Delivering Your Baby at The Birth Place
You will deliver in a labor, delivery, and recovery room (LDR) and will
stay 1-2 hours after birth (for vaginal delivery).
Immediately after birth, we practice skin to skin contact for an enhanced
bonding experience for newborns and parents.
Our staff has received special training to assist you with breast feeding.
The Birth Place also has a lactation consultant to assist you in breast feeding.
Your baby's security is very important to us. You will be informed
about the specifics of our infant safety procedure upon your arrival.
For information about the electronic security device placed on your baby's
ankle, please see our
Keeping Your Baby Safe section.
Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is for babies that need observation, medication, or treatment. We will
inform you if your baby is transferred to the NICU.
