Mother & Baby
Central Carolina Hospital's birthing center consists of 5 private and spacious labor and delivery suites. We have taken measures to make these rooms as comfortable as possible. Our birthing suites provide additional amenities add such as private bathrooms with Jacuzzi tubs, sleeper sofas for dads, central monitoring, and in room infant care areas. The Labor and Delivery Unit provides management of premature labor, fetal surveillance and delivery of term infants.
This unit maintains an outreach relationship with Tertiary Care Centers to advise and facilitate the transfer of premature labor patients and other high risk OB's.
The Level Two nursery provides care by our Pediatric Hospitalist group to well neonates and also those who require supportive care. Those infants who require intubation and ventilation are stabilized with the proper equipment and then transferred to a tertiary care facility. The nursery is equipped with Isolettes to care for stable premature infants who require time to grow, and bilights for the infant with hyperbilirubinemia.
Mother/baby "room in" service
Our mother/baby "room in" service allows you to be with, and care for, your newborn for as many hours as you wish during your in-hospital stay. If you choose, your baby may spend time in the nursery where there are systems in place to help keep your baby safe and securely monitored.
Visiting hours are flexible to accommodate your family. In keeping with our family centered philosophy, we strongly encourage siblings to visit. If they are under the age of 14, they should be accompanied by an adult. Please make sure siblings and visitors have no sign or fever, colds or other infections when they come to visit, simply as a precaution for you and your baby.
