Newborn Nurseries

The Women's Hospital at Saint Joseph East includes a comprehensive staff of expert nurses and specialists focused on delivering the highest quality health care for your baby.

Your Newborn Nursery Experience - What to Expect:

Women's Hospital Nursery

  • After your infant is born, he/she is taken to the transitional nursery where assessments and evaluations are performed.
  • Once your baby is ready, he/she is transferred to the primary care nursery.
  • Your nurse will bring your baby to your room and help you care for and learn about your newborn.
  • When you need to rest, your nurse will return your baby to his/her nursery where he/she will be cared for until you are ready to visit again.
  • Lactation specialists are available to assist with proper technique and comfort level.
