The obstetrical nursing staff at the New Beginnings Birthing Center at Wilkes Regional Medical Center’s 26 registered nurses (RN’s), one licensed practical nurse (LPN) and three operating room technicians & support staff provide compassionate care for mothers and babies. Every obstetrical nurse is certified in neonatal resuscitation. Additionally, several are certified in advanced obstetrical services, including neonatal nursing, labor and delivery and breastfeeding. The obstetrical nurses have both the medical and practical experience needed to care for expectant mothers. The private labor/delivery/recovery rooms provide safe, comfortable and efficient environment for new moms. And because siblings and grandparents are also welcome, the arrival of the baby can be an experience the whole family can share. Traditional labor/delivery rooms, a cesarean-section room and newborn nursery complete this department. Learn more.
