Welcoming your new baby to the world will be one of your life's most treasured moments. We at the Women's & Children's Pavilion feel honored to be part of your birthing experience.
We believe that every birth is special, every baby is beautiful, and every mom deserves the best care. Our updated facilities help us ensure mothers and newborns in New Bern and the surrounding areas have a pleasant overall experience. Let us tell you more about how we will make your labor and delivery safe, calm, and comfortable.
A caring maternity staff
Our birthing center team assists you through all aspects of childbirth. Here are some experts who will be here to help you as you welcome your new baby to the world:
Obstetricians and gynecologists (OB-GYNs). Our providers have extensive experience with both natural and cesarean births, so you can rest easy knowing that you have a team of experts by your side.
Labor and delivery nurses. To provide you with quality care and additional privacy, we assign you a dedicated day nurse and night nurse to be with you throughout your entire stay with us.
A certified lactation consultant. For moms wishing to explore nursing as an option, our international board-certified lactation consultant is available to answer questions and offer advice.
Comfortable birthing center amenities and a relaxing environment
If ever there was a time to be pampered, it's during childbirth. That's why we built the Women's & Children's Pavilion with spa-inspired private rooms and luxury bathrooms.
Each private room includes:
- A rocking chair for mom and baby.
- A sleeper sofa for mom's support person.
- An adjustable Nara bassinet that provides bedside access to baby.
- Spa-quality bathrobes.
We also understand the importance of placing a premium on security. Our facility has an advanced infant security system to help ensure your baby is safe during your stay.
