WakeMed Raleigh’s Birthplace has private birthing rooms that resembles home, complete with a marble bath with tub and shower to help ease the pain of labor. Staff and equipment are brought to the mother so that her birth experience can be a private time. If the mother's doctor advises a cesarean birth, surgical suites are right down the hall. If dad chooses to spend the night, he can take advantage of the comfortable pullout bed in the mother's private room. The newborn nursery is located right outside mom's door. If problems arise during a mother's pregnancy or her baby's birth, the medical staff at the Women's Pavilion & Birthplace - Raleigh, which includes a perinatologist who specializes in high-risk pregnancies, supports the doctor or midwife caring for a mother if she is hospitalized during her pregnancy.
