Maternal Child

Maternal Child creates a warm, family-oriented environment for expecting parents and their families.

Located above the Main Lobby on the east end of the hospital, the unit has three exam rooms, one minor procedure room, and eight Labor/Delivery/Recovery/Postpartum rooms (called LDRPs). The department provides care and services to low-risk patients as well as high-risk (level two) patients. Our OB unit also features a C-Section operating room, a six-bed Level II NICU Nursery, and three dedicated Postpartum rooms.

The Level II NICU Nursery cares for premature newborns needing more intensive care. A caring and experienced nursing staff is here to support each patient through the birthing process and post-partum care, including breastfeeding and bottle feeding.

Breastfeeding 101

Did you know:

  • Babies eat 10 to 12 times in a 24-hour period
  • Babies' tummies are only the size of a cherry (5 to 7 ml) when they are born. By day two, tummies have stretched to 3x (15 to 17 ml) that size. By day three, they can be as big as their fist or about the size of a shot glass (30 ml).

How can you tell if your baby is getting enough to eat?
WATCH their fist/hands. When a baby is hungry, their hands are balled up in a fist. As they get full, their fists relax. If a baby detaches and falls asleep, hands relaxed, they are done. If one hand is in a fist, place them skin to skin as they will wake up within half an hour and will want to nurse from the other side.

If it hurts when your baby is nursing, and/or popping on and off, getting mad, OR falling asleep but not really nursing, it may be a shallow latch. Babies need a mouthful, and sometimes you have to hold your breast so they get a good latch and wait for them to figure it out. It can take a few tries to get going. A good job for dads is to help guide their baby and compress the breast so that they can get their mouth around it.

What is the best way to wake a baby to eat?
Place your baby skin to skin. One way is to have your baby in a diaper and place it between the breasts inside of your clothing. Your baby should wake within a half hour and start wanting to eat.

The first few days are busy times for mothers and their babies. Just rest when you can and nurse your baby when they want to nurse. This will bring your milk in sooner and will insure you make what your baby needs. Cluster nursing is normal and will happen from time to time as your baby grows, too. Just keep swimming. It does get easier.
