IT ALL BEGINS HERE.

Birthing Center selected time and time again.

If anyone can multi-task with equal measures of poise and aplomb, it’s Loren Belk -- a busy mother of three who also works part-time as a pediatric Physical Therapist. Resting momentarily on the living room sofa of her new home, Loren cuddled her sleepy newborn son Henry as she promised to help her five-year-old daughter Kate find Barbie-doll accessories and kept a careful watch on the playful antics of her two-year-old toddler William.

When Loren and her family moved back to Mount Airy in September of last year, she already knew she would be having her third child at Northern Hospital. “We lived in Winston-Salem when I got pregnant, but I knew I wanted to have that one-on-one, personalized care that is the hallmark of the Birthing Center.”

Loren’s familiarity with Northern’s Birthing Center is, well, part of her family history. For starters, she was born there 31 years ago;  and all three of her children have opened their eyes for the first-time in Mount Airy’s community hospital.  “I had some complications with William’s birth, and it sometimes got scary for me – but my nurse never left my side the entire time,” recalls Loren.  “And this time, with Henry’s birth, labor had to be induced since I was past my due date.  But Dr. DeVore was wonderful and all the nurses were there for me, too -- every step of the way.”  

Shortly after giving birth to Henry (on February 15, 2018), Loren, along with her husband Brandon, a marketing manager, readied themselves for the steady stream of well-wishers who would begin making their way to the Birthing Center. “I was very grateful for the clean and spacious suite we had – especially since we have a large family and everybody came!” said Loren. “It honestly felt like being at a four-star hotel.”  

“It’s a great hospital, with caring professionals and wonderful service,” said Loren.  “When I tell my friends in Winston-Salem about the kind of personal attention I received, they're all very impressed by the care I received.”
