At The Birth Place

Visiting Policies at The Birth Place

All visitors must wait outside the LDR for the first hour and a half after delivery.

  • This private time is used specifically to acquaint the newborn with his/her parents.

After the skin to skin bonding, two (2) people are allowed to visit at a time in the LDR.
All other visitors can either rotate in to visit, or they may wait in the Labor and Delivery waiting room.

  • We understand that this is an exciting time for families and friends, but due to fire department regulations, we cannot have people waiting in the hallways.
  • Our two person visitation policy is also for the baby's protection and infection control; we ask that visitors utilize the waiting room and rotate visitation.
  • Only siblings of the baby are allowed to visit. Other children may visit if they are 12 and older.
