Mother and Baby Postpartum Unity

Our Mother Baby postpartum unit offers 28 private rooms featuring lactation support and RN couplet care to limit interruptions and exposure. Here you and your family will get an opportunity to recover from your birthing experience, while maintaining consistent practices from Labor and Delivery.

We encourage you to continue enjoying "skin to skin" opportunities to promote bonding and breastfeeding. Our highly trained and experienced nursing staff is at your side to offer education, support and guidance through this special time.

Couplet Care

Couplet Care is designed to provide newborns and mothers with the best possible start in life and provide a boost to the newborn's immune system, just like breastfeeding.

  • Mother Baby nurses are highly skilled and cross-trained to care for both the mother and newborn
  • Babies and mothers stay together in the same room, and the same nurse provides care for both mother and baby
  • Not only are bonding and breastfeeding opportunities enhanced, but the newborn benefits just from being in the same area as the parents
  • If you are breastfeeding, then your baby has double protection because of the close "skin to skin" contact
