Postpartum care

Following delivery, you will experience family-centered postpartum care. This means we put your baby at your bedside, 24 hours a day (unless we need to care for them in our NICU). Your partner or designated support person may also stay with you.

Throughout your recovery, your specially trained nurse will be available to provide you with care, support and education. Our method of care enables our nurses to spend more time in your room. This is useful when you need coaching — such as breastfeeding help — encouragement or advice.

Family-centered extended NICU visitation support

Our NICU is a quiet, nurturing space for your family to spend time with your little one. We encourage you to spend plenty of time holding, feeding, and bonding with your baby. You may stay by your baby’s side almost 24 hours a day. We respectfully request no visitors for nursing handoff between 6:45am - 7:45am and 6:45pm - 7:45pm.

We also encourage you to use our NICU Children’s Library to read to your baby and connecting with the occupational therapist to learn swaddle bathing and infant massage.

Restrictions on visitation may be enforced during times of widespread epidemics to protect your newborn and our staff.
