Comfort for You and Your Baby

Our Maternity Unit has 13 beautiful rooms to enhance your labor, delivery and postpartum experience and keep you as comfortable as possible. We believe a family-centered approach to maternity care is essential to creating an incredible birth experience and the best outcomes for your delivery.

We encourage your support person to stay with you and provide hands-on, nurturing support through labor and help with taking care of your baby through discharge. Each of our rooms have a couch to enable your support person to stay by your side – both day and night.

Completing this form will allow our team to be well-informed and ready to go when it’s time to welcome your miracle into the world.

Patient Meals

While your diet will be limited while you are in labor, after delivery you will be able to choose from a wide variety of meal choices, available from our cafeteria between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Snacks and beverages are available in the Maternity Unit 24 hours a day.

Visitors are also welcome to bring you food from home. You and your support person can make use of the microwave and refrigerator available in the patient pantry.

Protecting Your Peace of Mind

Security measures have been put into place so that you and your family can rest assured that your stay is comfortable and safe. Identification bands will be placed on you, your baby and one accompanying support person immediately following delivery. Only individuals wearing the appropriate band will be able to retrieve your baby from the nursery.

Additionally, sensor-activated monitors are used to ensure baby is not removed from the Maternity Unit until it’s time to go home. If an alert is announced, all hospital personnel are trained to respond quickly.
