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 4 guests with you in the room at a time.

  • Your primary labor support person and 3 additional guests.
  • Children under 12 are limited to siblings and must be accompanied by an adult whose only task is their care.

Family-centered postpartum

  • Healthy children are welcome.
  • Children under 2 are limited to siblings.
  • “Quiet Time” is observed daily. Plan in advance and let your friends and family know.


Along with the second-floor waiting area outside Labor and Delivery, there are other useful services for your family and friends available on the first-floor main lobby, including a gift shop and Wellness Café.
