The Birth Center
For Family & Friends
A new baby is a special time for family and friends of the new mom.
To learn more about visiting mom and the new baby,
please read below and take the time to learn more about
The Sacred Hour.
Mission Hospital provides a family-centered friendly approach to care.
We recognize how important it is to you to share your excitement and your
newborn to family and friends. Our staff is committed to helping you build
memories and protecting the health and safety of all of our babies.
All visitors will be required to receive an ID badge issued by our Security
Officers at all hospital entrances before proceeding to the Maternity
Center. During labor, one support person may stay with mom. A second support
person may be present. Other visitors may wait in the Family Waiting Room.
If desired, the second support person can be rotated between your visitors.
As always, nursing will support mother’s request for no visitors
if she desires. During a Cesarean Delivery and immediate recovery room,
one support person will be welcomed to be with mom.
On the Mother-Baby Unit, grandparents, siblings and other family and friends
are welcome. We encourage you to limit your visitors until you are home
to allow for your rest, healing and time to get to know your baby.
Family Nap Time
We provide a family nap time every day from 3 to 5 p.m.
Our nursing staff is committed to providing you the rest and recovery you
need in the hospital, which helps provide a healing and restful experience.
Every day from 3 to 5 p.m., we provide you and your newborn and support
person quiet time to rest. Unless there is a medical need or a special
visitor request from mom, visitors will be asked to wait in the family
waiting room during this precious family nap time.
