A Team Approach
During your pregnancy, you may be seen by other members of our team, including anesthesiologists, nurses, and social workers, as well as other specialists, such as endocrinologists and nutritionists. We coordinate your care so that the multiple specialists can review your test results and images at the same time.
Dedicated Nurse Coordinator
Our nurse coordinator will assist with your appointments to reduce your number of visits to our clinics and help you get the most benefit from the time you spend with us.
Our Level IV neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) includes the Intensive Care Nursery, Transitional Care Nursery, Special Care Nursery, and the Duke Regional Hospital Special Care Nursery. Depending on the severity of your baby’s condition, you may be scheduled for a cesarean section, and your baby may go directly to the NICU after delivery. Our NICU is equipped to treat babies with heart issues, as well as those born as early as 32 weeks. And we also have a specialized pediatric cardiac intensive care unit (PCICU) for children with heart disease.
Knowing what to expect during and after delivery can make the process feel less scary. We offer tours of our delivery rooms, nurseries, PCICU, and other facilities.
