The Family Birthplace at Carroll Hospital


Advanced Technology Paired with Comfort

Carroll Hospital has designed our private birthing suites to provide many of the comforts of home while you bring a new child into the world. Each spacious room features:

  • A private suite that includes a sofa bed to accommodate one support person overnight

  • A private bathroom

  • A television that also offers OB education

  • A large picture window to fill the room with sunlight

  • The ability to stay in this same room throughout your stay

Our Labor, Delivery, Recover and Postpartum (LDRP) suites look and feel much like a hotel suite, with all of the necessary medical equipment tastefully concealed behind artwork and custom cabinetry. Within moments, your LDRP suite becomes a delivery room that promotes a safe delivery and monitors the health of both mother and baby.

For your convenience, all of your care is provided in this same suite. Even after your baby is born, a pediatrician will examine him or her right in your room to allow you to observe and ask questions.

Neonatal Couplet Care Suites

Carroll Hospital is the first hospital in the Mid-Atlantic and the second hospital in the nation to offer Neonatal Couplet Care Suites, a groundbreaking approach that allows moms to room with babies who are born prematurely or require specialized care, even after the mom is discharged.

  • Private room with an in-suite bathroom and separate living area with a sleeper sofa for your support person

  • Warm, natural lighting and home-like décor

  • Built-in storage for your personal belongings

  • Cozy Kangaroo chairs that make it easy to hold your newborn, breastfeed and provide skin-to-skin care

Designed for Babies as Early as 32 Weeks

In addition to being born prematurely, there are many reasons why a baby may need to spend extra time at the hospital, including low birth weight, jaundice, respiratory difficulties or cardiac concerns. Our expert team of board-certified, in-house pediatricians and specially trained nurses will work with your family every step of the way to give your baby the best possible start.
