The Birthplace

Childbirth is not only the beginning of new life, it’s also the creation and growth of a family. And at the Birthplace, we respect the importance and intimacy of the family and encourage family members to get involved and embrace the experience.

The Birthplace at CaroMont Health is a specially crafted environment for families to share this incredible moment in life. This philosophy of family-centered care is seen throughout the space, from the soothing, comfortable rooms to our cool children’s play area. Successfully creating an atmosphere around a philosophy of care has attracted visitors from almost every state in the country as well as numerous foreign countries.

The Birthplace at CaroMont Regional Medical Center is a world-class birthing center dedicated to family-centered care and the health and safety of both mother and baby. Completed in October 2004, The Birthplace features 52 labor, delivery, recovery and postpartum (LDRP) rooms, three C-section operating suites, a 16-bed single-room Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), a family dining area, children’s play area and family resource center.

On average, 183 babies are delivered monthly at The Birthplace, equaling about 2,200 deliveries each year. In addition to labor and delivery, The Birthplace offers lactation consulting and physical therapy for pelvic floor disorders. Tours and classes for moms, dads and siblings-to-be are offered through The Birthplace’s extensive education program. At The Birthplace, our mission is to respect the importance of the family and encourage family involvement and support in our expecting mothers’ lives.
