Welcoming Baby into the World
The Beaufort Memorial Birthing Center has supported Lowcountry families with comprehensive prenatal and newborn care. We’re home to the county’s only Level II nursery and a team of skilled, board-certified OB/GYN specialists.
As part of our mission to provide safe, fulfilling birth experiences, we’re in the midst of a $6 million investment in Birthing Center enhancements and amenities for expecting mothers, including:
- mobile fetal monitoring during labor
- a lactation support team led by a board-certified lactation consultant
- 24/7 support line for breastfeeding, newborn care or postpartum questions
See why we’ve been the first choice of Beaufort families for more than 70 years.
Birthing Center Tours? Tour our beautiful birth center and suites on the first and third Monday of each month starting at 7 p.m. Registration not required — just visit the Birthing Center lobby a few minutes before the tour starts. Children age 14 and older, please.
Childbirth Education? Baby University offers a range of classes to help parents prepare for pregnancy and infancy milestones including childbirth, newborn care, and breastfeeding.
Support The lactation team is available to coach and assist during breastfeeding. Once you’re home, they’re still available to answer questions via the 24/7 warm line at (843) 441.4586.
What to Expect Prepare for your hospital stay long before labor begins. We can help you fill out preadmission paperwork, decipher insurance requirements, or provide financial counseling.
Preregistration We recommend calling 843-522-5112 to preregister for your hospital stay before the eighth month of your pregnancy.
Insurance Don’t forget to notify your insurance company of your upcoming birth as soon as possible to comply with any precertification requirements. Then, contact them again within two days of delivery to add your child to your insurance plan.
Paternity Establish your child’s biological father as his or her legal father, too. Read more.
