After Delivery

The "Golden Hour" immediately after birth is critical for family bonding, even if you delivered by cesarean section. We encourage skin-to-skin contact within the first hour of delivery for both the mother and her partner. We also encourage the mother to initiate breastfeeding during the Golden Hour. Our lactation specialists are available 24/7 to help with the best techniques.
