events, to coping with your teen learning to drive!

Once you bring your baby home, the Meridian Pediatric Network offers the most coordinated and complete care in Monmouth and Ocean counties. With almost 300 pediatricians, family practitioners and obstetricians in communities near you, working side-by-side with the region's largest group of pediatric sub specialists at K. Hovnanian Children's Hospital at Jersey Shore University Medical Center, the Meridian Pediatric Network guides patients and their families through every step of care.
