Mother Baby Bonding Time

Effective, Sunday, March 1, 2020, Maternal Child Health is pleased to initiate Bonding Time in the Mother Baby Unit. This practice would provide mother and baby quiet time each day where the couplet may rest and bond without the interruption of visitors, hospital staff and vendors.

Why is it important?
Previous studies show that bonding time may decrease family interruptions, promote rest, increase both bonding and exclusive breastfeeding, and ultimately increase patient satisfaction!

How does it work?
Bonding Time will occur between 2:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. daily. During this time, hospital staff, physicians, vendors (hearing screeners and photographers), and volunteers will not enter the patient’s room unless requested by the patient or medically necessary. Visitors will not be allowed, other than the banded significant other, unless requested by the patient.
