Feb. 14, 2018 - Hampton's Healthy Families program has partnered with Sentara Careplex to provide services for new and expecting parents at Sentara's new Family Maternity Center,  3000 Coliseum Drive.

To get things started, expecting parents and their coaches can take Labor and My Baby, a free prenatal parenting workshop that's designed to calm fears and prepare them for the challenges and delights of parenthood. The LAMB workshops at Sentara will include a food voucher that can be used in the Careplex cafeteria.

New parents will also get a Welcome Baby visit from Healthy Families. And starting soon each Welcome Baby visit will include a special package complete with information on community resources, Healthy Families classes and playgroups, child development, and a few gifts for the baby.

The maternity center, which opened late last year, features seven labor & delivery, recovery and postpartum suites that allow new mother and baby, as well as a spouse, partner or family member, to remain in the mother's private room from the onset of labor until time to go home. 

To learn more about these and other Healthy Families programs, visit New parents can also go to if they missed the initial hospital visit but still want to hear from Healthy Families.
