The Birthplace at Carilion New River Valley Medical Center (CNRV) is a five–star award winner in patient satisfaction. In fact, in 2013, the unit received the award from Professional Research Consultants, Inc. (PRC) for the fourth time.*
Our highly trained team provides family–centered maternity care in a supportive, beautiful environment, which includes private rooms with sleep sofas, refrigerators, cable TVs, massage therapy for patients and many more amenities.
Our nurses are specially trained in high touch labor support, breastfeeding support and in couplet care, where a nurse cares for the mother and baby together. The care we provide is individualized and we recognize the importance of informed choice, family support, and quality education.
The Birthplace provides education programs for mothers and their families before and after the baby is born. We also offer certified lactation consultants to assist mom with breastfeeding as well as an on–site retail shop that has breast pumps, clothing and other helpful items for moms.
Our goal is to achieve the best and healthiest outcome for the baby, mother and family. As part of Carilion Clinic, our patients have streamlined access to other high–level services including the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) for high risk newborns at Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital.
The Birthplace at CNRV is a favorite choice in the New River Valley because we care for growing families, as we would our own.
