Mom & Baby Care

Following the birth of your baby, you will be admitted to our Mother Baby Unit to rest and enjoy bonding with your little one. Each hospital's Mother Baby Unit has rooms specifically designed to offer you and your baby a calming and comfortable environment for the rest of your hospital stay.

Mother Baby Unit

Our Mother Baby Units include private rooms, where we provide couplet care, meaning that a single nurse will care for you and your baby. Along with this attentive care, these rooms have many amenities to ensure your comfort, including private bathrooms, free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, room service, and convertible furniture for loved one who wish to stay overnight. We also provide a gift bag to each family, filled with newborn essentials.

Postpartum

We offer a support group and other resources for mothers experiencing postpartum mood swings, anxiety, sadness or irritability. While these symptoms are common, it’s important to recognize them and find help that is beneficial to your health. Group meetings are held monthly and free to attend.

Your New Life Begins

Once you’ve had time to bond with your baby and you’re both healthy, it's time to journey home. At each of our hospitals, we make sure you go home prepared for recovery and the care of your newborn. Let us help you make the transition from the hospital to home as easy as possible. Now's the time to welcome your baby home, bond as a family, and grow together.
