Labor, delivery & postpartum care
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 and baby comfortable with their family. We promote the bonding of the new family, allowing skin-to-skin contact immediately after birth and throughout the hospital stay.
At TidalHealth Peninsula Regional, once stable for the rest of the stay the family will move to the postpartum unit.
We also encourage moms to have their baby stay in the same room versus being taken to the nursery. This option allows for additional bonding between mother and baby.
Visitation may be restricted based on the prevalence of COVID-19 in the community. Please check out our visiting page for the latest on our visiting policy.

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.
