Mother Baby Unit

After delivering your baby, you will enjoy a stay on the Mother Baby Unit in one of 50 private suites that feature many of the same amenities as the labor and delivery rooms. 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.

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.
