Everyday Miracles

We are proud to offer complete, compassionate maternity care. We are here to support mothers and babies, from prenatal care to birth and beyond.

Coronavirus Information from Penn Obstetrics

Obstetrical providers across the health system have been working from the beginning of the epidemic to make sure that we are able to continue to provide care to our patients that is personal, based on good science, and meets the high standards we have for care at Penn. We have many processes in place to make sure the birth of your child is safe and special.

Appointments and Procedures: How We're Keeping You Safe

At Penn Medicine, our highest priority is making sure you get the care you need, when you need it, in the safest way possible.

We've implemented new safety protocols for in-person appointments and procedures. We are continually evaluating patient care to improve treatment and reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19.

We also have answers to frequently asked questions about COVID-19, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and how you can help keep your baby safe.

At Penn Medicine we deliver more than 9,000 babies each year in Philadelphia at the Hospital of the University of Philadelphia (HUP) and at Pennsylvania Hospital (PAH). Where you receive your prenatal care determines where you deliver. We are committed to ensuring the health and well-being of you and your baby. At both hospitals we are Baby Friendly and offer 24-hour rooming-in with your infant, midwifery services, lactation support, maternal-fetal medicine consultations, obstetrical ultrasound and antenatal testing, obstetric anesthesia, and have level III neonatal intensive care units staffed by neonatologists from Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

You can find similar services at Chester County Hospital (CCH) where we deliver about 2,400 babies annually.

With every pregnancy new experiences, questions and concerns may arise. Our staff is experienced and ready to provide you with the knowledge, confidence, and skills to help you make the best choices in preparing for one of life's most exciting moments.

If you are looking for an obstetrician or midwife the first step is to decide where you would like to deliver. Once you have decided on a hospital then you can decide on which practice. Some of the practices also offer prenatal care at Penn Medicine Radnor, Valley Forge and Cherry Hill.
