Visitor Information

Family in Postpartum Room

In general, visitors are welcome in the labor and delivery unit around the clock. Significant others, siblings and grandparents are welcome any time.

All visitors must be over the age of 12 and healthy. Children under 12 years of age are only allowed on the unit if they are your baby's sibling. Siblings under the age of 18 cannot stay with you without adult supervision. 

Two persons (spouse, significant other, or designated other) may accompany you during labor and delivery. Your partner may remain with you 24 hours a day. 

Only parents, or a parent and one other designated person, will be allowed to visit infants in the Special Care Nursery.
