Preparing for Your Baby

Healthy and Happy “Birth” Days

Preparing for the arrival of a new baby is an exciting time. Winchester Hospital has a variety of programs and courses that will help make this exciting time easier and help you feel more prepared.

Recognized as one of the area’s most prominent obstetric hospitals, Winchester Hospital has more than 2,000 babies born each year at our Mother Baby Unit. Our specially-trained medical and nursing staff helps to make both mom and baby’s visit with us a healthy and happy one.

Among our services is prenatal testing such as a non-stress test, which is a non-invasive test to see how your pregnancy is progressing. The test is named “non-stress” because no stress is placed on the fetus during the test.

Take a Tour

We also offer tours of the Winchester Hospital Maternity Unit so that you and your family will be familiar with our location and layout. You’ll see that all of our maternity services are located on the same floor, which allows physicians and nursing staff to collaborate and women to have the services they need in one place.

We offer two tours of the maternity unit on the second and fourth Tuesday of every month. The first tour begins at 6 p.m. and second at 7 p.m. Both depart from the hospital's main lobby. Registration is required, so please click here to sign up for a tour. One of our staff members will greet you, show you through the unit, and can answer any questions that you and your family may have.
