Pregnancy and Childbirth/Maternity

Comprehensive pregnancy and childbirth services

Having a baby is one of the most exciting and rewarding times in a woman’s life, and Carlisle Regional Medical Center is dedicated to providing expectant mothers and newborns with the finest care during this special time. Our high-quality maternity services are provided by obstetricians, labor and delivery specialists, nurses and other caring professionals in a welcoming, comfortable environment.

You’ll find the full spectrum of care from prenatal to post-partum care, including high-risk pregnancy care and advanced labor and delivery services. Our comprehensive care extends beyond delivery, with a full range of educational resources for new parents.

Prenatal care

Carlisle Regional Medical Center's comprehensive care begins in the earliest stages of pregnancy, with prenatal checkups and services tailored to your specific needs. You'll learn about proper nutrition and work with your obstetrician to develop a birth plan, choose a pediatrician, and get properly prepared.

High-risk pregnancy care

Perinatologists (doctors who specialize in high-risk pregnancy care) are available to manage pregnancy-related conditions such as gestational diabetes or preeclampsia, as well as provide specialized care for those with existing medical conditions.

Labor and delivery

Our state-of-the-art delivery rooms provide everything doctors, nurses and other maternal specialists need to provide you with excellent care.
