Childbirth Center

About Our Childbirth & Maternity Center

Just as we have brought thousands of new babies in to the world, we are proud to have brought new life to the Jane H. Booker Childbirth Center at Riverview Medical Center.

You Can Expect Great Things

In 2010, Riverview announced that it was Expecting Great Things! This campaign celebrated the rebirth of our Childbirth Center in a unique and interactive way, inviting the community to follow the progress of the construction project through milestones one would experience during a pregnancy! The end result: a totally reborn Childbirth Center designed to create a spa-like experience with exceptional care!  

While the Center has been reborn, it continues to feature the many things that make it so special: exceptional doctors, Magnet-recognized nurses, a Level II nursery with a direct connection to K. Hovnanian Children's Hospital, private rooms with a view of the Navesink River, and extra special attention through Concierge Care which provides access to everything from bedside spa services to special deliveries from local restaurants. 

The Childbirth Team

Having the right doctor can make all the difference when you're pregnant. You want someone who supports you in this incredible life experience while providing excellent clinical care.   

When you select an obstetrician affiliated with Riverview, you can be certain you've chosen the best. Riverview's doctors have years of practical experience backed by the finest training from some of the most prestigious medical schools. Together they comprise a team of board certified obstetricians, neonatologists, maternal fetal specialists, anesthesiologists, and 24-hour in-house pediatricians, so you and your baby will have the very best care.

The Experience

Our team understands how important this milestone is for you and your family and the experience we provide are designed to celebrate this happy occasion with a number of amenities and services to make your stay memorable. 

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!  To access Concierge Care dial extension 1111 at Riverview Medical Center. It will be our pleasure to serve you!

Bella Baby Photography: Real photographers, capturing baby's first moments. 

 

Bringing experienced freelance photographers, Bella Baby Photography captures your baby's first photograph with a natural, artistic style using natural light, professional grade digital cameras, and the idea that babies look most beautiful when being held in their parents' arms or cuddled in their own blankets. BellaBaby These photographers work with our team of nurses to communicate with each new mom, and offer a free 15 minute session to take the photos. You will be able to electronically view and order your photos the very same day. The images are then securely posted on Bella Baby's website for you to access and share with your friends before you even leave the medical center.
