Perinatal navigator

The navigator partners with healthcare team members, providers and specialists to help develop a plan of care to achieve the best possible outcomes. You will be provided with the emotional support, education, and care coordination you may need along your journey.

Your hospital stay

During your hospital stay, we want your family to feel welcome and a part of this wonderful celebration of new life. One person that you designate may stay with you overnight in our private rooms or suites. Big brothers and big sisters of the baby are also encouraged to visit mom and baby upon transfer to Mother/Baby unit. Children are not permitted in Labor and Delivery and are not to stay overnight in Mother/Baby unit. We honor quiet hours each day from 2:00pm-4:00pm. This is a great time for you to get some rest.
