Maternity

We’re here for you and your baby

As a mother-to-be, you have a lot on your mind. Receiving great medical care is not something you should have to worry about. Novant Health Brunswick Medical Center is here for you, during your pregnancy, for your birthing experience and after your baby is born.

Actually, our services begin even before you conceive. We work closely with Novant Health obstetricians in the Brunswick County area who can ensure that you are healthy and prepared for pregnancy.

Maternity education

Reliable information is never more important than when you are preparing for the arrival of your new baby. Even if this is not your first, you may still benefit from some refresher classes.

We offer a variety of educational sessions where you and family members can learn what to expect and how to prepare for the newest member of the family. You can also take a tour of our birthing facilities so that when the time comes, you’ll be in familiar surroundings.

Your birthing experience

When your baby is on its way, our team of obstetricians, gynecologists, pediatricians, anesthesiologists and certified registered nurses will ensure that you and your baby receive expert care. Our birthing suites are designed to meet your every need and provide a comfortable, secure, caring environment when your baby arrives. Our private rooms include the comforts of home and plenty of room for visitors.

Newborn services

In addition to complete obstetrical and surgical services, we provide all newborn services including hearing screening, a newborn nursery and even a baby photo service and online nursery.

For our online nursery, a professional photographer will take your newborn’s very first photograph. Portraits can be seen, as they are taken, on a full screen monitor from the comfort of your bed. You’ll have the opportunity to create birth announcements, photo packages as gifts, baby keepsakes, and a unique, personalized, password-protected webpage, which can be easily shared with friends and family.

Pre-registration recommended

We recommend that you pre-register for your hospital stay, which will streamline your admission when the baby’s coming.

High-risk pregnancy

Because of age and other factors, your pregnancy might be classified as “high risk.” That means you should take special precautions and perhaps make lifestyle adjustments based on advice from your Novant Health obstetrician. 

Support after the baby arrives

Although it just doesn’t seem right, new mothers are not always happy. In fact, conditions such as rapid hormone change, fatigue, the physical and emotional stress of giving birth and sleep deprivation can combine to make you downright depressed, even with a beautiful new baby.

It is nothing to be ashamed of, and you are certainly not alone. One in five new mothers will experience a serious postpartum mood disorder. Read this about postpartum depression. Then, please, stay in touch with your Novant Health physician if you need evaluation and treatment.

Find a doctor

The first step in good maternity care is to have an obstetrician you can trust – and it’s never too soon. You can find a Novant Health physician online, or call us at 910-721-CARE (2273).
