Mother and Baby Shared Care

Once your baby is finally here, you’ll want to remain close. “Rooming in” gives you a great opportunity for bonding and allows our specialized team of mother-baby nurses to educate, answer questions, provide support, and make sure you’re both doing well.

Precious Moments Quiet Time

Quiet time is offered each day from 1 p.m. - 3 p.m. and 1 a.m. - 3 a.m., as well as the first 30 minutes following birth. Quiet time is intended to:

  • Offer an extended period of rest
  • Decrease postpartum sleep deprivation
  • Facilitate bonding between mom and baby and dad and baby
  • Allow moms to breastfeed without interruption
  • Help families transition from hospital schedule to home schedule

During quiet time, visitors will not be allowed unless medically necessary or invited by mom.
