Support and Security

Although all of our postpartum nurses have completed several hours of breastfeeding education, lactation consultants are also available to discuss beneficial techniques and to help you through those first few breastfeeding sessions.

"Code Pink" is our infant security system. After birth, a sensor is attached to your baby's umbilical stump, and it can only be removed by approved staff members. The sensor alerts us to any unauthorized movement of your child. Color-coded uniforms provide an additional safety measure that lets us know which staff members have permission to transport infants.
