Postpartum Care

We provide all of our families with postpartum monitoring and support that extends from the birth center into the home environment. We strongly encourage breastfeeding and promote bonding between mom and baby by keeping the family together after birth for critical bonding time. Our nurses and midwives encourage babies to latch on their own within the first hour of birth while providing additional support as needed.
