Full-Term Nursery

Baby in nursery

We know what it means to be a new parent. And our pediatricians are here to help.

Postpartum and newborn care for all healthy late preterm and term babies born at our hospital is provided in our newly renovated mother/baby unit and nursery.  This care is provided at the same location, by the same caregivers, and with the same family-centered approach that guided your prenatal care and delivery.

We focus on giving moms and new babies as much time together as possible. We encourage skin-to-skin contact immediately after birth for healthy moms and babies. We also encourage healthy infants to stay in the same room with their moms.

Our team of pediatric specialists offer comprehensive care and monitoring of your baby. If your baby has special care needs, we are adjacent to the neonatal intensive care unit, NICU. You’ll still have access to your newborn at all times and will be included in routine care whenever possible.

We also provide our new moms with the highest quality of care available. This includes certified lactation specialists—available day or evening and on weekends—to provide breastfeeding support and assist with all feeding needs. Outpatient lactation follow-up support is free of charge after you leave the hospital.

We offer a variety of appointment types. Learn more or call 913-588-1227 to schedule now.
