If you feel nervous about caring for a 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.
As a Baby-Friendly designated hospital, we use the Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding and the International Code of Marketing of Breast-milk Substitutes to give mothers the information, confidence, and skills they need to successfully initiate and continue breastfeeding or formula-feed safely.
