At Cape Fear Valley, we deliver more than 4,500 babies each year. Our vast experience, spanning more than four decades, enables us to provide a full range of maternity services, from natural childbirth to high-risk obstetrics. Cape Fear Valley Family Birth Center consists of 15 LDR (Labor, Delivery, Recovery) rooms, to provide single-room service for labor, delivery and initial recovery. Afterwards, new moms and their infants receive quality follow-up care in our Family Centered Care Unit, where one nurse cares for mother and child. Mothers are encouraged to "room in" with their newborns virtually 24 hours a day. Should problems arise, it's comforting to know that Cape Fear Valley provides a 44-bed Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. This is a Level IV unit, the highest level possible and Cape Fear Region's only Level IV NICU. It consists of 21 intensive-care beds, plus a 23-bed Intermediate Care Unit right next door. Medical supervision is provided by five board-certified neonatologists.
