Read details below.

  • On the Mother Baby Unit, mothers and babies who are well will be permitted only one essential care partner who will stay with you for most of the time. An essential care partner is permitted to leave and return from the hospital as needed. You can expect to stay between 36 to 72 hours after delivery.
  • Visiting hours are from 2pm to 8pm daily. During visiting hours, in addition to your essential care partner, a maximum of two adult visitors at the bedside at a time are permitted. In addition to the two adult visitors at the bedside, siblings of the newborn are permitted. No children under the age of 14 are allowed to visit, except for siblings of the baby. Be mindful that in a shared room, other patients may have essential care partners and a visiting second support person as well. Please keep noise levels to a minimum to respect your roommates.
  • A baby of a presumed or confirmed positive COVID-19 mother will stay in the room with the mother, if both the baby and mom are well. Mom should wear a medical mask and perform hand hygiene when feeding or handling baby. You must have a healthy support person present to help care for your baby for the duration of the stay. Only the essential care partner is permitted.
  • For babies requiring a follow-up appointment in our clinics (Jaundice or Breastfeeding), two parent(s)/caregiver(s) may accompany the baby. If the baby requires admission for treatment, both parent(s)/caregiver(s) are permitted to stay with baby.
