The Women's Center provides a family-centered friendly approach to care. We recognize how important it is to you to share your excitement and your newborn to family and friends. Our staff is committed to helping you build memories and protecting the health and safety of all of our babies.
Visiting hours are encouraged between 8 a.m. and 9 p.m.
- During labor, two support people may be present at a time and other visitors may wait in the Family Waiting Room
- At delivery, a second support person can be present. As always, nursing will support your request for no visitors if you wish
- During a Cesarean delivery and in the immediate recovery room, one support person may visit with mom
- On the Mother-Baby Unit, grandparents, siblings and other family and friends are welcome
We encourage you to limit your visitors until you are home to allow for your rest, healing and time to get to know your baby.
Rest and Rejuvenation Time
Our nursing staff is committed to providing you the rest and recovery you need in the hospital, which helps provide a healing and restful experience.
Every day from 1 to 3 p.m., we provide you, your newborn and support person quiet time to rest. Unless there is a medical need or a special visitor request from mom, visitors will be asked to wait in the family waiting room during this precious family rest time.
We offer every family a special time, called the “Sacred Hours,” where we practice skin-to-skin contact between mother and her newborn. This is a very special time for mom, baby and support partner, which supports emotional and physical well-being of mother and baby and initiation of breastfeeding. Your nurse will provide information and breastfeeding assistance to help you get started.
