Postpartum

After delivery, you will experience family-centered care that puts your baby at your bedside, 24 hours a day. Your partner or designated support person can stay with you and your baby as long as you are in the hospital.

You and your baby will receive personalized attention from skilled nursing and support care team. At all times, your nurse will be available to provide you with care, support and education. Our method of care enables our nurses to spend more time in your room when you need coaching, encouragement or advice. Even experienced mothers appreciate this opportunity to learn – or relearn – the finer points of newborn care within the secure environment of the hospital.

While we encourage mothers to have their baby in the room with them to help nurture mother and baby bonding, we do respect your choice of deciding what is best for you and your baby.

Remember, at Spotsylvania Regional Medical Center, you have an experienced labor and delivery team ready to help you with needs large or small. We are honored to be your partners in care on your special day – and for a lifetime.

For the Safety and Security of Your Baby

  • Do not allow anyone who does not have a Spotsylvania Regional Medical Center Women’s & Children’s Services picture identification badge to take your baby from your room.
  • Check your baby's identification bracelet each time your baby is returned to your room. Confirm that his or her bracelet matches yours.
  • Do not carry your baby in your arms in the hallway. Instead, push your baby in a bassinet.
  • Keep your baby in sight at all times. If you are alone and need a shower or a nap, we recommend that you have your baby returned to the nursery.
