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 sessions where you and family members can learn what to expect and how to get ready 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 board-certified physicians and specialized nurses will be here for you. Our spacious birthing suites are designed to meet your every need and provide a comfortable, secure, caring environment when your baby arrives. Our private postpartum suites include the comforts of home and plenty of room for visitors and loved ones to spend the night.

In addition to complete obstetrical and surgical services, we provide all newborn services, including hearing screening and a newborn nursery

High-risk pregnancy and genetic counseling

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.

If you’re concerned about a medical or genetic condition that might affect your pregnancy, we can help arrange ongoing monitoring and treatment.

Breastfeeding services

At Gaffney Medical Center we believe that, in addition to being a rewarding and nurturing experience, breastfeeding offers many health benefits for your growing baby. But learning to nurse can take time, practice and patience. To help you succeed, we offer services such as prenatal breastfeeding classes and assessment, breastfeeding consultations, breast pumps, feeding supplies and breastfeeding aids.

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 864-488-1588.
