Rowan Medical Center

Maternity services

You and your baby are our top priorities

When you’re expecting a child, Novant Health Rowan 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 Rowan County area, who can help 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 classes and events 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.

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.

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.

Breastfeeding services

At Rowan 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. To speak with one of our lactation consultants, call 704-210-5188.

Support after the baby arrives

Starting a new life with your newborn can be difficult in the beginning. 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 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
. Please, stay in touch with your Novant Health physician if you need evaluation and treatment.

Baby Friendly Designated Hospital

Novant Health Rowan Medical Center is proud to be a baby friendly designated hospital, a global program that encourages and recognizes hospitals and birthing centers for offering an optimal level of care. Sponsored by the World Health Organization and the United Nations Children’s Fund.
