Maternal-Child Unit (post-delivery)

Mother and baby

Once your baby is born, you will both move to our Maternal-Child Unit, designed for the special needs of new mothers and their babies. This usually happens approximately two hours after your baby is born. Our family-centered approach supports the bonding of mothers and babies through "rooming-in," allowing you and your newborn to get to know each other. Because skin-to-skin contact and feeding on cue are so important to developing that special bond between mother and baby and for breastfeeding success, your baby will remain with you throughout your stay. We also offer separate in-room accommodations for fathers or support persons and encourage them to be a part of your care.
