NW Pavilion Gift ShopWhen it comes to women's health care needs, Jersey Shore offers the most advanced obstetrics and gynecology services in the region. Whether you are thinking about starting a family or are experiencing a complex pregnancy, our OB/GYNs provide an unparalleled level of expertise and comprehensive treatment options, understanding that you are going through a special time in your life.

Our maternal services feature a state designated, Level III High Risk Perinatal Center, where board certified sub-specialists provide 24/7 coverage and in-hospital consultation for any complication. 

We also work collaboratively with our Maternal Fetal Medicine physicians, midwives, obstetricians and genetic counselors. We are proud to be home to one of the region’s only state designated, Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), where board certified physicians provide your baby with specialized neonatal care so that they will be in the best of hands upon delivery. After your baby is born, you'll be glad to know that we work closely with our team of board certified specialists at K. Hovnanian Children's Hospital.

Center for Breastfeeding

Jersey Shore supports the Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative, developed by UNICEF and WHO, that fosters a culture of support for breastfeeding mothers in hospitals. We recognize that you may also still need support and expert advice after you go home with your baby especially while breastfeeding. Our Center for Breastfeeding provides comprehensive outpatient lactation services by International Board Certified Lactation Consultants to assist you during this time. Prenatal consults are also available.

Safety is Our Priority

Safety is a priority at Jersey Shore, so our Maternity Nursery Unit is locked and only accessible to authorized staff, maternity patients, and their families. In addition, every baby wears a security bracelet that monitors the baby's location to assure safety. With an outstanding reputation for quality and supportive educational programs, we are dedicated to your family's needs for a lifetime.

Education to Help You and Your Family Prepare
We know it's important that you learn all you can about your pregnancy, childbirth, and after care. Our multi-session Childbirth Preparation Program prepares you and your coach for the normal, natural process of delivering your baby. The classes will help you understand the physical and emotional changes that occur during pregnancy. Demonstrations and practice sessions help you learn breathing and relaxation techniques that are designed to get you through labor and delivery with as little anxiety as possible.

Real photographers, capturing baby's first moments.

Jersey Shore University Medical Center proudly offers Bella Baby Photography


Bringing experienced freelance photographers, Bella Baby 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. 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.
