Postpartum and newborn care

Mother/Baby Unit and 24-hour rooming-in

After the delivery of your baby and the 1-2 hour recovery period in the Birth Unit, you and your new baby will be moved over to the Mother/Baby Unit. Here, you will be cared for by Registered Nurses and Registered Practical Nurses.


Our model of care is to keep well babies and new moms together as much as possible. The 24-hour rooming-in model means that your baby will be provided with all the needed care and assessments at your bedside. This gives you the opportunity to get to know your baby and for your Nurse to teach and assist you with baby care.
