Birth Center

At Rex, we know that choosing a hospital and an obstetrician in Raleigh to deliver your baby is an important decision for you and your family. Rex Women's Center is a wonderful place for your family to begin - and grow up.

We deliver more babies than any other hospital in the Triangle. A survey conducted by Scarborough Research Corporation Plus found that women in Wake County prefer Rex obstetrics and maternity services two to one. It's no secret that new and expectant moms and dads in our community trust Rex. 

And here's why: Our goals at Rex Women's Center are centered around our new moms, new dads and new babies. We're proud to offer a free pregnancy newsletter delivered directly to your desktop each week with content that is customized to your stage of pregnancy, including birth class information and other important updates.

About the Women's Center

The "big day" when your bundle of joy arrives is coming and will be here before you know it. Rex Women's Center is honored to be part of your family's birthday celebration. We strive to offer you and your family a comforting birth environment that is home-like, private and safe. Rex Women's Center has neonatology services available on-site 24 hours a day. Plus, anesthesiologists are available on-site 24 hours a day for epidurals, so there's no waiting for pain relief.

For any extra-special care your new little one may need, the Rex Special Care Nursery is specially equipped to care for newborns who need close monitoring or are critically ill. A new Special Care Nursery Resource Room is available to parents of Special Care Nursery babies. And while at Rex, each first-time breastfeeding mom will receive a visit from a lactation consultant with Rex Lactation Services prior to going home.

As you prepare for your new arrival, if you have any questions about your birth experience or other issues such as breastfeeding, baby care or being a new parent, just ask. Rex Women's Center nurses and staff are well educated and well trained in caring for newborns - and new parents. We are happy to help you with your new arrival in any way we can.

Women's Center Classes

Speaking of help, sometimes a class or two is just what new mom and new dad might need to prepare for the birth of a new little one. Rex Women's Center offers a myriad of classes on a variety of topics including breastfeeding, exercise and preparing for childbirth. Please note that some class locations and times may have temporarily changed due to updated visitation policy for flu season.
