Newborn Care

The first moments and days with your baby are precious.

Your Baby

Caring for a newborn is one of life’s most rewarding and challenging experiences. The healthcare professionals at Woman’s are committed to making your transition to motherhood as positive as possible.

Bonding With Your Newborn in Your Arms

As soon as possible after your baby is born, you will hold your newborn. As long as your baby does not need special attention, the two of you will stay in the Labor, Delivery and Recovery Room while you both recover from the birth.

This recovery time is a chance to put your baby to your breast for his first feeding. He will stay under an infant warmer or be “skin-to-skin” with you under a warm blanket until his body temperature is stable.
