Duke Birthing Center
We know that having a baby is one of the most important milestones in your family’s life. As OB experts who deliver more than 3,000 babies every year, we do everything possible to ensure your delivery takes place in a safe, comfortable environment and is tailored to your and your baby’s needs.
As part of your prenatal care, we also offer the following classes to help you get ready for childbirth and learn what to expect afterward. Our classes help you prepare for labor and delivery and C-sections and gain a better understanding about epidurals. We also prepare you for life as a new mom, with classes that focus on breastfeeding, baby care, infant/child CPR, tips for getting back in shape, and more.
Our unit includes:
20 labor rooms with whirlpool baths, TV/DVDs, and couches or chairs
16 mother/baby postpartum rooms with private showers, recliners or couches, and TV/DVDs.
