Maternity Care at Piedmont Eastside

Each year, our team welcomes more than 1,500 babies into the world. We're by your side every step of the way from pregnancy planning to breastfeeding and infant care. As partners in your healthcare, we work with moms-to-be to provide a customized birthing experience centered on you and your family. You’ll have all the care, information and support you need before, during and after your birth. Our experts are here for you if your baby comes earlier than expected and requires special care. Your family is in great hands with the team in our Level III neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).


Birthing Suites

For over three decades at Piedmont Eastside, our highly skilled physicians and nurses have been working together to provide expectant families with an exceptional birth experience. Our labor and delivery suites are modeled for maximum space and comfort that offer our mothers a private delivery area, private bath and shower along with a fold-out bed for the comfort and relaxation of your labor coach.


Unparalleled Experience

At Piedmont Eastside, we go out of our way to give you the experience you deserve. We celebrate alongside you, presenting every new mom with a birthday cake from a local, nonprofit bake shop and have a wide range of concierge services available to cater to moms' needs before, during and after delivery. Complimentary room service and accommodations for your partner, spouse or loved one help create a comfortable, relaxed environment in a hotel-like setting for you to enjoy while you celebrate life's most precious gift. In the event of an unexpected complication, we are fully prepared to react immediately with operating rooms that are maintained 24/7 for the benefit and safety of Mother and Baby.


Family-Centered Approach

The staff at Piedmont Eastside recognizes the importance of support from friends and family at this special time and will work together with them to enhance their experience during this very special celebration. Following delivery and recovery, Mother and Baby are relocated to our Mother-Baby unit where couplet care is provided, giving the new family time to bond, introduce the newborn to family members and friends, and give Mother and newborn the freedom and privacy to practice breastfeeding.


Experienced, Compassionate Nurses

Our nurses have many years of practical, as well as in-service education that maintains and updates their knowledge in the field of lactation. In the event of complications or challenges with breastfeeding your newborn, Piedmont Eastside provides two lactation specialists who are available to assist new mothers as needed. Prior to discharge, we offer and encourage our new mothers and family members to attend a discharge session where their questions can be answered by a nurse who specializes in the care of a newborn. Forty-eight hours following discharge, the family will receive a follow-up phone call to see if there are any follow-up questions and ensure that the transition from hospital to home is progressing nicely.
