For the security of our babies, every visitor must present a valid driver’s license or a government approved photo ID to enter the unit. No exceptions.
When may I visit while my loved one is in Labor and Delivery?
Visiting Hours in Labor and Delivery are 24 hours.
How many visitors can I have and do they have to be a certain age?
Each patient is allowed two visitors during active labor and delivery. Up to 5 visitors may be allowed during the immediate post-delivery period. There is a waiting room by the security desk for all other visitors. Children under the age of 16 are not allowed to visit in Labor and Delivery.
If you are having a Cesarean birth, in most cases you are allowed to have 1 support person in the operating room with you. You are also allowed only 1 person visiting you in the recovery room at a time to allow adequate time for recovery.
How many overnight visitors may I have? What about my baby’s siblings?
Once you reach your postpartum room, you are allowed 1 overnight visitor. Otherwise, visiting hours are 10 am to 10 pm with up 5 visitors at a time. Siblings of the baby are allowed to visit on the postpartum unit. No other children are allowed to visit so we can keep our newborns healthy.
Can I request a private room?
We will do everything possible to keep you in a private room. However, in the event of a sudden increase in our unit census, please understand that you may have a roommate for a period of time. We understand everyone's desire for a private room and will do everything possible to maintain your privacy and assign you to a private room as quickly as possible.
