Maternity onto Motherhood (MOM) Program

We’re here to help parents with trusted resources, support and services that are available to you, close to home.

We're here to help you care for your newborn. You’re not alone.

Your nurses have gone through advanced training and experience, and will teach you how to care for baby, as we recognize that is an important part of your hospital stay. Your nurse can help with limiting daytime interruptions and phone calls if you’d like, so that you can rest during the day when your baby sleeps. 

You are also welcome to invite family or a support person to stay with you while you are in the hospital, as you may find them helpful.
