When you have a baby, you deserve to feel safe and secure. You want to feel supported throughout your pregnancy and beyond.

As Charlottesville's only Baby-Friendly® hospital, we strive to give you just that. We follow best practices in promoting the health and well-being of mothers and infants, providing:

  • A private, beautiful suite
  • Your newborn by your side
  • Midwives, anesthesiologists, and lactation consultants on staff

If you have a high-risk pregnancy or problems happen while you're having the baby, you can trust you're in the hands of experts. Our neonatal intensive care unit gives every child a chance. 

We've also been recognized by Newsweek on its Best Maternity Hospitals 2021 list. Hospitals on this list must show high standards of care for both the mother and baby. 

Our OB-GYN and maternity services were chosen as a 2019 Charlottesville Family Favorite.
