Maternal-fetal medicine

Our hospital provides access to maternal-fetal medicine experts who specialize in managing high-risk pregnancies and complications that could harm you or your baby. Maternal-fetal medicine doctors receive three extra years of in-depth training focused on pregnancies and deliveries that may signal challenges.

Neonatal intensive care

Our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is equipped to manage babies who need extra care and support following delivery, ranging from unexpected medical conditions to known congenital (present at birth) conditions to those born prematurely.

Our NICU offers:

  • Gentle, yet critical neonatal care — Our NICU specialists are able to care for babies born before 32 weeks or weighing less than 3.3 pounds.
  • Medical response available at a moment’s notice — Our neonatal medical team includes an in-house neonatal nurse practitioner 24/7 and a board-certified neonatologist on call and rapidly available around the clock to provide immediate care to your baby if needed.
  • Leading neonatal expertise — Our entire team is dedicated to the care of your precious newborn. Our experienced team includes neonatologists (doctors with advanced training to care for sick or premature newborns), neonatal nurse practitioners, neonatal specialty nurses, respiratory therapists, occupational therapists, feeding and swallowing therapists, physical therapists, social workers/case management workers, lactation consultants and neonatal dietitians.
  • Parental involvement — You are encouraged to be actively involved with your baby while they are hospitalized. Recliner chairs are at the bedside to allow personal time with your baby for skin-to-skin or snuggled holding, as well as resting and napping between care times for your baby. While you may remain with your baby for the entire duration, we strongly encourage you to get the rest you need, as you are a critical part of your baby’s care team. We invite you to be present for the morning daily rounds with the medical team to engage and learn about the plans for the day.
  • Low stimulation care — We provide developmentally appropriate care for premature infants and infants withdrawing from opioids who need a quieter, lower light and gentle stimulation environment.
  • Special circumstances — We can re-admit a baby after discharge from the hospital to the NICU if your baby is less than 30 days old, less than 44 weeks gestation and without any obvious contagious illness. Candidates for readmission may include management of jaundice, poor feeding and failure to grow.
  • Rooming-in accommodations
  • Support for immature lungs
  • Access to donor breast milk
  • Access to breast pumps

Family–centered NICU support

Our NICU is a quiet, nurturing space for your family to spend time with your little one.

  • Bonding times — You can stay by your baby’s side almost 24 hours a day. We respectfully request no visitors for nursing handoff between 6:45am to 7:45am and 6:45pm to 7:45pm.
  • We encourage you to spend plenty of hands-on time holding or feeding your baby.
  • We encourage you to use our NICU Children’s Library to read to your baby.
  • We encourage you to connect with the occupational therapist and learn swaddle bathing and infant massage.
  • Restrictions on visitation may be enforced during times of widespread epidemics to protect your newborn and our staff.

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.

Maternity classes and hospital tours

It is natural for expectant parents to have lots of questions before their baby’s arrival. We provide you with the information and training you need to prepare for childbirth and care for your new baby.

Maternity education

  • We offer free hospital tours and maternity classes.
  • Our maternity classes are on a rotating basis throughout each month and include:
    • Baby Basics
    • Breastfeeding Basics
