After your baby is born, you will be transferred to Mother/Baby to rest,
recover and bond with your newborn. We know that moms and babies are happiest
when they are together that’s why place a high importance on things
that moms and babies love, like skin-to-skin, lots of time to bond and
limited interruptions. Our secure, comfortable Mother/Baby unit allows
you to bond with your baby while being helped and cared for by the Mother/Baby
nursing staff. We also offer lactation consultants that can help answer your
breast or bottle feeding questions.
During your hospital stay, your baby will receive a newborn hearing test,
and we will give you the needed forms so you can order your baby’s
birth certificate and social security card. You will receive a souvenir
hospital birth record from us to commemorate the birth.
