The golden hour is the first hour after your baby’s birth. We would like to give you a GIFT:
This gift is for the mother, significant other, and baby. During the first hour, skin-to-skin bonding and the first feeding will occur. Visitors will be limited to mom, baby, dad (or support person), so you can have the hour to yourselves. Our nurses will be there to provide support for breastfeeding and monitoring mom and baby. This also includes the first hour of recovery from c-sections.
We encourage you to room-in together so you can respond to feeding cues from your baby and gain more comfort and confidence in caring for your baby before you go home.
