Visiting Hours

In order to allow for optimal time for the new family to get to know one another, we offer these visiting hours in the Obstetrics Department:


  • The mother is allowed to designate one support person who is able to be with his/her loved one around the clock. There is a fold out bed available in Mom’s postpartum room and we will supply the linen for your use.
  • Arrangements between the nurse and the new mother can be made for family and friends to meet the newest member of the family shortly after he or she arrives.
  • In order to provide for the health and safety of your family, we ask that only two visitors (in addition to the support person) be in your room at a time.  No one under the age of 12 is permitted in the OB Department except siblings of the infant.  All visitors must check in at the nurse's station. You may be asked to step out of the room at any time in order for the staff to provide care and education to our patients. There are no set visiting hours but we ask you to be respectful of our new mothers as they get to know their infants.
