Families are First Birthing Center

What to Expect

Our team is committed to you and your family and making your birth a smooth, exciting and life-changing experience.

What to Expect

Our labor and delivery rooms are spacious, private and provide peace and tranquility before, during and after delivery that allows you to enjoy this special time with your new baby. When you arrive, you will enter into our locked unit (ensuring the safety of you and all our families) and be led to your room.

A plan of care will be carefully discussed with you and we will keep you and your support person up-to-date on the procedures and progress of your labor every step of the way.

The Golden Hour

The golden hour is the first hour after your baby’s birth.  We would like to give you a GIFT:
G-iving
I-ntimate
F-amily
T-ime
 
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.  
 

Happy 'Birth' Day Celebration Meal

Bringing a new life into the world is such a joyful time! 

Bristol Health wants to treat you to a congratulatory meal, so relax and be pampered and enjoy a special “Birth” Day Dinner. After dinner indulge in some cupcakes in celebration of the little one. The cupcakes are delicious, so we encourage you to invite family and friends to enjoy these tasty treats and take the rest home with you. 
 
Dinner menu may include choices of entrée: Coconut Fried Shrimp, Egg-Battered Chicken Marsala, or New York Strip Steak.  All entrees are served with Caesar salad, baked potato, vegetables, and dinner rolls.

Lunch with Mom

To help siblings bond with baby, we also offer "Lunch with Mom".  Parents and siblings enjoy a lunch with mom and new baby.
