Woodhull Medical Center's maternity ward offers moms-to-be more privacy
Many doctors say Brooklyn?s moms-to-be can expect privacy at Woodhull Medical Center?s newly renovated maternity ward in Bushwick.
The maternity ward now offers state-of-the-art equipment and private rooms for all mothers. The newborn nursery has a neonatal intensive care unit, intermediate and continuing care units and a 15-bed well-baby nursery. Doctors say it has only been open for a few weeks, but it is already making a difference for some mothers and their newborns.
Directors of the center say it is the only hospital in Brooklyn that provides private rooms for all postpartum mothers. They say the private rooms allow for better recuperation and one-on-one education for first-time mothers.
