Private, Home-Like Suites
Our private suites for labor, delivery and recovery are beautifully decorated and feature a shower and tub with whirlpool jets for hydrotherapy during labor. There is also a sleep couch, rocking chair and a bistro table and chairs in the mother's room for dad or support persons.
Each room includes a mini-refrigerator, video player/television 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 if you need help with breastfeeding.
Home to 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.
This facility shares a full time staff of highly skilled neonatologists and 24-hour neonatal nurse practitioners with our Raleigh Campus. When necessary, babies are transferred from Cary Hospital to the Raleigh Campus via our specially equipped Children's Transport Vehicle, staffed by an experienced team of transport professionals. With their doctor's permission, moms are welcome to transfer and complete their postpartum stay at our Women's Pavilion & Birthplace - Raleigh so they can be near baby.
