Skilled and Knowledgeable Nursing Staff
Nursing staff on the Woman and Children’s unit are both friendly and knowledgeable. They communicate with you along the way, working to assure that you have a great experience and provide your growing family with the skills needed for a worry free stay and transition home.
Staying close to your baby counts!
Since bonding with your baby during the first few days after birth is imperative to the baby's growth and development, our birthing center is designed for optimal time between your baby and you. Your baby stays in the room with you and we encourage skin to skin contact with mom and dad to help facilitate secure attachment.
Many of our nursing staff are or are working towards certification in their field. With extra education in the area of labor and delivery our nurses are proud to be part of labor and delivery RN certified programs. In addition there are nurses certified in lactation and in midwifery on our unit. We have a diverse and caring nursing staff who are educated to support you and your family.
We Involve You in Every Decision
We strive to provide each person the best care, in the right place, at the right time, every time. During your hospital stay the best way to do this is for our staff to check on you (or your family member) frequently.
Please do not hesitate to ask your nurse any questions you may have about rounding or anything else.
Our skilled lactation consultants work full time seeing you before, during and after your stay with us to assure that feeding your baby is off to the right start. No matter how you chose to feed your baby, know that our lactation services are there for your family to answer questions and promote health for you and your little one.
Breastfeeding Support Classes
We encourage you to come back to one of our evening breastfeeding support classes called Bosom Buddies. Whatever your breastfeeding or mothering questions may be, they will be acknowledged and supported in a relaxed and caring environment, through peer and professional support.
