Every baby's birth is special at CRMC. Physicians, nurse midwives and our staff of experienced OB nurses coach and support expectant parents as they go through the birthing process. The Birthing Center meets the needs of all expectant parents including those who wish to have natural childbirth in a home-like setting with the security of knowing that state-of-the-art equipment is close by in the event of an emergency.
We want to give you the flexibility to create the most unique, family-centered birthing experience available. We respect your values, your concerns and your wishes, so our staff works hard to keep you comfortably in charge of your own childbirth experience. You can choose from an experienced staff of obstetricians, family practitioners, certified nurse midwives and pediatricians who, along with our labor and delivery nurses, provide you personal attention and easy accessibility combined with state-of-the-art technology.
We have been delivering babies at Cookeville Regional Medical Center since 1950, and we currently average 1,600 births per year.
We offer a 32-bed nursery, and 12 all-private, labor-delivery-recovery (LDR) rooms. We also offer six private observation/traige rooms. In addition to the post partum rooms, the Birthing Center includes cesarean surgical suites and is equipped to handle any complications that may arise during labor that require more complex care. Lactation Services are available to our mothers as well.
For babies who require special care, we offer a six-bed intermediate nursery with state-of-the-art equipment. This area includes special bonding room for mom to visit her baby if she is discharged before her baby is.
Our staff is happy to answer your questions, that is why we have "Peace of Mind" Calls available for expecting mothers and fathers. Qualified staff is available 24 hours a day to answer any questions you have.
