After Your Baby is Born
Jackson Hole Maternity Services
Our private postpartum rooms are specifically designed to allow you to
fully recover from delivery and get acquainted with your newborn. Your
postpartum nurse will be your partner in baby care providing unconditional
support and education on topics such as breastfeeding, bathing, diapering,
and care of the umbilical cord. Because we want you to return home feeling
confident in your ability to care for your baby, we encourage questions
and open discussion about the joys and challenges of parenthood. Although
most of our babies stay in their mothers’ rooms 100% of the time,
the nursery is available if you need time to yourself for rest or recovery.
In the event that your baby needs extra support in his or her first days
of life, it is reassuring to know that our nursery staff has both the
equipment and resources to provide your newborn with the highest level
of care. Every attempt is made to deliver care in a manner that fosters
bonding between you and your baby. Our Level 1 Nursery accommodates infants
needing IV treatments, oxygen, neonatal stabilization, or phototherapy.
Newborns needing more definitive care are transferred out of our hospital.
We understand how eager friends and family will be to meet your baby. Visitors
are welcome as the family wishes.
