At Inova Alexandria Hospital, you'll benefit from the personalized care provided by our entire highly skilled and seasoned healthcare team. That’s why each year thousands of women in our community choose to give birth at our hospital.

At our Birthing Center, women labor, deliver and recover in a private, home-like suite in the care of highly skilled nurses who specialize in the birthing experience. 

Should you need them, we are pleased to offer expert services in breastfeeding support, high-risk pregnancy and antenatal testing, and a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). And all of our expectant mothers can benefit from the services of our personal childbirth navigator.

Inova Brock Family Antenatal Testing Center provides specialized care for pregnancies that are at risk for maternal, fetal or obstetric complications. Our maternal-fetal medicine specialists, known as perinatologists, work as a team with our staff of expert perinatal nurses. Together, they assist obstetricians or nurse-midwives by offering specialized services and compassionate care to mothers and their unborn babies, from pre-pregnancy counseling through delivery.

The center uses state-of-the-art technology in a comfortable and private setting to assist:

  • Prospective parents seeking genetic counseling and/or genetic testing
  • Pregnant women who need comprehensive diagnostic tests to determine the health of their babies
  • Women whose pregnancies are considered high risk

Most women have uncomplicated pregnancies and deliveries, yet it’s comforting to know that Inova Alexandria Hospital offers a fully staffed level 3 neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) that features the latest technology. Premature or special needs newborns receive around the-clock care in our family-centered NICU by specially trained board-certified newborn physicians, known as neonatologists, as well as specialized nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and nutritionists.

Your baby’s team of caregivers will explain to you procedures, equipment and the special care and needs of high risk or premature infants. Before you go home with your baby, we will give you complete instructions on home care. If your baby is being discharged on medications and an apnea monitor, you may have the option of spending one night to care for your infant where you will be supported by the NICU staff. We are always close by to answer your questions and provide help if you need it.
