If you are having a baby, another bracelet will be placed on your wrist in Delivery. This band number matches the number on your baby's identification band.

Visitation is limited in the labor rooms. Visitors may be asked to leave when physicians are visiting patients. Siblings may visit at any time if they are in good health.

Women's Hospital observes the Golden Hour so that parents and their new baby can spend time together as a family. The Golden Hour begins immediately after delivery and lasts for at least the first hour after birth. The baby's father or a support person is welcome. Mothers who have a C-section are offered this bonding time in the Recovery Room. Visitors are welcome to see the baby after the Golden Hour. Only three adult visitors, including the father, are allowed in the mother's room when the baby is present.

Labor & Delivery

  • Two visitors are allowed n the labor room during the labor process.
  • Siblings may visit with the mother during labor, but no other children under age 12 are permitted to visit.
  • Visitors may wait in the lobby or dining areas. Guests may not congregate in the hallway that leads from the admissions lobby to the labor rooms, in order to protect patient privacy and to keep this area open for room access.
  • With physician consent, the father or other support person may be present during delivery. Only one support person may be in the operating room if a C-section is required.
  • During special procedures, such as placement of an epidural, all visitors may be asked to leave the room. Your nurse will notify visitors when it is appropriate to return.
  • The father or other support person may be asked to leave the labor room if the nurse or physician deem it necessary for the well-being of the mother or baby.
  • Adults and siblings who are not ill may visit the mother and newborn during the recovery period, at your nurses' discretion.

Post Partum Unit

  • Visiting hours are from 10 a.m.-8:30 p.m.
  • Siblings may visit the mother, even when the baby is in the room, but no other children under the age of 12 are permitted to visit.
