A lactation consultant and a breastfeeding educator are also available to answer breastfeeding questions and offer assistance during your stay.

Family-Centered Approach to Childbirth

The first few days after the birth of your baby are so important.

To give you and your baby all the time you want to form that special bond, Methodist Richardson encourages you to keep your newborn in your room with you as much as possible.

You determine how much time you want to spend together. If you feel you need uninterrupted rest, the staff will care for your baby in the nursery, allowing you to wake up refreshed and ready to spend quality time with your new baby.
