Welcome to Women’s Health at Coffee Regional Medical Center! Here, women will find all the resources they need for all ages and stages of life!

In addition to our outstanding team of physicians and mid-levels at CRH Women’s Center, Coffee Regional Medical Center has women’s health services to ensure you are keeping your health at the top of your to-do list.

Labor & Delivery Unit

Our mother and baby unit is designed to ensure the comfort and care of our mothers, babies, and fathers! Our birthing suites offer safety and comfort to our families, allowing our mothers to labor, deliver, and remain in the comfort of our spacious suites. In addition, each suite offers a full bathroom, a bed for the father, and a large picture window for beautiful views of our campus.  Our chef ensures that each birth is celebrated with a special steak dinner, offered to Mom & Dad during their stay.

We encourage you to “Room-In” with your baby during your hospital stay. Rooming-In with your baby promotes bonding and increases the breastfeeding success rates. Your baby may remain in your room except for a few quick trips to the nursery for health screenings by our nursery staff and your Pediatrician.

We feature 6 Labor & Delivery rooms as well as 5 Women’s Health rooms. We also have a Level 1 Nursery connected to our Women’s Health Unit. The nursery features a waiting room with plenty of windows for family members and friends to enjoy a glimpse of your new bundle of joy.

Our highly trained labor & delivery staff work closely with your physician to ensure the safety of both mother and baby. We will guide and support the mother and her support person through the birthing process. If a cesarean section (C-section) is required, the support person may accompany the mother to the operating room unless an emergent condition prevents it.

In addition to the physician, there are two mid-level providers on staff that work exclusively in the labor & delivery unit as an extension to your labor nurses. Both Nurse Practitioners are certified in Electronic Fetal Heart Rate Monitoring. We are proud to offer this expertise to our expecting mothers as this provides an additional layer of care for the baby during the delivery process. Your physician, however, will still deliver the baby when its time.

Our highly trained labor & delivery staff work closely with your physician to ensure the safety of both mother and baby. If you have questions regarding your delivery, please reach out to us at (912) 384-1900 ext 2380.

Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, visitors (including immediate family members) are not allowed inside the hospital or the labor & delivery unit at this time. Only the mother and father we be permitted inside the hospital. We look forward to lifting those restrictions, as we know what a special time it is to welcome a new baby. Please understand that this is for the safety of our patients.

Classes will also include a walking tour of the CRMC labor and delivery unit to familiarize the expectant mother with the facility. Expectant mothers are welcome to bring their spouse, family member or significant other to the class to ensure everyone that will be involved with the labor and delivery process is familiarized with what to expect on the day of delivery as well as the CRMC Labor & Delivery Unit.
