Women's Care at Vidant Medical Center

Women's Care at Vidant Medical Center is dedicated to meeting the unique health needs of women. We realize that your health changes as you age; that's why we provide care and information to you throughout all phases of your life.

We specialize in care for pregnant women, including high-risk antepartum (before birth), labor and delivery, and postpartum (after birth) care. We are the regional referral center for high-risk pregnancies, and James and Connie Maynard Children's Hospital at Vidant Medical Center has the only Level III neonatal intensive care unit in eastern North Carolina. In late 2011, we were named a Baby-Friendly® birth facility. Read about the award and what steps we took to achieve this honor. We have also developed a birth plan for you and your family. Fill out the birth plan and share it with us and your doctors so that we will all know your preferences for labor, birth and immediately after.

Women's Care also provides the latest advances in gynecologic surgery. We understand the importance of your family and encourage them to participate in your care.

Did you know the "Period of Purple Crying" is a normal, but frustrating period of increased crying that all infants experience in the first few weeks and months after birth? Join us in the ClickforBabies.org campaign to knit or crochet caps to be given to newborn babies in November and December. The caps can be any pattern and in any shade of purple. For safety reasons, the caps can't have strings. Contact Elaine Clark at 252-847-2072 for more information.
