    Maternity Services at Emory University Hospital Midtownlabor suite

    For the past 100 years, our physicians and nurses have helped bring healthy and premature infants into the world. The use of "mother-baby" suites at Emory University Hospital Midtown exemplifies developmentally supportive care. From birth, newborns are placed in the same room as their mothers and fathers so they can immediately begin to bond.

    Services in our Maternity Center include:

    • Spacious labor, delivery and recovery rooms
    • Level III neonatal intensive care nursery, featuring developmental care concepts;
    • Board certified breast-feeding (lactation) specialists
    • Unlimited visitation for father or support person in addition to grandparent and sibling visitation
    • Complete perinatal education programs

    Located on the third level of the newly renovated Emory University Hospital Midtown, the birthing center includes 11 labor and delivery rooms, 36 mother-baby suites, and general and special care nurseries — all located on one floor. In a soothing, home-like setting, parents receive expert attention coupled with a caring atmosphere that makes their experience of bringing life into the world extra special.

    This Center is specifically designed to uphold and carry out our philosophy of developmentally supportive care, a highly specialized and nurturing care that encourages family involvement and ensures the best development of infants. They were the first to bring this philosophy, originally developed for premature infants, to the south. Today, they apply that same special care to all of the newborns.
