Mother & Baby Unit

Mother & Baby Unit

St. Joseph’s Women's Hospital patients will experience family-centered care in rooms that offer the comfort of a home-like setting along with the assurance of having the most advanced equipment available. We have comfortable and private Mother & Baby rooms with attractive décor and furnishings.

Some other highlights to make your stay pleasant include:

  • Fathers may visit mother and baby at any time. Family visiting hours are 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, but a patient may choose to limit her visitation hours.
  • Advanced security for mothers and babies
  • A well-baby nursery
  • Lactation support for breast-feeding moms through classes, support groups and the sale or rental of breast pumps
  • A rooming-in feature which allows a mother to have the baby in the room with her around the clock. To promote family bonding, we care for mother and infant in the same room.
