Pregnancy & Childbirth Amenities at Huntington Hospital
Labor and Delivery Rooms
At Huntington Hospital, we have labor, delivery and recovery room (LDRs) for vaginal deliveries and three surgical suites for caesarean section deliveries all in one area. All of these rooms include the most advanced equipment and monitoring systems, welcoming baby more safely.
After your baby arrives, we provide quiet time known as The Golden Hour in Labor and Delivery. Your baby will be placed skin-to-skin to get to know mom, dad and/or partner. This is not just a great time to bond, but also helps your baby physically transition to the outside world. After the first hour, if desired, 3-4 visitors may visit mom and baby in the LDR. In the case of a cesarean section delivery, the baby can be moved to the mother’s chest as soon as possible after birth to encourage bonding during this special time.
Our Mother Baby postpartum unit offers 32 private rooms and 6 rooms designated for phototherapy and other situations. Here you and your family will be cared for as you bond with your new baby. All of our family-centered postpartum rooms include their own private bathroom and shower as well as televisions, telephones, fully adjustable beds, a bassinet for your baby and sleep accommodations for your support person.
We encourage nesting time between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. to allow for family bonding and rest.
For you and your family, we provide inpatient room service with unique restaurant style ordering, the Bistro Café for guests and our Coffee Shop which offers Starbucks coffee and other refreshments.
Comfort and Treat Carts
Forget something? Our comfort cart rounds on the Maternity unit every afternoon to provide toiletries and other items you may need to help make your stay more comfortable. Hungry? The treat cart visits every afternoon to provide healthy snacks, cookies, coffee and tea for our resting families.
Baby Portrait Service
Our hospital offers a baby portrait service. Parents, friends and families can view portraits of newborns via a secure website that requires a Guest Access Code to access any images.
Souvenir Birth Certificates (not a legal document)
Before you go home, you will receive a complimentary commemorative certificate signed by your obstetrician with your child’s birth information and an area for footprints.
In our commitment to family centered care, Huntington Hospital respects all types of birthing arrangements and parenting choices. We strive to meet the special needs of adoptions, surrogacy and same-gender parenting with sensitivity and compassion. Sometimes, baby or mom may need to stay in the hospital longer for a medical concern. When space allows, we encourage our families and babies to stay together, by offering a room on the unit for use by family during this time.
