Your Family Hour

 

Your first hour with your baby should be a special time for making memories. At Parkview, you can choose how you would like to spend that precious mother-baby bonding time we call the Family Hour.

You can select from several options to create your personalized Family Hour:

  • No visitors: mom and support person only (recommended)

  • Limited visitors: mom, support person, immediate family

  • No restriction on visitors

  • Lights dimmed

  • Begin breastfeeding baby

  • Cuddle and hold baby

  • Skin-to-skin contact

You may choose not to participate in a structured Family Hour.

For safety’s sake, Family Birthing Center staff members will check on you and your baby periodically to see that you are both doing well after delivery.
