Our caring and experienced physicians, labor and delivery nurses, and certified nurse midwives strive to:
Both the Duke Birthing Center and The Birth Place at Duke Regional Hospital offer homey labor delivery suites equipped with unobtrusive state-of-the-art medical technology and a neonatal stabilization team that is prepared to attend any delivery. Our knowledgeable nurses, midwives, and postpartum and lactation specialists are experts in helping new moms learn to care for their babies.
Birthing balls and bars are available to laboring moms, as is a pantry to family members. Unless a parent instructs us otherwise, we do not routinely offer supplemental formula, glucose water, or pacifiers to newborns. We encourage healthy babies to room with mom, but they're also welcome to stay in the well-baby nurseries.
