Whether you’re seeking care for a specific women’s health need, planning for a healthy future for your family, or preparing for the birth of a child, we’re here for you.
Labor & Delivery
TidalHealth is here for you and your family every step of the way — throughout your pregnancy, the delivery process, and for many years to come. Labor and delivery is conveniently available at both TidalHealth Peninsula Regional in Maryland and TidalHealth Nanticoke in Delaware. No matter which location you choose, you will encounter a healthcare team committed to safety through compassionate, family-focused care.
Our private labor and delivery rooms serve as a labor, delivery, and recovery room, keeping the mother comfortable in one location. We promote the bonding of the new mother and baby allowing for skin-to-skin contact immediately after birth and throughout the hospital stay. We also encourage moms to have their baby stay in their same room versus being taken to the nursery. This option allows for additional bonding between mother and baby.
At this time due to increased rates of COVID-19 transmission in our area, Labor & Delivery and Mother-Baby patients are permitted one support person, who may stay the entire time. To reduce risk, only one designated visitor is permitted. Trained doulas are also welcome with prior approval to support laboring mothers in addition to their chosen support person. Doulas should click here to complete this form for authorization.

It is important that every woman has a primary care provider that is seen regularly to maintain good health. Your primary care provider not only helps you when you’re sick, but also helps get you scheduled for necessary screenings to detect health issues early on, before they become a more serious problem.
All women 18 years and older should have an annual women’s wellness check with their gynecologist or primary care provider. It should include a PAP smear and a clinical breast exam.
Check with your provider for what screenings you need to stay well.
Visit our Medical Testing page for more information about tests and screenings.
TidalHealth Peninsula Regional provides fertility testing. Dr. Jeffrey McKeeby, an experienced reproductive endocrinologist board certified in obstetrics and gynecology, can discuss your fertility options. His office is located at 1415 South Division Street, Salisbury.
