Infant Services

 

Once your baby is born the same nurse who has been caring for you will also care for your newborn. Our nurses will help you learn to care for your infant if this is your first experience and will be happy to answer your questions. While we encourage you to have your infant with you as much as possible to help you get to know your baby, we also understand that there may be times when you need additional rest or time to yourself and then our nurses can look after your infant in the newborn nursery.

If your baby needs additional support, our Special Care Nurses, along with our newborn-trained respiratory therapists, will work with your baby's doctor to meet your baby's needs. Should your baby require an intensive care setting, our nurses are also experienced in working with the transfer team from a nearby tertiary care center to ensure a smooth transition in your baby's care.
