Visitor and guest guidelines

Labor and delivery observation

At this stage, one guest can be with you until you are moved to a labor room or discharged.

Labor and delivery

During labor, you’re welcome to have a limited number of guests with you in the room.

  • Your primary labor support person and additional guests.
  • Children under 12 are limited to siblings and must be accompanied by an adult whose only task is their care.


Along with the third-floor waiting area outside Labor and Delivery, there are other useful services for your family and friends available on the first-floor of the hospital building, including a gift shop, Healthy Living Store, 24-hour pharmacy, and ATM (in the cafeteria).
