Pregnancy and Deliveries

Beginning with prenatal care, through labor and delivery and follow-up care after the birth of your baby, we will be with you, providing expertise at our state of the art facility.
Graham offers personalized care during your labor and the birth of your baby. We also have a registered lactation consultant on staff who will work with you and your baby to provide breastfeeding support.
Graham Hospital is licensed as a Level II Nursery. In simple terms, this means we have the facility, training and nurses to care for select infants of higher risk, including preterm babies and twins. Our physicians and nurses are skilled in fetal monitoring and are Neonatal Resuscitation providers.
Our obstetrics team will expertly guide you through all stages of your pregnancy, providing you with an individualized care plan including regular check-ups and prenatal testing. You will learn about nutrition, develop a birth plan and prepare to welcome your bundle of joy.
Labor and Delivery
The birthing unit at Graham Hospital offers state-of-the-art facilities. Our birthing unit is designed to provide you with the best experience possible. We offer private postpartum, triage and labor and delivery rooms, all designed to ensure both the comfort and safety of you and your newborn. Our unit is securely locked down with continuous infant security monitoring to ensure maximum safety for you and your newborn.
Sometimes deliveries don’t go as planned. Should you require a cesarean section, our surgery suite is located within the obstetrics department to help ensure a quick transition and the safe delivery of your infant.

How We are Serving You:
Having COVID aggravated my COPD which led me to Graham Cardiovascular & Pulmonary Rehabilitation. When I started in February, I was on a 50 foot oxygen cord. Since starting my workout, I can now do most of my exercises without oxygen. I would recommend this program to anyone. This program get me back to chasing my grandkids around again.Bob Laird
