Care After Delivery

Women's Care After Delivery at Southern Regional

The Women's Life Center Cares for You and Your New Baby

After the baby is born, families are encouraged and welcomed to stay together with their newborn in the Mother/Baby Unit. Our knowledgeable staff will help you begin the parenting experience while caring for your baby at your bedside. A whimsical, carrousel-themed nursery is available for your newborn if you prefer to rest or if the baby needs closer observation.

Our state-of-the-art Mother/Baby Unit consists of 40 postpartum rooms and a nursery. The unit is staffed with Registered Nurses, techs, and secretaries to facilitate meeting all of your needs during your hospital stay. The Women's Life Center has internationally-accredited lactation consultants available seven days a week to assist mothers with breastfeeding. There is also a vital records clerk available daily to help you with completing the necessary paperwork for your baby's birth certificate.

Additionally, we have an independent photo company available to take your baby's pictures and internet video clips. We offer a daily Mother/Baby care class to ensure that you and your family feel confident providing care for your newborn, as well as yourself. We understand that the needs of every woman, baby, and family are unique, and the staff at SRMC is committed to going above and beyond your expectations.
