Lactation Support

Breastfeeding education starts during special sessions of our prenatal classes with lactation consultants and educators helping expectant families prepare. Private consultations are offered as needed during your postpartum stay to further support the breastfeeding process.

Safety for You and Your Baby

One thing you will be acquainted with on your tour of our Birth Center is our infant security system. A special device causes all doors to lock down and alerts our staff if any infant is carried close to or beyond the entrance of the Birth Center. We also use a tamperproof system that matches you and your baby throughout your stay. You can feel assured that your baby is safe and secure in our hospital.
