|On our Mother Baby (postpartum) unit, Beaumont-Dearborn supports and encourages rooming in. This means keeping mom, baby and family together during the first few days of life. Being together with your newborn is the best way to create and strengthen the mother/baby/family bond. Spending as much time together as possible will help you to get to know your new baby, learn how to care for them and enable you to provide the soothing comfort they need. Rooming-in enhances bonding and the ability to breastfeed.
