While you are at the Family Birth Center, the goal is to create a new family.
We want you to feel comfortable in your role as a parent when you leave our facility.

With this in mind, you are encouraged to keep your baby with you at all times. By keeping your baby with you, there are several advantages and benefits:

  • Sleep - research shows that babies sleep better when they are with their parents.
  • Recognition of feeding cues - a baby will eat better when showing feeding cues. Our staff is able to assist you in identifying these cues. This is particularly important if you are breastfeeding.
  • Bonding - time with your baby is essential and helps you get to know your baby.

We are here for you! We realize that there may be times you need assistance in caring for your baby. At such times, our staff is here to assist you and make your stay as comfortable as possible.

With the help of our staff, you will:

  • Have the same nurse care for you and your baby
  • Learn the basics of infant care
  • Be able to identify areas where you have questions about caring for your baby
  • Have your baby bathed, weighed and stay with you in your room the entire stay provided the baby is not having medical concerns

Thank you for allowing us to care for you during this special time in your life!
