After Your Baby is Born

You may have your baby stay with you in your room as much as you desire. If you would like some time alone, we can care for your baby in a nursery near your room.

Although your hospital stay may be short, you can still take advantage of daily infant care and breastfeeding classes. Before you leave the hospital, you will receive information about infant care, post partum care, and breast or bottle feeding.

Anything you need…

At Strong Beginnings we feel privileged to share in the joy as you plan for the birth of your baby. Our guide answers many of the questions you may have and helps ensure that your baby gets a safe and healthy start.
