After baby is born

  • Private post-partum rooms

    After you deliver your baby and a short observation time, you and your baby will move to our private mother-baby care rooms complete with a refrigerator and microwave for you and your families' needs. The mother-baby rooms also feature a sleeper chair, telephone, TV, CD player and full bathroom.

    Our private room maternity and mother-baby care area provides mother-baby nursing. Your baby has been close to you for many months and thrives on the security of your familiar presence. Caring for your baby in your room gives you a wonderful opportunity to get to know your baby's unique personality and to learn about or review infant care and feeding.

    Your nurse provides care for you and your baby in the comfort of your room. Breastfeeding and baby care is offered 24 hours a day by our highly trained staff. A lactation consultant is available to assist you with breastfeeding. Expert guidance from our staff is available throughout your stay.

    Screenings

    Newborn hearing and metabolic screens are done prior to discharge to assure your baby has a healthy start.

    Car seat inspections

    Car seat technicians are available to help ensure your infant car seat meets all the standards, as well as show you how to buckle your infant into the car seat properly prior to the delivery of your baby. Car seat technicians' availability is limited so be sure to inquire ahead of time.
