We had planned to deliver our baby at Rex, but my OBGYN recently decided to stop delivering babies. We now have to choose a different doctor, and my choices are more limited due to the fact we're already in the 3rd trimester and practices are "full". One of the doctors I am considering delivers at WakeMed Cary, which I don't know much about. We live about an equal distance from both hospitals. Any feedback would be appreciated. I was with a single doctor practice, and it seems like the options left for Rex involve much larger practices. Thanks!

I recommend UNC family practice or the UNC midwives. I thought it was worth the drive from Cary.

Highly recommend Triangle Ob/Gyn in Cary. Doctors and midwives are wonderful and they deliver at WakeMed Cary. I had a baby 10 weeks ago..was a high risk pregnancy and i was hospitalized for 17 days. Nurses at the hospital were wonderful too.

To echo mkal, my wife and I just had our second baby about 6 weeks ago at WakeMed Cary. The day we went in they were incredibly busy, but you would never know it from the treatment we got. Every nurse, doctor, technician, etc, could NOT have been nicer. We wrote in a letter to them complimenting them on how wonderful they were. I'd highly recommend them.

We had a very bad (week long) experience at WakeMed (in Raleigh), so I didn't even consider the Cary location when I had my daughter. I had a great experience at Rex though. Very, very nice. My sister-in-law recently had a baby at WakeMed (also in Raleigh) and she wasn't very pleased with that place either.
My kids are doing well now, but we have had experiences at most of the area hospitals (WakeMed, Duke Health Raleigh Hospital, Rex, UNC Chapel Hill, and the main campus Duke). The only one I do not recommend is WakeMed.

I had a fantastic experience at WakeMed Cary also. Much better than my experience with my first son at UNC, although he did need the NICU and they were wonderful.

I'll definitely deliver there again, although I'll choose a different doctor this time. I used Physicians for Women and did not have a great experience. I keep hearing good things about Triangle Ob as well, so that's likely who I'll try.

Default WakeMed Cary is as good as it gets!

We had our second child at WakeMed Cary 6 weeks back and we were very happy. Everything happens for a reason and I am sure that you will be happy with whichever choice you make.

We also used Triangle and they were very good. They have a good team, on the big day you will receive the care you deserve.

Good luck to you!

I agree with you about WakeMed in Raleigh. My wife and I had to go their for some testing once and it was just terrible. Honestly, it's night and day between those two facilities in my opinion. WakeMed Raleigh, not a fan...WakeMed Cary, LOVE LOVE LOVE it

Oh, and to all those considering Triangle OB/GYN, that's where my wife goes, and she's been very happy. I don't think Dr. Mulvaney is doing deliveries anymore unless he's delivered one for you in the past, but if you can get him, he's awesome

+1 for Wakemed Cary. Our son was born there in December. Simply a great place. Every single person we encountered there was amazing.

Another recommendation for Triangle OB/GYN and Wakemed Cary - and a thumbs down for REX based on my personal experience.
