Family Bonding

As a Baby-Friendly® birth facility, we facilitate intimate family bonding immediately after the birth of your baby. Rooming In, meaning that you and your baby remain together in the same room throughout your stay in the hospital, is encouraged. Our team will also foster skin-to-skin contact with you and your baby. Both of these practices encourage bonding and improve a baby’s ability to breastfeed.
