Common Questions
Q. Where do I go to be admitted?
A. Between 7AM and 8PM, you will go to the Admitting Office on the first floor to be registered and will then be escorted to Labor and Delivery.

After 8PM, you will be admitted through the Emergency Department. If your physician wants you to be evaluated in the hospital prior to your admission, you will be examined in our Labor Exam Triage Room located in the Labor & Delivery Unit. You will first need to register in the Emergency Department and then you will be sent to the Labor Exam Room.

Q. Who should come with me?
A. We welcome up to two persons to assist you during your labor.

Q. What should I bring?
A. A small bag with socks, reading material, hard candy or lollipops, a toothbrush and toothpaste and a robe and slippers. Your support person may also want to bring a few "comfort items" for his/her use. If you have a suitcase, your family can bring it to your room on the Maternity Unit after you deliver. In your suitcase you should include a good supportive bra (nursing bra if you will be breastfeeding), undergarments and baby clothes for going home. Please leave jewelry, valuables and large amounts of money at home. You should also bring an approved car seat for your baby.

Q. Can I visit the unit before I am hospitalized?
A. Yes, we welcome you to take a tour of the Maternity Unit. Please call 908-994-5193 to schedule an appointment.
