Everything a new mother
needs is located on a single floor. Maury Regional’s fourth floor centralizes
our labor/delivery, nursery, neonatal intensive care, and obstetrics units, and offers a comfortable,
quiet waiting area for families.
Ten comfortable private
labor/deliver/recovery rooms allow mothers to go through all the stages of
labor, delivery and recovery in the same room. Most of the rooms have great
outside views, and all have been designed to create a welcoming, comforting
environment for new mothers and babies.
Maury Regional has 24-hour anesthesiology coverage as well as two fully equipped and staffed operating rooms where caesarian sections and other obstetric procedures take place.

and Delivery and Obstetrics units are available. Tours begin in the family waiting room on the fourth floor.

Follow-Up Care for New Mothers, Families
Once new mothers recover
from delivery, they are taken down the hall to the obstetrics (OB) unit, where all
but two rooms are private. Rooms are spacious and designed
to accommodate the physical challenges facing new mothers. Sleeper sofas are
located in the rooms for a family member who wants to stay.
Maury Regional Medical Center offers a highly trained nursing staff and board certified lactation consultants to help new mothers begin breastfeeding.
In addition to seeing inpatients, they also accept referrals from physicians
on an outpatient basis. For more information, contact Maury Regional's Lactation
Office at 931.490.7074.
Our Nursery, Your Baby’s First Home
Nursery has everything your new baby needs to get a good start. Your baby’s
first home is safe and secure. Maury Regional’s
spacious nursery accommodates as many as 30 infants at once, and
is staffed round the clock. Comprehensive security procedures and
systems are in place that allow video monitoring of the entire unit,
and let staff instantly secure stairwells and elevators if necessary.
Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
While many newborns are at home with their parents in a day or so, other babies need a higher level of care. The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is home to newborns with a wide variety of conditions, including prematurity, infection and respiratory problems.

Let Others Meet Your Baby on the World Wide Web
During your stay, you
will be given the opportunity to have your baby’s photo taken and posted
on our password-protected Web
Nursery. This is a simple, no-hassle way to share first pictures of your
new arrival with friends and family.
All photos and accompanying information are password-protected so only those to whom you give permission can view your baby’s photos.
