Mother Baby Unit
On our Mother Baby (postpartum) unit, Beaumont supports and encourages couplet care, in which newborns remain with their mothers in the same room for their entire stay. Couplet care enhances bonding and the ability to breastfeed. While on the Mother Baby Unit, you and your baby will receive care from an individual nurse. He or she is available to answer your questions, offer instructions on feeding and help you adjust to your new baby. Your nurse can also give you a demonstration on bathing your baby and other tasks.
And once you’re home, you are welcome to call one of our nurses anytime during those first few weeks to ask important questions. If you’re a first-time mother, you will receive a follow-up call a couple of days after your return home.
