Neonatal intensive care
If your baby needs extra care after birth, we can provide immediate care in our Level III neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). Here, our neonatal doctors and nurses deliver highly specialized care to our tiniest patients.
After you give birth, our maternity team continues to support you and your baby with family-centered postpartum care. We are here to help you begin your recovery, learn to breastfeed (if you'd like) and learn to care for your new baby with confidence.
Postpartum depression support
Pregnancy and birth are wondrous and life-changing experiences. As such, many women experience the "baby blues" after birth, which may be described as feelings of sadness and fatigue. However, if these feelings last for more than a short time, it could be postpartum depression.
If you feel you may have postpartum depression, you're not alone. Postpartum depression is common. In fact, about one in eight women report having postpartum depression symptoms.
We recommend talking with your OB/GYN or nurse if you experience postpartum depression symptoms, as they can help you get the support and resources you need to feel better. Seeking help is the first step to feeling like yourself again.

Some tips to remember after you give birth to your little one
- Always place your baby on their back to sleep, for naps and at night.
- Place your baby on a firm sleep surface, such as on a safety Dash-approved crib mattress, covered by a fitted sheet.
- Keep soft objects, toys, and loose bedding out of your baby's area.
- Do not allow smoking around your baby.
- Keep your baby's sleep area close to, but separate from, where you and others sleep.
- Think about using a clean, dry pacifier when placing your infant down to sleep.
