Maternity

Martha's Vineyard Hospital's Maternity Department has a strong focus on family-centered care.

At the heart of the Maternity Department are its three LDRP rooms - spaces designed for labor, delivery, recovery and post-partum care. In most cases, these inviting rooms become a family's home for the entire duration of the birth experience.

Our staff, with the support of all Hospital employees, are committed to making every birth a memorable and special occasion. The Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative demonstrates the commitment we all share. It is a program established by the World Health Organization (WHO) and UNICEF to educate, promote and support the highest level of care for infant nutrition and mother-baby bonding. We promote and support your choice to provide the best nutrition for your baby. Learn more about Our Baby-Friendly Initiative click here.

The Maternity Department offers childbirth education classes throughout the year.
