Labor & Delivery


Our nursing staff treats you like family.

The obstetrical nursing staff at the New Beginnings Birthing Center has the experience and dedication required to care for the tiny miracles that arrive each day. With more than 450 combined years of experience, the center’s 20 registered nurses (RN’s), one licensed practical nurse (LPN) and two 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.

Our obstetrical nurses have both the medical and practical experience needed to care for expectant mothers. The staff’s longevity demonstrates their commitment and dedication to the medical center and the community. The obstetrical unit has a very low staff turnover which contributes to high ranking on patient satisfaction surveys. Many of our obstetrical nurses have been nominated by patients for the Values In Action Award-a program that recognizes Wake Forest Baptist Health – Wilkes Medical Center employees who go above and beyond the call of duty to care for their patients.  The New Beginnings Birth Center staff has been recognized by PRC (Professional Research Consultants) as a Top Performer, ranking them #1 in customer service.

Our attractively furnished, 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 your little one can be an experience te whole family can share. Traditional labor/delivery rooms, a cesarean-section room and newborn nursery complete this department.
