A labor and delivery unit is a place filled with anticipation, hope and the magic of new life.  The Eastern Kentucky Advanced Women’s Care Center at Pikeville Medical Center (PMC) is a place where these feelings flourish. Expectant and new mothers often feel a sense of warmth and comfort while in the unit, as they are surrounded by a dedicated team of healthcare professionals, from experienced OB/GYNs to compassionate nurses. Pregnancy and childbirth can be overwhelming, and the labor and delivery team at PMC strives to provide the support both mothers and babies need every step of the way.

The labor and delivery process can be both exciting and nerve-wracking, but the OB/GYN team at PMC strives to make it a memorable and joyous occasion for patients and their families. The spacious, comfortable birthing suites are designed to provide a comforting atmosphere, encouraging relaxation during the process of childbirth. When the miraculous moment finally arrives, patients can trust that the skillful staff is there to guide them through the process with expertise and care.

From cutting-edge technology and advanced pain management to the compassion shown to each patient, the Eastern Kentucky Advanced Women’s Care Center is one of the most innovative in the area. Home of the region’s only Advanced Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), which can care for infants born as early as 28 weeks, it is equipped to meet needs that go beyond delivery. Having access to a NICU is a vital factor when deciding where to give birth, and choosing a medical center that can meet a newborn’s needs—no matter how routine or how serious—is important.

PMC offers the largest on-call, board-certified OB/GYN physician team in the region, which is one of the many reasons thousands of families have chosen PMC as they plan for their new arrival.
