Carolinas HealthCare System Pineville offers comprehensive maternity services in a warm and comfortable environment. Our maternity center has been recognized for supporting multiple birthing options and working with you to accommodate your birth plan. Our family-centered approach involves mother-baby care and allows you and your baby to stay together in your private room. The same nurse cares for you and your baby, encouraging family bonding and breastfeeding. Skin-to-skin contact and mother-baby care is important in the first hours of life.

Labor, delivery, recovery and postpartum (LDRP) care all take place in one of our private, spacious suites—all designed around the needs of your family. Suites offer a TV, free Wi-Fi, whirlpool tub and a guest bed for a comfortable home-like experience.

For premature infants or newborns needing special care immediately after birth, we offer a Level III Neonatal Care Unit (NCU). Our NCU staff includes neonatologists, registered nurses and neonatal nurse practitioners who offer the latest technology in a warm and supportive environment.

Our NCU can provide extra assistance for babies born as early as 28 weeks. Should even more specialized care be required, transport to the Level IV Neonatal Intensive Care Nursery at Carolinas HealthCare System is available.
