Women's Pavilion & Birthplace - Cary
The Women's Pavilion & Birthplace at Cary Hospital is the first and only place to have a baby in Cary. Our expert, caring staff welcomes more than 2,500 babies each year. We provide a flexible, family-centered environment with modern, tasteful décor aimed at making you feel more comfortable and relaxed. Most importantly, we have the latest technology available to support the care of you and your baby.
During labor and delivery, you will be cared for by an experienced labor and delivery nurse, who will assist you in having the most positive birth experience possible. After delivery, a nurse with expertise in caring for mothers and newborns will help you with the physical and emotional changes that occur with the birth of a baby. All necessary supplies are kept in your room or brought to you as needed.
As part of our family-centered approach, we encourage rooming-in, meaning that your baby is kept in the room with you, rather than in the nursery. This is special time for you to get to know your newborn and learn how to care for him/her and for yourself. It is especially helpful for those who are breastfeeding.
Private, Home-Like Suites
Our private suites for labor, delivery and recovery feature a shower and tub with whirlpool jets for hydrotherapy during labor. There is also a sleep couch, rocking chair and bistro table. Each room includes a mini-refrigerator, video player/TV and WiFi for Internet access. The Coach's Corner, just down the hall, is equipped with an ice machine, microwave and vending options.
Mothers and babies are moved to a private room after delivery, where they both receive specialized care from our mother/baby nurses. Our nurses are specially trained to advise moms in newborn care and breastfeeding. A lactation consultant is also available to help with breastfeeding.
Level III Nursery
In the event you encounter any problems with your baby's birth, or if your baby requires special attention, you can rest assured that your baby is in good hands. WakeMed Cary Hospital has a Special Care Nursery, which provides care for babies needing short-term intensive care.
Please note that the WakeMed Gift Shops offer breastfeeding supplies, toiletries, etc.
