Conway Medical Center (CMC) is pleased to announce a new tradition to celebrate the birth of babies at The BirthPlace at CMC. Each time a baby is born, “Braham’s Lullaby” can be heard throughout the hospital welcoming a baby being born.
The system was installed to the hospital speaker system which is heard throughout CMC during the time of visiting hours. The lullaby lasts 12 seconds and begins when a member of the newborn’s family presses a button. At the end of April, Grace Yenicek became the first baby the lullaby was played to recognize. Her dad Ben and big brother Griffin were there to push the button and all of CMC celebrated with them.
“We are so excited to have this as a way to welcome babies born here at Conway Medical Center. We have heard positive feedback, not just from the parents and families of the newborns, but also from other patients in the hospital as well as staff,” states Susan Agle, RN director of customer service at Conway Medical Center. “It has been a source of encouragement around the hospital; it just lifts everyone’s spirits.”
The BirthPlace at CMC delivers more babies than any hospital in Horry County and is available to be toured on Sundays at 2 p.m. The lullaby is only played during visitor’s hours of 8 a.m.-9:30 p.m. For more information call 843-347-5895.
