Couplet Care

We practice couplet care, which means your baby stays with you in your room at all times, even while examinations are performed. The same nurse will care for both you and your baby, optimizing communication, and we offer specialized care for babies who need closer observation. Although we encourage you to have your baby in your room to help you learn to care for your baby and nurture bonding, we understand you may occasionally need undisturbed rest. When this is the case, you can rest assured your little one is safe and secure in our nursery with staff specially trained and dedicated to infant care.
