Keeping You and Your Baby Together

We do our best to keep babies where they are meant to be – with their families. After delivery, for stable newborns, this is the ideal time for you to hold your newborn baby skin to skin on your chest. Throughout your postpartum recovery on our Maternal Infant Unit, you are with your new baby the entire time.

*Breastfeeding education is a nursing scope of practice and is provided as part of the labor and delivery service line. Expecting moms who have pre-registered at Sunrise are eligible to enroll in the class, and the cost is included in their delivery fees. The fee for the breastfeeding course is $30 to community members who wish to take part in our education offerings but have not yet pre-registered to deliver at Sunrise.
