ENSURING POST-DELIVERY COMFORT

Promoting bonding, initiating successful breastfeeding and providing comfort is our priority the first few hours after delivery. Following your baby’s delivery, you may find you prefer to spend some time with only your baby and your family prior to allowing visitors. Please know that this is a very acceptable feeling to have, and if you feel unable to regulate visitors yourself, the Birthing Center staff will assist you.
