*DUE TO LIMITED SPACE ON THE LABOR & DELIVERY UNIT, THE TOUR IS LIMITED TO THE PREGNANT MOTHER AND ONE SUPPORT PERSON ONLY PLEASE. Children are not permitted to attend the Tour*.
A Maternal/Child Department Nurse discusses the hospital's Maternity Services and offers a guided tour of the Labor and Delivery Birthing Suites. Please note that the tour does not visit the Mother/Baby area or operating rooms. On occasion, the Labor and Delivery area does not have an open room to see on the Tour. In this event, we will still walk to the Labor and Delivery area so that you will see where to register when you are in labor.
The Expectant Parent Orientation/Labor and Delivery Tour is not a class. It does not cover the content discussed in Childbirth Preparation or any of the classes we offer. This is an opportunity to become familiar with the hospital campus: where to park, how to locate Labor and Delivery, to discuss some general questions regarding your hospital stay and Abington Jefferson services available to you.
Expectant parents should register BEFORE the seventh month of pregnancy whenever possible. Pre-Registration is required. For more information please call the Childbirth Education Department at 215-481-6800.
