    Nursery


    The Newborn Nursery provides flexibility for new mothers. You may room in at all times, bring the baby to the nursery for breaks or allow our experienced nursery staff to care for your baby while you sleep. Our nursery staff and Certified Childbirth Educators are eager to help new moms with the transition from hosptial nursery to home.

    Visitor Guidelines

    • The Women’s Center, a lock-down unit, includes a camera-monitored security entrance providing safety for you and your baby.
    • Visitors are asked to remain in the waiting room during the admission process. We welcome your support person to share in the joy of your delivery. If you wish for other family or friends to attend your delivery, please discuss this with your nurse. During labor and delivery, visitors are limited to 4 at a time. This allows us to give you the care you need. However, we reserve the right to limit visitors if your condition changes.
    • Only one support person is allowed in the operating room during Ceasarean sections.
    • Ask your nurse about our policy on hand-held cameras/VCR movie cameras.
